The intake form is used to store additional information about an epic. This is the information your organization wants to collect about every project. The default intake form appears when you create an epic and contains such fields:

  • Justification
  • Department
  • Requestor
  • Reviewer
  • Approver

You can also create custom intake forms and apply them to epics. Custom intake forms may be applied portfolio-wide, or alternatively, to individual programs. For the steps on how to apply an intake form to an epic, see the Manage epics > Intake section.

To create an intake set:

  1. If you’re using the new navigation, select the Settings gear Gear in the top navigation bar. If you’re using the old navigation, select Administration in the left Nav menu.
  2. On the left side of the page, select Platform in the Settings section.
  3. On the Portfolio tab, click Manage Here next to Epic Intake Set.
  4. Type the name in the Intake Set Name box, and then click Add.
  5. Type your question in the corresponding box, select the question type, and then click Add.
  6. If you selected dropdown as your question type, type an answer to your question and click Add.
  7. Add more answers if needed.
    Note: The answer ranked as the first one in the list will be the default selection.

To edit an intake set:

  1. Select the necessary intake set from the Edit Intake Set drop-down menu.
  2. Edit a question or an answer, and then click the floppy disk icon next to it to save
    your changes.
    Note: You can move your questions and answers by clicking up and down arrows. To delete your question or answer, click the cross sign next to it.
