For all our projects, we have a specific set of work packages that need to be done. I put them in JIRA as Epics with a initial estimation in hours.
In our sprints, we define user stories with subtasks which are linked to those Epics.
To organize some monitoring mechanism, I want an overview of the hours that I've spend on the user stories (and subtasks) compared with he initial estimation of the EPIC. Is this possible?
For example, let's say I initially estimated 40 hours on EPIC A, and in sprint one I spend 20 hours working on User Story A which is linked to EPIC A, I want to see that 20 of the 40 hours are spend (50%)
At the moment I use the Epic Sum Up plugin. But, what I see is that the hours that are estimated for User Stories are added to the initial estimation of the the Epic and this is not what I want.
Anyone with the same problem? Or better...anyone with a solution?
Marvin, I'm afraid JIRA by design expects slightly different approach. Wwll, is enough flexible to be used in a way it wasn't built to be used, but...
I'd recommend to try to follow 'Atlassian' way first: https://confluence.atlassian.com/agile/jira-agile-user-s-guide/configuring-a-board/configuring-estimation-and-tracking
Hi...thank you for your reply. I already read this article but unfortunately this doesn't solve my problem completely.
What I want to try to accomplish is to define somewhere a baseline where I schedule an initial estimation for all workpackages (1 workpackage is one epic). During the scrum-process, I want to create tasks (user stories and sub-tasks) which are linked to the epics without increasing the initial estimation of the workpackage (epic).
So far, I didn't find a way to accomplish this
