New Issues Not Being Auto-Added to Project Board

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi,

I'm trying to use the built-in automation feature on Github projects boards on a Github Projects board.

I've created a number of issues, but they don't seem to be showing up in the backlog column, which is set to the "to-do" automation. It was my understanding that they would be auto-added to that column when created. Am I missing something? This could be a permissions issue, but I don't think so.

Any help is appreciated--Thank you!

Hi @APrioriRainbows,

Just as a first check, when you are creating those new issues, are you also adding them to the Project? You can do so right in the issue, on the righthand side under "Projects". You can find full instructions on adding an issue to a Project board from the side-bar here.

If that doesn't fix the issue for you, please do let me know and we'll troubleshoot further.

That was it! I get why that would not be the default since many people tend to have more projects so you wouldn't know which project to add the issues too even if automation is on. But I guess I assumed since I had one project open and issues were automated to show up on it...they just would. Might be nice to add that as an option in cases like my own. Thanks!

Could we have an option to automatically add an issue to a project when it's created? I'd rather have all of them added by default and then remove them manually if I don't want them there than the other way around.

This would be greatly appreciated, manually shuffling new issues is a real pain and defeats the purpose of keeping everyone in projects instead of micro managing the issues list.

 

Additionally, is there a mailing list or notification we can recieve when this is implemented?

Upvoting this request, and I can't wait for this feature to be implemented! I had hard time moving one issue at a time to the project board.! Also, if they can make it so we are able to multi-select the issues and assign them to a given project, it would be much easier than the way it is currently implemented. The option to auto-assign issue to the repo's project board would also be a great feature to have.

 

Peace! :)

You can provide similar feature as pull request templates. 
Allow us to add a file in git repository with the project name if it's present you can auto-assign it
