New issue from the Issue Tracker
Navigate to your Project's Dashboard > Issues > New Issue to create a new issue:

New issue from the project's dashboard
From your Project's Dashboard, click the plus sign (+) to open a dropdown menu with a few options. Select New Issue to create an issue in that project:
New issue from the Issue Board
From an Issue Board, create a new issue by clicking on the plus sign (+) on the top of a list. It opens a new issue for that project labeled after its respective list.
New issue via Service Desk
Enable Service Desk to your project and offer email support. By doing so, when your customer sends a new email, a new issue can be created in the appropriate project and followed up from there.
New issue from the group-level Issue Tracker
Head to the Group dashboard and click "Issues" in the sidebar to visit the Issue Tracker for all projects in your Group. Select the project you'd like to add an issue for using the dropdown button at the top-right of the page.
We'll keep track of the project you selected most recently, and use it as the default for your next visit. This should save you a lot of time and clicks, if you mostly create issues for the same project.
