Automation Suggestions for Github Projects: In progress, Awaiting review


My team at our company (Vathes) love the Projects feature with our open-source project, DataJoint!
We love it so much that we can’t help but think of better ways to improve it. Specifically to add to the existing automation capabilities.

Currently, the following is the available workflow (that we use):

  • To do (utilized)
          - On new Issue
  • In progress (not utilized but intend to)
  • Done (utilized)
           - On Issue close. Excellent that this works with PR merge automation that closes Issue if done against default branch!

We have the following requests and we are willing to help build or test any potential candidate:

  • In progress
           - On Issue assigned
  • Awaiting review
            - On new PR opened with reference to Issue

Also, are there any ways to customize/extend the Projects Automation to include our own logic?
Just in case we feel up to task of implementing the above ourselves in the meantime. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the consideration.
