Issue types are the templates used to define the data, permission and notification requirements for the different types of issue that your system is handling. This could be anything from Change Control, to Accidents and Incidents or Non-Conformance handling.
Each type consists of the key details, associated workflow, settings, permissions, notifications and any custom fields that your form or process require.
