What Are Issues in GitLab?

An issue is a topic of public concern, usually a controversial one. Politicians and other public figures often talk about “the issues.” A person can also have an issue, as in the phrase, “He has some real issues.”

Some of the most pressing global issues include environmental pollution, climate change, loss of biodiversity, and unsustainable practices for extracting and using natural resources. These issues can affect the quality of life for millions of people, including children, for generations to come.

Several issues can impact children, including poverty, climate change, and violence. Often, these issues are interconnected. For example, violence is often a result of economic stress, and can be targeted at particular groups like women and LGBTQ+ individuals.

Subjectivity also comes into play when determining whether a situation is a social issue. For example, some people see cohabitating before marriage as a serious social issue, while others consider it a normal lifestyle choice.

In addition to being a critical part of project management, GitLab issues are also great for communicating with your team and with outside collaborators. They’re used for sharing feature proposals, questions, support requests, and bug reports. With features such as labels and issue boards, you can customize your workflow and prioritize the work that’s most important to you.
