To add multiple issues to a dependency at once, reference all related issues at the same time.

In the above example, we used the keyword in the issue's description:

  • blocks #37, blocks #45, blocks #47

The following wording will NOT work:

  • blocks #37, #45, #47

By doing this, issues number 37, 45, 47 will be added to the dependency and display beneath issue #48 as the blockers. 

Issue #48 will also display under each of those cards as the blocking issue.

Be sure to include the "#" in front of each number, or the connection won't be picked up.

When you close an issue that's blocking another, you'll see a completed check mark ✅ on the issue that was blocked, indicating that it is no longer blocked.
