There are a lot of ways how you can decide that a requirement will be epic or user story: - Epic is always bigger than 1 sprint (1 sprint can't be longer than 1 month. - A user story is one functionality in the product. - One big user story can be split in more user stories but it is not epic. - Epic is when you have 3 or more big User Stories who are dependent.

Epic: User Profile User Stories: As a user, I want to have a profile picture so that I can... I hope it was helpful. Best regards

  • A few informative messages can be user stories if it can implement in one sprint. – MrScrumMaster Feb 15 at 13:34
