Feature Request: Allow to add projects to the issue template

Hi All,

Consider using GitHub Actions to automatically add an issue to your project. Sample workflow below :slight_smile:

name: Auto Assign Issues to Projects

on:
  issues:
    types: [labeled]
env:
  GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}

jobs:
  assign_to_project:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    name: Assign topic to Project
    steps:
    - name: Assign issues with new-topic label to GitHub Project
      uses: srggrs/assign-one-project-github-action@1.2.0
      if: contains(github.event.issue.labels.*.name, 'new-topic')
      with:
        project: 'https://github.com/<project location>'
        column_name: 'No Status'

“Show issues in project board” is one of the most basic requirements for all PM tools.

Suggesting every user should hack this together themselves by configuring GitHub Actions in every repo is not helpful. The OP has very reasonably suggested adding this field to the issue template, which can then be configured globally across an org or locally per template. Not only is this intuitive, it cannot be that much work to extend the existing feature.

Is this at least fixed in the new project features?
