How do I see or hide the completion state of children in a group?

You can quickly check your progress on a set of grouped cards by looking either at the front of the parent card of the group or on the card back of the parent card of the group:

Defining the completion state

Now, wait a minute—what does it mean for a card to be complete? Well, that's for you to decide! Hello Epics decides whether a card is complete by which column it's in. Using the Hello Epics settings dialog, located in the Hello Epics menu in the upper right, you can pick from a dropdown which column you'd like to use as the completion state:

What if you want to use more than one column to define completion? We've got you covered. Using the same dropdown, instead of choosing one of your columns by name, you can match against the beginning or end of your column names:

As you can see in our example above, you could have an unqualified Done column (perhaps for your most recently completed work) along with dated Done columns, all of which would mark their contents as completed as far as Hello Epics is concerned.

 

Hiding the completion state

Maybe seeing the completion state of your cards isn't valuable to you, and you'd rather hide that information—we understand! To disable the card completion tracking, open the Hello Epics menu in the upper right corner and click the Settings menu item, which will open a settings dialog:

At the bottom of the dialog, you'll see a checkbox to disable completion tracking. Clicking it will gray out the completion portion of the settings dialog:

Now when you look at the board or the card back, you'll see that the completion statistics have been replaced by a simple count of the children cards:
