How can I enable the option to expand swimlanes on a board?

We would like to use swimlanes on our Kanban board, but the option to expand them is disabled in the board menu.  How do I enable it?

Do you have swimlanes defined? Do you see more than a single swimlane today?  If not go to board setting and swimlanes to set them up.

Hi Jack,

In Board Settings under Swimlanes I have 'Base Swimlanes on Stories' selected from the drop down list.  Where else do I need to enable it?  The stories in the sprint have subtasks, but no swimlanes show currently.

your original post did not convey that you are setting up swim lanes by stories. Indeed if that is your intent then that is all you need to do to get story swim lanes.

Can you provide an image of what you see? Stupid question but, do you have stories created?
