Keep focused on what's important

Consistent labels structure

An Issue Board is based on its project's label structure, therefore, it applies the same descriptive labels to indicate placement on the board. GitLab Issue Boards not just position issue cards in a column, but also allows them to be in multiple boards and still have meaning without the context of a particular board.
