Epics not showing up in software scrum project board

I started a new project to track go-to-market tasks. We are in Jira in the cloud.

If I set the issues as tasks, they cannot have dates set against them so we can use the roadmap as a gantt chart, but they do show up in the sprint board.

If I set the issues as epics, we can set dates for them and use the roadmap, but they do not show up in the sprint board.

Is there a way to make both occur? I want all the issues in the sprint to show up in the roadmap and in the sprint board.

Hi @Sigrid Schoepel 

Things to try depend upon a couple of things:

  1. How is your team using epics and tasks?
  2. Are you using a Classic or Next-Gen project?

Regarding (1): Teams often use epics to manage a large, valuable chunk of work, typically composed of tasks (or user stories).  Your team seems not to be making that distinction, so I am unclear why you are using a roadmap, which also often is used for larger chunks of work and time-frames.  If they are interchangeable for your team, maybe just use epics, and...

Regarding (2): If you are using a Classic project, you can edit the filter.  (This ability will eventually be available for Next-Gen, according to Atlassian's own roadmap.)  Until then, with a Classic project and board you could disable the epic panel and only use/show epics on the board.  Then you would have sprints with epics and a roadmap showing them also.  I am uncertain how much this will impact the other reports (burn, velocity, etc.) so you may want to experiment with a test project.

Best regards,
