I am trying out github projects for the first time. I have a project with "Automated kanban with reviews" setup. I am creating issues in the "To Do" lane, and when I want to start working on an issue I move it to the "In Progress" lane. When creating a pull request for that issue is there a way to automatically link the pull request to that issue without creating another issue in the board?
From what I understand the only way to manage this is to add something like "resolves #5" in the decription to automatically close the pre-existing issue in the board when the pull request is closed. This workflow seems very strange since, I have to managed multiple issues.
Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if this is the way it is intended workflow.
If I am understanding correctly, I think you would need to reference the issue without using the resolve, close, fix keywords. Use the `#5` or whatever the issue number.
Let me know if this accomplishes what you want to achieve.

Same here. In waffle.io the PR's and issues are linked together when you add something like "Fixes #5" in the PR description. It really helps to keep things organized.
