Plan seems to ignore unestimated work with later fixversion

Deleted user Oct 06, 2017
I have an epic spanning fixversions with the latest version only containing unestimated work. I have unestimated item scheduling based on target dates. I expected in this scenario for portfolio to honour the fixversion dates, however it doesn't. Neither does it honour the target start and end dates if set. The only way I can find to get portfolio there is work in the later release and hence extend the timeline to incorporate that release is by assigning an estimate.
I must be doing something wrong or maybe there is a bug somewhere. Can anyone help?

Hi, has this problem been solved? Thanks

Dear @Paul Smith,
When you have Unestimated item scheduling set to Base on target dates, an unestimated issue should be shown if it is assigned to a sprint, a release, or has target dates itself.
Try turning off Sprints in the Schedule settings (to right of the Calculate button) or have a look at the Target schedule. 
If this is not what you are looking for, please provide screenshots so we can better understand the problem. 
I hope this helps!

Hi thanks for the response, and apologies maybe I was not as clear as I could have been.

My issue is purely with the end date of the epic in portfolio view. In the situation I described where there is no estimated work in the epic, however there are fixversions attached with dates against them, I would expect the epic duration to extend to the latest date of the fixversion attached to the epic.

Can you advise why this behaviour would not occur?
