Vote for Issues

Votes are one way to measure the popularity of an issue. When you add a vote to an issue, you express your personal support.

Voting in YouTrack is subject to the following limitations:

  • You can't vote for issues that you reported yourself.

  • You can only cast one vote for each issue.

To vote for an issue:

  1. Open the issue that you want to vote for in quick view or single issue view.

  2. Click the Vote for issue icon in the upper-right corner of the issue.

    Vote for issue in single issue view.

You can remove your vote at any time by clicking the Vote icon a second time or with the command unvote.

To vote for an issue:

  • From the Issues list, click the Vote for the issue icon in the lower-right corner of the issue. In compact view and tree view, expand the issue to show this control.

Get Notifications for Issues that You Voted For

Your profile includes an option to add the Star tag to issues automatically when you vote for an issue. This lets you receive automatic updates following the same rules that apply to your subscription for the Star tag.

For more information, see Subscribe to Updates for the Issues You Watch.

Sort Issues by Votes

If you want to gauge the relative popularity of an issue, you can sort any list of issues by votes. Just add the following sort parameter to the search query:

sort by: Votes

The search results are sorted by the number of votes in descending order.

The number of votes isn't available as an option for the columns in the list. To display the current number of votes without leaving the list, open the issue in quick view.
