Today's changelog brings you the general availability (GA) of organization project templates.
We've shipped exciting updates that allow you to quickly create, share, and use project templates for your organizations, making it easy to get started with a new project and share inspiration and best practices with others.
You can create a project template a few different ways:
New templatefrom the "Templates" section found in your organization, team, or repository "Projects" pages
- Converting a project to a template by toggling
Make templatefrom the project settings page
- Making a copy of an existing project or project template
Once you set up your project template, any views, fields, workflows, insights, and draft items will be included when using the template or making a copy of it.
With a growing number of project templates within an organization, organization administrators can designate a set of recommended templates from the organization settings page. These will appear as "Recommended" templates when creating a new project, so they are surfaced more prominently to help guide you in the right direction when getting started.
When you create a new project, you'll notice an improved experience to browse and search across all available templates and choose one to quickly get started. You will find a new set of "Featured" templates provided by GitHub to help you get started depending on your use case for a project, such as the "Team planning" or "Feature release" templates, as well as separate sections for templates from your organization and starting from scratch.
