Is there a way to Show sub-tasks (grouped under parent story) on Next Gen Scrum boards

Recently got sub-tasks enabled on the cloud version for our Next Gen Projects but I am not able to see the sub-tasks (under the parent) on the scrum board. I did spent sometime trying different things but no luck. 

If anyone has done this on Next Gen projects scrum board - please do let me know how this can be achieved!!




Here is a screenshot of what I would like to see -JSM-ActiveSprints-SwimlanesStoriesSetting.png

Hi Sunil,

To get the desired layout on the next-gen board go to the active sprint, use the Group By option set it to Sub task, and this will stack the Sub-tasks and Stories like the following Screenshot:

And for a referance point on this new feature the documentation can be seen here:

Thank you. I am not sure why it didnt show this way earlier,I am sure I did try that option!! Anyways , all is well now, that its working fine.

Hi Guys,

It's working fine but when i try to add Filter on Epic then board is empty. Is it a limitation of next gen?

Hi @Marek Błauciak ,

Thanks for pointing that out,  I would expect that the story and sub-tasks of that story would be displayed where the story used in the Group by swim-lane is linked to the Parent Epic selected for the filter.  

I created the following Bug report to follow up to track this behavior, add yourself as a watcher if you would like to receive status updates on the Bug:

Hi, this option for me as admin is available. Great. It is not available however for non-admin team members. How do I enable this for non-admin? Cheers

Same here, the admins can see the Group By filter, but this is not available for non-admin team members. Is there a setting that can make sub-tasks available to all on the board?

I have the same issue, Admins see it but not the Members, let alone the Viewers. This needs to be fixed. Our team doesn't have an easy way to look at subtasks on the board at the moment.

Yes, this should absolutely be a setting for the individual user, and not a project setting. Being able to toggle different views independently of others is super cool! Not being able to toggle individually makes next gen almost useless!
