The Agile Board - Plan mode is great for short term planning (e.g. a couple of sprints ahead).
However, we would also like to use it for medium term planning (e.g. predicting the rough scope for a whole, several month release)
The problem is that we typically don't have a story level decomposition that far ahead; we only have the Epic issues (though with story points). So far, I've not found a way to include the Epic issues on the planning board directly. Is this possible? Is there another approach that would work?
I believe that this is currently not possible in JIRA. Hence, the Epic panel was introduced.
However, I came across to a feature request describing the functionality that you need. For your reference, please see https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-6945.
I would suggest that you do the following on the ticket:
* Vote, so that it will receive more attention
* Watch it, so that you will receive any and all updates
* Comment, and give your opinion on the matter
Hope it helps.
Thanks for the reply Monique.
The issue link did indeed describe what I am looking for. Unfortunately it was marked as 'Resolved' with a 'No plans to implement' comment so nobody is able to vote for it anymore.
I would be interested to hear the rationale for not implementing it or a suggested workaround.
