Thanks for replying @nadiajoyce, I know github isn't a PM tool but bulk moving of issues would solve literally all of my current road blocks. Bonus would be also to have the 'project' selection available in issue templates and PR templates so we can "auto-add to project" ourselves from issue creation by choosing the appropriate template. Also, I thought for a second I could just use the filtering for the project board to handle my milestones, but it looks like milestones aren't availble to be used as filters on the project board so that was a dead-end as well. If there is a better place to submit this idea or are you aware of an issue already posted I can add my support to, please let me know, thanks!

It's a bummer an issue can't be auto added to a specific, or the only existing project, by default and the same problem with pull requests. But, more importantly, is there seriously no way to add/move more than 1 issue at a time to a project? For example, say you use a project board to vizualize the status of issues in a current sprint (milestone). I can easily use filtering on the issues tab to see all the issues I want for a sprint, and even select all those issues using the single checkbox, and then assign ALL issues to a new milestone (sprint), this is good. However, from what I can tell (I really hope I'm wrong) I either have to then manually open every single issue and assign it to a project, OR, use the "add card" function on the project board itself for EACH issue. I understand maybe the project board isn't meant for visualizing sprints, but we really need the basic functionality of BULK moving issues to projects just like you can already with milestones, labels, assignments, etc. Am I wrong? OR, really all a project needs is the SAME FILTERING OPTIONS available to you on the project page just like on the issues page. This way with a single click or two you can transform your project board into a global backlog, sprint backlog, sprint, etc and not have to move an issue INTO a project at all. This is where we are going to have to end up paying for a utlity like ZenHub which offers this exact functionality already.
