For the best experience with Canned Responses – we recommend installing a dedicated, companion browser extension – for Chrome, Edge or Firefox.
It allows you to search and use templates directly in native Jira fields and on the additional Jira screens and does not require additional payment.

Without browser extension

With browser extension

Canned Responses are located in a separate editor box, above Activity section.

Canned Responses are located directly in the native Jira comment box.

Why is the extension needed?

It is a limitation of Jira Cloud platform. It allows apps (like Canned Responses) to occupy only certain areas within the user interface. Unfortunately, it is not possible to natively add elements directly to fields like comment boxes.

To overcome this limitation and provide our customers with additional value, we've created a browser extension.

Which features are supported by the extension?

With the browser extension, you have pretty much all the same features and even more!

Will my Jira users have to install the extension?

Only if they want. Canned Responses are fully functional without the extension. Nevertheless, we recommend using the extension. 

What browsers are supported?

Currently, Canned Responses extension is available for Chrome, Edge and Firefox browsers. 

Other browsers are not supported due to the lack of necessary API's implementation.

How to install the extension?

The extension is free and available through Chrome Web StoreMicrosoft Edge Store and Firefox Add-ons.
