Github is a great way to host and review code, manage projects, and build software. You can use issues in Github to manage projects and track its progress.

The problem is that collecting all requests in Github will become overwhelming pretty soon. That’s why we built a todo functionality into Replies. Collect and categorize information in Replies first and link it to a Github issue as soon as it’s ready to get done. It keeps ideas, bug reports, etc. which aren’t fully formed yet in Replies and prevents Github from getting stuffed.

After you’ve done it, the link back from Github to Replies helps you to follow up with requesters. You can for example send them preview versions and get instant feedback and validation.

Go to ‘Settings > Integrations > Issue Trackers’ and add Github Repositories you’d like to connect to. You’ll then see ‘Link Issue’ in your todos (see screenshot below). Once linked, Replies will automatically update the milestone and complete/uncomplete the todo based on the linked Github issue.
