Hey Orangescrummers! It’s my pleasure to share the latest feature updates in Orangescrum project management software. We have released the feature "Epics “is a collection of Stories that represent larger initiatives. We’re pleased to hear that it’s something you’ve been requesting and finally we have released the features to make your project management work smooth and simple.
The overall idea behind releasing this feature is to create an Epic in a separate page with minimum fields to be stored in the same table as tasks are stored. We will restrict certain functionality with epic type tasks.
The epic feature is available for only scrum type projects where the user needs the user access control to create/Edit/View an Epic.
Before deep diving into the feature, let me clarify the basics of Epic.
Epics bridge the gap between strategic initiatives and individual features. Use EPIC to break work down incrementally — define a bigger project, separate it into key epics, then build out features and requirements in more detail. It’s also more convenient to discuss the product at a high level, for example, with stakeholders with no technical background, by looking at it as a set of epics.
What is an Epic?
An epic is one big piece of feature, bigger project, initiative, or just an issue that collects the work of mutual areas.
Otherwise is a collection of Stories that represent larger initiatives. Just like Stories, Epics move through a workflow and can be completed.
One can link all other issues to the epic to keep track of every task that’s related to a project.
In most cases, one can try to cover high-level goals (not detailed solutions) to reflect the (business) value.
