Is there anyway I can make Tasks under Stories in Advanced Hierarchy

The problem is with Epic; I want Tasks Under Stories Under Epics... I can either move Stories and Tasks above Epic or both Tasks and Stories remain at the same level.

HI @Prashanth Kannan are you able to use sub-tasks rather than tasks under the Stories? 

In other words have the hierarchy set up like:  Epic > Story/Task > Sub-Task? 

Yeah I am able to do that. But I don't want to use sub-tasks... They can't move around in a sprint.


I want stories to last beyond sprints (don't want to move them around) and only Tasks around sprints

Thanks @Prashanth Kannan that totally makes sense!  I agree, sub-tasks in a sprint are a pain :) 

Fwiw I'm also watching this issue - its been open for a while but semi-related to this but is about sub-tasks of sub-tasks (still hierarchy related) -

This also has an additional approximately 15 related issues linked to it and you might be able to find the one that best fits this scenario in order to vote/watch. 

Good luck and I hope you find an answer that works for you!

Thank you! Least they could do is allow us to move the Epic... that would solve all my problems

Tasks and stories are indeed equal from a hierarchy perspective. That cannot be changed.
