"New issue" button in project view

The way my team uses the Project view, we often need to add new issues to a project. (I know this is not the way Agile projects are supposed to work, but by their nature, our projects require this workflow.) Currently, I need to train my colleagues (many of whom are non-technical) to:

* go the issue tab or to an existing issue

* click “new issue”

* make sure the issue is linked to the project to which we want to add it

* save and go back to the project view

It might be better to have a “new issue” button directly in the project view, and for issues added that way, the project would be prepopulated and upon saving we’d return to the project view.

Hi @alberto56,

Thanks for this feedback! We’re always working to improve GitHub and the GitHub Community Forum, and we consider every suggestion we receive. I’ve logged your feature request in our internal feature request list. Though I can’t guarantee anything or share a timeline for this, I can tell you that it’s been shared with the appropriate teams for consideration.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.


I’m also looking forward to this. I will even add that this should be supported in organization projects too, and when creating a new issue from the project view, there should be an option to choose which repo to create the issue in, getting the list probably from the linked repositories.
