The new GitHub Issues – 09/29 update

Since our last update, we’ve continued to improve the GitHub Issues beta to expand the capabilities of both project tables and boards. Here are some of the recent ships:

🤖 Workflows

Remove the repetition with new automated workflows that help you keep your project up-to-date.

  • Select the workflows you would like to enable in the new workflow screen.
  • Customize the conditionals and methods to fit your flow.

There’s more to come! Keep an eye out for more workflows and our workflow builder coming soon.

🧹 Archive your completed items

Keep the context, but remove the clutter. Now, you can easily archive completed work.

  • Select one or more items – try cmd+a (on MacOS) or ctrl+a (on Windows/Linux) – to select a whole column.
  • Hit e to quickly archive all the selected items, or use the item menu.
  • Easily see which projects an item used to be part of from the issue/pull request page sidebar

✨ Bug fixes & improvements

  • Share with your community: public projects is rolling out to some beta users; see how they are already using it here.
  • Make quick updates, copy and paste is now enabled between cells in the table layout.
  • Export your table with select all by hitting cmd+a (on MacOS) or ctrl+a (on Windows/Linux) and then copying the selected items.
  • Bug fix so meta+click works on the board without needing a card to already be in focus model.
  • We now automatically add a space when you jump to a search bar with a filter already applied so you can immediately add a new filter.
  • Bug fix for a problem where a negative filter over a hidden field resulted in the field values not being loaded.
