How to select GitHub Issues for estimation

When you have started a Sprint Poker meeting, Parabol will prompt you to import stories from a variety of sources, including GitHub.

If you have not yet set up the GitHub integration you will see this image:

To connect your account, simply click “Import stories from GitHub” to begin the authentication process. 

Once your GitHub account is connected, you will have the option to select the issues you wish to import for estimation. You can use any GitHub search syntax for this. 

This process can be done asynchronously before you begin the meeting with your team.

Selected issues will populate on the left hand navigation, creating your meeting agenda.
