Project Completion (%) based on count instead of Estimate (weighted value), why?

After 2 days of using TeamPulse I have a couple of questions.
Here's the 1st one ..

I've noticed is that the Project Completion (shown in the dashboard) is based on the ticket count and IMHO the value should be based on the Estimated work per story. 
Currently, if I have 10 stories and 1 compelted it shows 10% completed but maybe the 1 story that I've closed was 80% of the work.

Is there any reason why somebody would want to know the % tickets closed (instead of the weighted value) ??

Hello Sebastian Talamoni,

 You are correct. Project Completion is calculated based on story count. That being said, I agree with you that it should be weighted by estimate or at least have that as an option. Some project management methodologies (like Kanban) suggest that every work item should be the same size (estimate), but it is unlikely that every Story would be the same size in any scenario.

I have added a feature to our backlog stating that we should provide both a Project Completion Chart based on Count and one based on Estimate or we should give the option to choose what chart the user wants to see.

Thanks,
