Running JIRA  V7.1.1, with Portfolio V2.2.2. Soon moving to JIRA 8 and portfolio 3.9.

In our project, we've defined several epics with stories. Those stories have a number of sub-tasks, each with effort estimate & assigned to people. Our goal is to get portfolio running to visualize the planning and dependencies (gantt-chart style). I run into the following:

1. Stories are shown in the schedule, but the sub-tasks are not. We need that granularity.  Can that be turned on now? Will it be possible in Portfolio V3.9?
   Note that luckily, the sub-tasks are shown in the 'scope' view. Now to see them in the schedule view!

2. Some subtasks can be done concurrently, while others depend on each other. Does it make sense to use the 'dependency' of issues called 'blocked by'?  This seems intuitive, but Portfolio states a cyclic dependency error when I create such a relation between two subtasks.

I don't know the second part. But for the first part, yes you can visualize including subtask:

Thanks  Deniz, unfortunately that is 'scope', not schedule.
