### Request enhancements/new features

### Report inaccurate issue information
If you find an issue that have a badly formatted title and/or description, bad language/grammar and/or wrong labels it's important to let the issue author or maintainers know so it can be fixed. See [good practices](#good-practices) regarding basic information for issues below.
### Request closing of issues
The Grafana project have a lot of open issues and the main goal is to only have issues open if their still relevant. If you find an issue that you think already have been resolved or no longer is relevant please report by adding a comment and explain why you think it should be closed including related issues (`#<issue number>`), if applicable, and optionally mention one of the maintainers.
### Investigate issues
See [investigation of issues](#investigation-of-issues).
### Vote on enhancements/bugs
Helping the Grafana project to know which issues are most important by users and the community is crucial for the success of the project. Read more about [prioritizing issues](#4-prioritization-of-issues) for details about how issues are being prioritized. The Grafana project use GitGub issues and reactions for collecting votes on enhancement and bugs.
**Please don't add `+1` issue comments or similar since that will notify everyone that have subscribed to an issue and it doesn't add any useful update, rather it creates a bad habit.**
If you want to show your interest or importance of an issue, please use [GitHub's reactions](https://help.github.com/en/articles/about-conversations-on-github#reacting-to-ideas-in-comments).
### Report duplicates
If you find two issues describing the same bug/enhancement/feature please add a comment in one of the issue and explain which issues (`#<issue number>`) you think is a duplicate of another issue (`#<issue number>`).
### Suggest ideas for resolving bugs/enhancements
Related to how [issues are being prioritized](#4-prioritization-of-issues) it's important to help anyone that's interested in contributing code for resolving a bug or enhancement. This can be anything from getting started and setup the development environment to reference code and files where changes probably needs to be made and/or suggest ideas on how enhancements may function/be implemented.
Please read about how [help from the community](#5-requesting-help-from-the-community) may be requested when issues being triaged.
## 1. Find uncategorized issues
To get started with issue triage and finding issues that haven't been triaged you have two alternatives.
# Triage issues
Triage helps ensure that issues resolve quickly by:
- Ensuring the issue's intent and purpose is conveyed precisely. This is necessary because it can be difficult for an issue to explain how an end user experiences a problem and what actions they took.
- Giving a contributor the information they need before they commit to resolving an issue.
- Lowering the issue count by preventing duplicate issues.
- Streamlining the development process by preventing duplicate discussions.
This document gives you some ideas on what you can do to help. For more information, read more about [how the core Grafana team triage issues](/ISSUE_TRIAGE.md).
## Improve issues
Improve issues by suggesting improvements to the title and description. If you think an issue has formatting issues, bad language, or grammatical errors, post a comment to let the author and maintainers know.
## Report resolved issues
If you think an issue has been resolved, or is no longer relevant, suggest us to close it. Add a comment on the issue, where you explain the reason it should be closed. Make sure to include any related issues and pull requests.
## Investigate issues
Investigate issues that we haven't been able to reproduce yet. In some cases, there are many combinations of panels, dashboards, and data sources that make it difficult for us to reproduce certain issues. Help us by adding more information.
## Vote on issues
Use [GitHub reactions](https://help.github.com/en/articles/about-conversations-on-github#reacting-to-ideas-in-comments) to let us know what's important to you. Vote on bugs if you've experienced the same problem. **Don't vote, or react, by commenting on the issue.**
Read more about [how we prioritize issues](https://github.com/grafana/grafana/blob/master/ISSUE_TRIAGE.md#4-prioritization-of-issues).
## Report duplicates
If you find two issues that describe the same thing, add a comment in one of the issues, with a reference (`#<issue number>`) to the other. Explain why you think the issue is duplicated.
