You can configure automatic workflows to keep the status of project board cards in sync with the associated issues and pull requests.
To set up automatic workflows for a repository project board, you must have write access to the repository. Organization owners and members can configure automatic workflows on an organization-wide project board.
You can automate actions based on triggering events for project board columns. This eliminates some of the manual tasks in managing a project board. For example, you can configure a "To do" column, where any new issues or pull requests you add to a project board are automatically moved to the configured column. For more information, see "Configuring automation for project boards."
Project board automation can also help teams develop a shared understanding of a project board's purpose and the team's development process by creating a standard workflow for certain actions.
