- Projects, the all-new projects experience, is now available. For more information about Projects, see "About Projects" and for information about migrating your classic project, see "Migrating from projects (classic)."
- You can only create a new classic project board for an organization or user that already has at least one classic project board. You cannot create new classic projects for repositories. If you're unable to create a classic project board, create a project instead.
You can add issue or pull request cards to your classic project by:
- Dragging cards from the Triage section in the sidebar.
- Typing the issue or pull request URL in a card.
- Searching for issues or pull requests in the classic project search sidebar.
You can put a maximum of 2,500 cards into each project column. If a column has reached the maximum number of cards, no cards can be moved into that column.
Note: You can also add notes to your project board to serve as task reminders, references to issues and pull requests from any repository on GitHub, or to add related information to your classic project. For more information, see "Adding notes to a project (classic)."
You can view and make lightweight edits to issues and pull requests within your classic project by clicking on the issue or pull request's title.
You can link up to twenty-five repositories to your organization or user-owned classic project. Linking repositories makes it easier to add issues and pull requests from those repositories to your classic project using Add cards or from the issue or pull requests sidebar. When you search for issues and pull requests to add to your classic project, the search automatically scopes to your linked repositories. You can remove these qualifiers to search within all organization repositories. For more information, see "Linking a repository to a project (classic)."
Adding issues and pull requests to a classic project
Navigate to the classic project where you want to add issues and pull requests.
In your classic project, click Add cards.
Search for issues and pull requests to add to your classic project using search qualifiers such as
is:issue is:open. For more information on search qualifiers you can use, see "Searching issues and pull requests."
- You can also add an issue or pull request by typing the URL in a card.
- If you're working on a specific feature, you can apply a label to each related issue or pull request for that feature, and then easily add cards to your classic project by searching for the label name. For more information, see "Managing labels."
From the filtered list of issues and pull requests, drag the card you'd like to add to your classic project and drop it in the correct column. Alternatively, you can move cards using keyboard shortcuts. For more information about keyboard shortcuts, see "Project boards" in "Keyboard shortcuts."
Tip: You can drag and drop or use keyboard shortcuts to reorder cards and move them between columns. For more information about keyboard shortcuts, see "Project boards" in "Keyboard shortcuts."
