Add issues to epics on the roadmap
Are you on the right help page?
The following information only applies to classic projects.
To check which project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:
If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project. Check out our next-gen project documentation.
If you don’t, you're in a classic project.
There are a few ways to add different issues to your epics.
On the roadmap
To add an issue, hover over an epic and click Add a child issue.
Choose which issue type you’d like to create, then tap enter.
On the issue details
Click the epic to see more details:
Add a child issue: Use the quick-add button to add the first child issue to your epic.
Add more issues: Once you have one child issue, you can use the above the list to add more.
List of all issues in the epic: View and open all of the child issues in the epic.
Add or change an issue's epic
You can add existing issues to epics, change the epic an issue belongs to, or remove issues from epics from the issue view, board, or backlog. See Manage epics in a kanban project or Manage epics in a scrum project to learn how.
