Project boards can be used to create customized workflows to suit your needs, like tracking and prioritizing specific feature work, comprehensive roadmaps, or even release checklists.

You can use a project board template to create a project board with automation already configured. For more information, see "About project boards."

Once you've created your project board, you can add issues, pull requests, and notes to it. For more information, see "Adding issues and pull requests to a project board" and "Adding notes to a project board."

You can also configure workflow automations to keep your project board in sync with the status of issues and pull requests. For more information, see "About automation for project boards."
