What is the epic burndown report?

This page applies to company-managed projects only.

Learn more about the difference between company-managed and team-managed projects.

Please note that epics can be renamed. The information in this article is relevant, regardless of what epics are called in your instance.

The Epic Burndown report shows you how your team is progressing against the work for an epic. An epic is a large user story that can be broken down into a number of smaller stories. The report will show data based on the estimation statistic that your board is using.

Here are some of the ways that you could use an Epic Burndown report:

  • See how quickly your team is working through the epic,

  • See how work added and removed during the sprint has affected your team's overall progress, and

  • Predict how many sprints it will take to complete the work for an epic, based on past sprints and changes during the sprints.

If you have used the Epic Report before, you will notice some similarities. However, the Epic Burndown is optimized for scrum teams that work in sprints — which makes tracking much easier.
