Creating epics on trial

We are considering coming over from Confluence/Jira. We signed up for the 30-day cloud trial and wanted to test out the Epic feature and the roadmap feature.

Since im a newbie to Gitlab, I cant figure out where to create an Epic. I go into the test board we created and don’t see a way to create Epics. only issues/stories. I then created a “Group” and a new project in that group but still don’t see anyway to create Epics.

Our main goal is to align Product / Eng so they create a Epic for say “Website” and then put all the various stories inside it of things to do. These could be product, design, content, FE, BE work etc.
