Issues

Queries

GitHub issue task repositories support creating queries that filter by the following fields:

  • State (open or closed)
  • Milestones
  • Mentions
  • Assignee
  • Labels

Note that when multiple filters are used in the same query the returned issues match all of the filters.

Gists

Creating

Gists can be created by selecting text in a editor or files in an explorer and selecting the Create Gist context menu. A Gist will be created in a background job and a notification popup will display after the Gist has been created.

Queries

Gist queries only support filtering by a specified GitHub user name.

Editing

The task editor for Gists supports the following:

  • Updating the description
  • Commenting
  • Opening the files in a gist
