Tracking progress on your project (classic)

You can see the overall progress of your classic project in a progress bar.


  • Projects, the all-new projects experience, is now available. For more information about Projects, see "About Projects."
  • You can only create a new classic project board for an organization, repository, or user that already has at least one classic project board. If you're unable to create a classic project board, create a project instead.

If progress tracking is enabled, a progress bar appears above the classic project, on the project listing page, in the issue sidebar, and in references to the project on other classic projects.

  1. Navigate to the classic project where you want to enable or disable project progress tracking.

  2. On the top-right side of the classic project, click Menu.

  3. Click , then click Edit.
