Description

I would like to add an "Assign to me"[1] link next to the "Assignee" field which can be used to set the current user as assignee. There are a lot of cases when I edit an issue and I want to assign the issue to me. Using this shortcut, we save one click without any side effect.

1 I'm using this feature in GitLab and from there the idea.

I often assign people to myself.
Many people will be pleased if the work is done with just one click.

Thanks for posting it. I didn't know that they changed the position of the link in the lastest versions (I'm using 10.4.3), but I still prefer to have it right after the dropdown.

Redmine has "<< me >>" option in the dropdown. It is enough for me. Do users really need "Assign to me" link as well?

I would prefer "Assign to me" as button outside of edit mode. Right now you need 4 clicks to assign issue to yourself. This patch reduces this to 3 click, which is still quite a lot for such simple change. Quite often the only change you want to make is to assign issue to yourself, and having one-click button for this would be quite useful. It would be even better if you could combine it with status change, for example "Start" button which will assign issue to user and change issue status to "in progress".
