    Hi there

     

    Latest update of TeamPulse has a read only calculated estimate field - where is the value for this field comming from?
    Task estimates or somewhere else as mine after update are 0.

    Where do I change or choose items for this value?

     

    Best regards

    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    You can find information about the Calculated Estimate in our documentation - here.

    Tasks estimate is not taken in the calculation and do not affect it.

    If you have further questions do not hesitate to contact us again.

    It would be great to rethink including tasks in the calculated estimate... after all it is the work to complete a story! Maybe if you included it as an option to include or not include tasks it would meet both use cases?

    Hi Christopher,

    Thank you for the feedback. Tasks estimates are measured in hours, while stories/bugs/features are measured in story points. Since they are not comparable we don't drill down estimates to the task level.

    We understand that not everyone wants to estimate in different measurement units and we think that the unit for each work item type should be a configuration, however the assumption that tasks and stories/bugs/features are measured in different units is built in deeply into the product and changing this behavior will require a lot of work, that will hardly justify the minor feature (on the outside).
