How do you add a story to an epic?

I can see how to  create a story and I can see how to create an epic but I cannot figure out how to add the stories into epics.  I see YouTube  videos that show the ability to  drag and drop stories into epics on the backlog page but I cannot figure out how to do this.

Hi @Mark Ciliberti - While adding a story to an Epic seems like a fundamental action we would perform, a lot of folks have had difficulty in the past and have approached this forum for answers. I would like to add a couple of links that have helped in the past and see if following the step-by-step approach they detail here helps you. Some of these also bring the context of old vs new issue view.

If none of the approaches above help, please respond back and we can see what else we can do to help you further. 



Hi Kalyani.

None of the links helped to add an already created Story as a Child issue in an Epic.
