Our company uses project management software called Jira. In Jira you can mark one issue so that it 'escalades' another, or 'is escaladed' by another. I think that is something like 'cause', but you can set 'cause' or 'is caused', so they are different.
And I find the meme 'that escalated quickly', and looks like it has a similar meaning to escalade.
Can anyone tell me what escalade means in 'one issue escalades another'? Can I use escalate instead?
