Hi John - Welcome to the Community!
Certainly, you can do that. Just go to Board Settings, then choose Swimlanes.
Then modify the JQL for the Swimlane for Epics to include something like issuetype = Epic and status != Done
Let me know if you have problems with it.
That is what I did before but it hides both done and not done epics for some reason! I created a new epic just to try it and it is still showing all epics and when I click on the "Hide Done Epics" query I get none of them. Maybe because of their status? I still do not understand how to change the status of the Epic. I went to Epic panel on the backlog and clicked marked as done.
So sorry to bother you but really appreciate the help :)
Sure. So when I go to Board Settings and I put the query you sent I placed it in Quick Filters. Those are the ones that I sent you previously with teh addition to the one you sent me for the closed epics.
The only thing I'm not finding is the Epic Status. I already went to check the Epic Panel on board settings so I could see in the backlog easier the Epics. From there I put marked as done to some and those do not appear in the backlog but still appear in the swimlanes. Some of them do not have all issues completed does that affect?
I have tried everything and it does not seem to work. I "marked as done" epics so as to not have them in the Kanban view but I left one not completed. When I put "Hide all done epics" all of them disappear! Please help! I'm filtering by Swimlanes.
