It seems like an Epic should be created as a task, then we would use sub-tasks (maybe sub-sub-tasks) to map out development tasks.
But trying to do this we run into problems...
- A sub-task can be in additional folders to its parent, but it HAS to be in the same folders as its parent. So If I put Epic1 in a sprint but some sub-tasks will spill into a future sprint, it screws up gantt and other views.
- Maybe we should keep Epic1 outside the sprint and only put sub-tasks in individual sprints. But then where should the parent live?
- Subtasks don't really show that they are sub-tasks well so we have to give them very verbose names like Epic1: Do the thing
- I can't see a task automatically can set it's start/end dates based on its sub-tasks, or let us see % completion, total time spent, etc
I've seen quite a few posts about sub-tasks in different areas. I'd initially thought they were full tasks in their own right, now I'm not sure if they are limited or not.
