There are two methods, depending on your use.
Either use the 'Helix/Spiral' tool from Features-> Curves to make a helical path and sweep cut using that curve as path. This will create a good looking thread.

For actual engineering drawings, you can use the cosmetic thread option in Insert-> annotations.

I agree. this is reeaaaaly rudimentary and something most of us probably did not need to ask on.

The biggest piece of advice is to get thread profile details from machinery's handbook or from a catalog like McMaster.
