Recently my team upgraded to the next gen version of Jira's Scrum boards. In the old version we would have Stories with Sub Tasks attached to them. The Sub Tasks themselves would be visible as separate cards within the Scrum board so they could be individually picked up and visually tracked throughout their development process. With this new board Stories now have `Child Issues` which seemed to be a 1:1 comparison with what a Sub Task used to be. The problem though is that Child Issues don't visually appear as their own cards on the Scrum board making it difficult to track which Child Issue's are being worked on and what stage they are in. Is there a way to do this? It's not uncommon for multiple developers to be working on the same story and thus would need to have the child issues as separate cards to keep in their swim lanes.
Thanks for your reply! The issue I have with that is it globally changes the board for all users. Also it changes the swim lanes to be story based and thus my tickets could theoretically be scattered around the board. It would be nice to keep the swim lane context by user and still be able to see sub tasks within them to keep the organization by user. Is this possible?
