How do I remove an Epic from Planning Board?

I closed an epic and all related stories and the epic is still showing on the Planning Board. In the past Closed Epics were removed from the Planning Board. What do I do to remove the Closed Epic?

Hi Emily,

When you say you closed an Epic, you mean that you have Marked the Epic as Done? If you don't mark an Epic as Done, it will still show in the Epic Panel of the board.

If you have marked the Epic as Done then please create a support case with us at so we can further investigate it.



The Status of the Epic is Closed. The resolution is Done. My co-worker opened a Support Case.
