Create 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.
Your project's roadmap pulls together the epics within a single project. You can use it to manage and gain insights about your epics.
To create an epic:
Select + Create Epic in the first column of the roadmap.
Give your epic a name, and click enter.
Your new epic will be added to the bottom of the list.
Or, create a new epic by hovering your mouse between two existing epics. The new epic will land in the middle of the list.
You can also adjust the color of an epic directly on the roadmap. Simply right-click the epic and choose a fresh color.
