Boards in GitLab make it possible to visualize and manage lists of issues which can be defined by one of three ways: Labels, Team members, and Milestones.

milestones, and moving an issue from one list to another, effectively changes which milestone when the issue will be worked on.
The scope of issues that are displayed on a board are filtered either by

Boards support groups of lists that are defined by a combination of
When an issue is moved from one list to another on the board, the board basically does two things:
Board lists also sum up the total "weight" of the issues in each list, as a way to estimate the total work in the list.
Boards can exist at BOTH project and group levels in GitLab.

The order of issues on Board Lists can be arranged by dragging and dropping them and be used to determine the relative priority of the related issues. When an issue is moved vertically on a board, this changes the relative relationship of the issue on ALL boards in GitLab.
If the relevant issues that need to be managed in a board are at the project level, then create the board at the project.
We're investing in boards to add cool features like
