Our teams currently organize items into epics, and prefer all items to be in epics. Over time, this forces some items into epics which don't require one, but are there simply for the organizational/metadata/viewing ability the epic affords it.
Components seem to solve that problem by providing a way to place all jira items into containers that are non-closing and meant to represent themes or similar work.
When viewing the backlog or the active sprint board, it's nice and easy to see epics, they're displayed inline, they're color coded. Components however are relegated to simply being grey text displayed on a new line, making your beautiful backlog bloated and thick.
Does anyone else use components for this and wish they could more easily see the component displayed, similar to how epics are displayed. Specifically when viewing them in backlog view, and active sprint view?
