Oops I Did it Again... Maybe My Story Really is an Epic

Enterprise Agile Planning
This is something I hear quite often from the Product Owners I speak with.  Initially they captured their stories (aka features, requirements, backlog, etc.) thinking  that it was at a reasonable size for the team to work on.  However, as time goes by the Product Owner realizes that this single piece of work is too large to be consumed in a single iteration."Oh no!  Am I going to have to delete my Story from VersionOne? Do I create an Epic and copy/paste all the original information from the Story?  There has to be an easier way!"Well there is!  Your friends at VersionOne know that this scenario pops up so we've provided a simple solution specifically for this.  See the screenshots below: [gallery link="file" columns="2" orderby="title"] Summary:
  • On your Story select the "Breakdown Epic" option from the drop/down
  • Capture any additional data you need before confirming your Epic
  • Now since an Epic has been generated you can edit and add Child Stories which you want associated to the Epic
