How do I create sample data?

I'm following the instructions listed in the Documentation for "Explore a sample project" but I don't see an option to Create sample data. Did the UI Change? Am I looking at an older documentation?

Here are the steps I'm following:

  1. Go to Project>Create project
  2. Click on "Select Classic"
  3. Set Name to "Sample Project" and template to "Scrum" (I don't see an option to create sample data)
  4. Click Create (I don't see an option to create sample data)
  5. New project is created and automatically takes me to an empty Kanban Board titled Active Sprint. But I don't see and option to create sample data here either.

What am I missing?

Hi @Daniel Vaca,

The functionality is available, but it is in a weird place to say the least. From any existing project, navigate to the Boards list and select Create Board from the menu. You will be offered this dialog screen:

Hope this helps! 

Is this now out-dated information?  It doesn't appear as explained here. Thanks.

New as you.

Have founding to this option for an hour, and finally. Hope this helps.
