projects' columns control issue

Hey everyone,

You know that tab in your repo “Projects”, right? Say you create a new project. Create your board with, say, 4 columns [“To Do”, “In progress”, “QA”, “Done”]. Now move those columns arround.

  1. I can move any column to a spot behind “+ Add Column” block. After page refresh that column appears as the first one (the left-most);

  2. Once moved behind “+ Add Column” the column cannot be moved to any other spot until page is refreshed.

  3. Troubles with moving columns to the left. e.g. they do not move to the left :slight_smile: For instance currently I can only move them to behind “+ Add Column” block. ONLY.

Does anyone else experience problems listed above? I hope GH folks will find this post :)

Hi @netikras,

This post was moved to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better. This means you’ll get better engagement on your post, and it keeps our Community organized so users can more easily find information. As you’ll notice, your Topic is now in the How to use Git and GitHub board. 

Additionally, this sounds a bit like a feature request. For now, the best way to submit bug reports or feature requests is via our contact page ( GitHub Staff will see and respond to those requests there.

That said, I do want to share that we are working on a new tool and process for submitting these sorts of things for the Community Forum (and for This is still in the investigative stage, and I don’t have a timeline to share, but we are planning on improving this process.

We also recognize the desire for feature requests to be visible to other users, commented on, and even voted on. These are all things that we are taking into consideration when looking at implementing a new process.

Let me know if you have any other questions or if I can help with anything else.


Hello @nadiajoyce, Thank you for your time. In my humble opinion it is more of a bug rather than a feature request. I see the Projects board as a feature. and ability to create columns there as a feature. And ability to move columns as a feature. I recall finding these features a month ago or so and I loved them as they worked flawlessly. But now it seems a little buggy. If either my concerns are unreasonable or they do indeed drop into a “feature request” category I’ll shut up and forget :slight_smile: But first let me bring in some graphics Here are my concerns. As I said, if this indeed is not a bug - just let me know and I’ll leave in peace :slight_smile: Otherwise… Shall I redirect my concerns via /contacts page?

@netikras Thanks for the additional information. Bugs, as well as feature requests, are best submitted using our contact page: We’re better equipped to handle these reports via that method, and I’d recommend submitting this there.

And that I’ll do :slight_smile: Thank you for your time.
