If I go in and copy or move an issue there is no indication that I am the person who did the action.

  • Activity - says the person who created the original issue did the move/copy.
  • There is no note on the issue stating I copied or moved it from issue #
  • The author is still the original person.

I can see the author staying the same but the Activity must state that who actually made the change and I would like to see a note automatically added that it was moved or copied.

This is a major issue when trying to track down who did what and why.
