Is it possible to hide the Epics Panel from a Scrum board?

Alex Christensen Community Champion Apr 01, 2015

We're getting a lot of good use out of JIRA Agile, but we don't need to use Epics in our current Scrum board. Is it possible to remove the Epics Panel from Plan Mode on the Scrum board? We'd like to remove it to avoid confusion, if possible.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Alex,

You cannot remove it, but you can hide the Epic Panel and it will only be shown on the left side of the screen:

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your answer, Clarissa. We were hoping it was possible to remove the option entirely from even how it's seen in your screenshot - we wanted to prevent our end-users being confused by a panel that doesn't really apply to them or their work. Regardless, thanks for your time and answer!
