Add epis column to a "List" when working with Business project / Project management


I want to be able to see which Epic a task is connected to when I'm working with a project management plan and the new "Lists" feature. 

As you see in the image, there are 4 issues. SALES-17 and 20 are two epics and the issues below the epics (sales-19 and 21) are each connected to the above epics. 

Is it possible to add "EPIC" as a column or similar to see which epic is parent to an issue within the new list feature and the board??

We use Jira Software every day for our development projects and in the backlog there we can easily see with epic the issues are connected to. 

Is this even possible with the new "project management" templates that have "Lists"

Hi Jon - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

That field type is not available yet for Jira Work Management projects. But they will be working on that. I am not aware of a timeline. 

However, you can email them at this address to request they add the Epic Link field to the Lists:

Hi @Jon Berglund,

I don't believe that this is currently possible in the List view; however, you may want try JXL: It provides a spreadsheet/list view on issues of all project types and allows adding all standard Jira and Jira Software fields (as well as all custom fields).

This is how it looks like in JXL (you can see that you can also sort and filter by epic links):


Hi @Jon Berglund

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Let me ass just a few words about BIgPicture/BigGantt. The plugin supports the automatic creation of a no-limited number of WBS levels. Task Structure can be created based on both build-in task attributes (e.g., Epic link, Component, Version, Sprint) as well as Jira links.

Moreover, thanks to Quick Filters, you will easily find a given epic(s) and its children or display only selected issue types. The plugin not only visualizes Jira data but also helps to plan, manage and track the projects.
