Scope of viewing your epic progress

An epic is considered to be a larger user story that contains work items across different sprints. When compared to a sprint, an epic has a maximum number of work items which takes a longer duration to complete. 
 
"Teams that work agile estimate their effort either based on the estimation points that are assigned to the work items or directly depend on the number of work items".

Case 1:  Say Clare created an epic and has added all the relevant work items. Her team estimates the progress only by using estimation points. She wants to know how many points are completed in the epic right. How can she track the number? 
 
Solution:  Using the 'Progress by Points' under each epic she can easily track the  Total Points in each epic  and the  Completed   Points . She can also track the completion percentage (%) of the epic and analyze in-depth progress of each epic using the Epic Progress report.
