Is there a way to show / edit story points on a Kanban style board?

My team makes use of a Kanban style board to help pepare our stories before they go into our backlog.

They Start out as New, move into a Defining stage, then a Estimating stage, all before ending up at To Do.

The Kanban style board is perfect for this, but we really wish we could view and edit story points on the agile work board, just as we can if the board was a scrum board and we where in the middle of a sprint.

Is there some way to do this?

If not, is there any discussion about having this added to Greenhopper in a future release?

The details view section is getting customizable with the custom fields as well. So this also should be possible in future, I guess.

In work mode, click on the story, type e (for edit) and have the Story Points field in your edit screen.

There's no easy way to see the story points right not, cause the custom fields only include text items, but you could make a couple of quick filters by your story point ranges (small, med, large)

There is an issue https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-7265 that is over 2 years old now.

Meanwhile we've added this functionality in our add-on Agile Estimates for JIRA. It enables you to see and edit estimate value on Kanban Boards like you can do it in Plan mode of Scrum Board.

You can see how it works here.
