Allow users to visualize grouped work on their boards
Problem to solve
Grouping issues within a board helps a team understand how work items are moving through a workflow with the added benefit of understanding how these items funnel up to a larger goal. This also allows transparency to view how other teams are working toward larger goals- and helps identify optimization that could be made to the workflow. MVC will be allowing users to group work by epic.
See #7371 for general use case notes and customer feedback.
Parker When refining work in progress with my team, I need to understand if the work in progress will achieve the larger goals So I can accurately communicate status to stakeholders
As a user of Issue Boards, I need to be able to group work on my issue board by Epic, So I can clearly see how a specific Epic's issues are progressing through our workflow
User experience goal
Users should be able to understand how larger goals are progressing through their workflows as well as the more granular issues that comprise these goals.
- Add horizontal rows to the current board, each row is titled with the metric the issues are grouped by (epics from MVC)
- The entire board will now scroll instead of each individual list.
- Titles are fixed to the left
- Epics are displayed by date created, most recent appearing on the top.
