Board real-time updates
- Refresh the issue board dynamically.
- Suppose a user has a browser tab open with an issue board displayed. Any changes to the board should be dynamically refreshed. Need UX and development input and a lot more discussion to to know how we should slice and dice this goal into multiple issues.
Why do we need this?
- People expect modern web apps to be dynamic and refresh automatically. Gmail pioneered this and popularized this notion and the modern frameworks support this. So GitLab should be dynamically refreshed in the places that make sense to the user.
- It makes total sense in the board feature. In a typical use case, a user has a browser tab open all the day. There may be a tab open in a dedicated monitor in the office for one user, or maybe a big wall monitor where the board is open. (Think about how users have whiteboards with stickies. This is one of those use cases.) Users expect that page to be refreshed automatically as people work and make changes to issues all day.
