An Epic is a collection of Stories that together make up a larger initiative that your organization is working on. Oftentimes an Epic can be a place for multiple Project teams to work together toward a shared goal.
Editing Epic Information in Table View
Epic due date, State, and Owners can be edited from the Epics page in Table View. Just click on the field you wish to edit and update.
An Epic is likely to be associated with multiple Projects and will of course contain numerous stories that are requested and owned by members of your organization.
You can navigate to the Epics page by clicking "Epics" in the left sidebar.
On the Epics Page you can get the following information:
Epic Workflow State
To Do In Progress Done
Epic ID number
Number of Stories in the Epic
Number of Points in the Epic
When the Epic Started
The number of Stories that have been started/remain unstarted or unscheduled.
Hovering over the box will give you the Story ID and title, owner, number of points, and information about when it was last updated.
Story Type and Project
The background of each card tells you what type of Story it is and the color on the left border tells you which Project it belongs to.
You can click the magnifying glass to view all the stories in the Epic.
When you drop into the Stories page from the Epics page, it creates a permalink that you can view in the navigation bar of your browser and share with other teammates. You can also save this view as a workspace.
Every Epic also contains a Reports tab which allows you to see an Epic's Burndown Chart and Cumulative Flow Diagram (also known as a "burn-up chart"). Note these reports are only visible if work has started on the Epic.
