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.

Reorder or reassign an issue to an epic

Adjust the order of your issues, or assign them to a new epic.

Click and hold the issue’s cell from the far left column on the timeline, then drag and drop the issue wherever you like.

You can also add 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.
