Is there a way to show the epic label in a User story Swimlane?


In our sprint board we use Swimlanes filtered by User stories to see all the sub-tasks related to the story. Our User stories are grouped with epics. Since we have User stories in a sprint from several different epics we would like to see the epic label in each Swimlane. Is there a way to do that?

Hello @Mervi_Ulvbane

It seems you want to add more information on the swimlane header (story in your case) which is currently not possible.

Please see this ticket

Yes, that's right. More teams seem to have the same need as we do. It would really simplify our work if we can see the epic link directly on the sprint board. Thanks for a quick reply!

Hello, i am in the same situation, i need the epic name on a story swimlane....

Any one find a solution for this? Since (january 2019 until today...).
