  2. Click 'Install'.

3. Choose your organization (If you don’t see your organization, you don’t have owner-level permissions. Send this article to somebody who does so they can complete this step).

4. Click 'All repositories' (recommended).

  1. Or, choose 'Only select repositories' to add just this repository now (you'll have to repeat this step for all new repositories later).

  1. Click 'Install'.

  2. Refresh any murals you have open. Now you and members of your GitHub organization can create GitHub issues from sticky notes and text boxes in murals by following part two.

*Specifications: No access to code, only read and write access to issues and metadata

PART TWO (only after part one is completed)

  1. Select the sticky notes and/or textboxes you want to send.

  2. Right-click, and choose 'Send to GitHub'.

3. In the popup that appears, click 'Authorize tactivos'.

4. Use the dropdowns to choose the organization and repository you want to send the issues to.

5. Search for any labels you’d like to add (optional). If you want to use a new label, create it in GitHub first, then reload the mural.

6. Click 'Send to GitHub'.

7. Click the link in the black dialog to see all of the issues you just created in GitHub. You can also click the tag to go to that specific issue in GitHub.


Who is the GitHub organization owner of my repository?

  1. Sign in to github.com

  2. In the top right corner of GitHub, click your profile photo, then click Your profile.

3. On the left side of your profile page, under 'Organizations', click the icon for your organization.

4. Below the name of the organization, click on the 'People' tab

5. On the right side of the page, click the dropdown menu that says 'Role' and select 'Owners'

6. You will see a list of the owners of your GitHub organization, any of whom will be able to complete Part One.

Where is the repository I need?

If you can’t find the repository you’re looking for, it’s possible that your organization hasn’t added it yet. A GitHub organization owner should complete Part One and give access to the repository you’re looking for.

Now you're ready to manage your content across both platforms!
