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?
