We're using Kanban boards to organize our issues in a Next-Gen project. It's a great tool to visualize and organize our tasks. We typically group the tasks by Epic.
The problem we have is that any Epic that does not yet have any issues is not shown on the board. This seems really odd, as one of the main functions of the board is to move them between Epics or columns. But if the Epics don't show up, I can't add a task to them.
