Changing the layout of a view

You can view your project as a high-density table, as a kanban board, or as a timeline-style roadmap.

About the table layout

The table layout is a powerful and adaptable spreadsheet comprised of your issues, pull requests, and draft issues with metadata from GitHub and the custom fields you've added to your project. You can group, sort, and filter items, and show or hide fields in your table layouts to suit the needs of everyone on your team. For more information, see "Customizing the table layout."

About the board layout

The board layout spreads your issues, pull requests, and draft issues across customizable columns. You can create a kanban board by setting your column field to a "Status" field or set any other single select or iteration field as the column field. Moving items from column to column will adjust the value of the column field for that item. For more information, see "Customizing the board layout."

About the roadmap layout

Note: Roadmaps for Projects are currently in public beta and subject to change.

The roadmap layout provides a high-level visualization of your project across a configurable timespan, and allows you to drag items to affect their start and target dates. Roadmaps use your custom date fields to position your issues, pull requests, and draft issues on a timeline, allowing you to track work over time and watch progress. For more information, see "Customizing the roadmap layout."
