Working with epic report

Epic is a feature or functionality usually completed over a span of multiple sprints. From a reporting perspective, we need to know how a particular feature was completed over the sprints, how much effort was required for the feature to be completed, and what all issues were a part of the Epic.

To access the epic report, go to your team board, click on the Report link and select Epic Report from the dropdown. From the list of currently active or open Epics, select the relevant Epic on which you want to generate the report.

As shown in the preceding screenshot, for a particular Epic, the Epic report shows you the details of the total Story points, the total Story points completed in each sprint, and remaining unfinished issues.

The status report also shows you the list of completed issues for the selected Epic.
