An epic is a collection of user stories with a unified goal. Epics are almost always delivered over a set of sprints.

Epics are a helpful way to organize your work and to create a hierarchy. The idea is to break work down into smaller pieces so that large projects can get done and you can deliver value to your customers on a regular basis. Epics help teams break their work down while continuing to work towards a bigger goal.

Create an Epic

Epics are always created at the beginning of a project when only the high-level details are available but not the drill-down specifics. Here is how you can create one:

  1. Navigate to the Epics tab and click New.
  2. Add the relevant information:



    Epic Ref

    Reference number that is automatically populated

    Epic Title

    Give your epic a relevant title for example, Community Page Enhancement.

    Epic Details

    Add more information about the different items that are going on as part of the epic, for example, improve the self-registration page and enhance the look and feel.


    Current status of the epic:

    • Planned
    • In Progress
    • Completed


    Add the release to which your epic is linked.

  3. Click Save.
