Why do Epics show up in Active Sprint view?

Previously I didn't see Epics on the Active Sprint view (perhaps it was backlog view). I'm seeing the epics on Active Sprint view now, which is kind of cluttering up my board. 

Even the items which I did not change the issue type are showing in Active view (but not backlog).

Wondering if Epics should be showing up there or not?

Hi  @Bar T,

Do you choose Base Swimlanes on Epics in your board configuration?


@Ollie Guan I have a board for Epics (Works as expected) and one with Assignee. The assignee board shows epic tickets in active view. Just wondering if this is expected as I don't recall it from the past. Also saw some posts saying it may be due to changing ticket type at some point.

Hi @Bar T,

Can you use screenshots to explain your problem? Maybe community partners can help you locate problems and propose solutions faster.

If an epic appears on the active sprint board you can remove it by:

- opening up the epic page

- click on the SPRINT status (in epic side bar) and deleting the current sprint that says there.


That should do it. Any tasks pertaining to the epic will still remain in the active sprint
