Pull request template similar to issue templates


my question is simple and I have seen people asking it in the past [without many answers unfortunately]: when following this guide, it seems to suggest that, if I create multiple templates under the .github/PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE/ folder, it will create multiple corresponding templates when opening a new PR from the website. This is expected to be an exact match with the corresponding .github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE/* folder and with how issue templates are created.That is, when I create multiple files in .github/PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE/, I expect to see something similar to this:

However, this does not happen. Why is that? Is it a bug? How can I fix it?




Unfortunately, there isn’t similar support for multiple pull request templates as there are for multiple issue templates. As it states in the help documentation:

You can create a PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE/ subdirectory in any of the supported folders to contain multiple pull request templates, and use the template query parameter to specify the template that will fill the pull request body. For more information, see “About automation for issues and pull requests with query parameters.”

I hope that helps!

Can we request that multiple pull request templates are updated to have the same functionality as issue templates? This is really helpful for folks who need to manage PRs from the public and team members.

Not sure if this is the right forum for this ask. If not, please let me know where to submit that feedback!
