How do I assign an epic once a story is in a sprint?

I can not drag a item that is in a sprint over to the Epics on the side for assignment?

Is there a way to make the assignment without removing the issue from the sprint, assining it, then putting it back in?

Hi Matthew,

Unfortunately after few tests at my instance, this's not possible, the only way to assign the issues only via the board itself (as you have mentioned).




are you considering changing that behavior to allow assignments of user stories a an epic even if they are already inside a sprint?



+1 for this request. To me an Epic is a container for multiple issues - whatever the status of those issues.

Currently the way to assign issues to Epics is via drag&drop in Greenhopper. But if the issue is "Done" in a prior sprint, there's no way to see it in the planning board in order to drag it.
