Lost Epic Children during import

To move a Next Gen project to a Classic you must export your data and then import it into a new Classic project. I have done this multiple times today and each time am unsuccessful on some level. I've reached my breaking point and am reaching out for help. During my import I am losing all the children that are associated to an Epic. I have ensured the fields are visible on the new board and I have named and mapped them in the CSV and the fields during import. However, every time I import I lose the parent/child association between an Epic and its tasks.

Hi @Rachael Garbee have you tried moving issues rather than doing import/export? We have done work in preserving epic links when moving issues. So curious to know if it works for you. Thanks.

I'm afraid to use the move functionality b/c if information is lost during the move I cannot get it back. Do you have thoughts on that?
