Filter Issues on board by Epic (Drop down menu)


Hi, I've been using Jira with an organization. On their board I can filter issue by Epic via a drop down menu.

Please see attached screen shot:

I created my own Jira account to manage my own projects. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to replicate this same functionality. On my board I see "Only my issues", and "Recently updated".

See second screenshot:

Hi Carlos - It is always better to create a new question instead of adding one to an existing posting because the only ones who will see it are the ones on the post. 

That being said - can you be more specific in what you are wanting to do? 

Is there any way to get the filter option on a company-managed project as well?

Switching back to Team-managed later seems not possible.
