Tracking high level work with epics

Trello does not have a built-in support for epics, but you can use our free Epic Cards Power-Up to see related cards, and track progress of your work in a higher level. To get started, install the Power-Up to your board.

Once you have the Power-Up installed, and you’ve created some epics, that data will become available on your dashboard. First make sure that the Epics screen is enabled in the Dashboard settings:

Once you have the Power-Up enabled in your Trello board, and the Epics screen enabled on your Screenful dashboard, you can see a high level overview of all of your epics by navigating to the Epics screen in your dashboard:

The UI is divided in three columns. The name of the epic is displayed on the left column. These are the epics you’ve created in your Trello board via the Epic Cards Power-Up. The middle column shows progress of an epic as a progress bar. The percentage is the number of tasks or points completed out of all the work assigned to that epic. The rightmost column shows the number of tasks in different states.

In the screen settings you can select the unit, sorting order, and the metrics shown in the rightmost column:

You can aggregate data from multiple underlying boards into this screen under the Sources tab. To get full overview of the status of your epics, you should aggregate data from all boards that contain cards assigned to your epics.


Grouping and filtering by epic

Epics are also available in the quick menus so you can use them for grouping data in the charts. As soon as you have epic data available, you’ll see the option to group data by epic:

Filtering by epic is available in all screens. To filter data by epic, select Adjust the filter from the main menu and select the epics under the Property tab:

Once you've made your selections, click View to see the filtered chart. To share a filter with other users, click Apply for all users. That makes the filtered view as the default setting for that chart for all users.
