Customize epic layouts | Zoho Sprints Help

Customize epic layouts

The epic creation form is composed of fields that help capture the epic details that you need recorded. Zoho Sprints has a predefined standard layout that is applied by default. However, the form comes with a customizable layout. This enables you to include additional fields apart from the default fields. So, you can introduce custom fields into the form's layout based on your requirement. After you've customized the layout, your epic details will display these field along with the default fields.
