Basic Math operations in custom formulas ?

TP July 4, 2023

I am trying to get an idea of the number of sprints I'll have to spend on a feature based on person-days estimates of several teams.

I want to approximate this value by taking the biggest number of sprints that each team will have to spend on it


Team 1 30 person-days = 3 Sprints

Team 2 20 person-days = 1 Sprint

Team 3 60 person-days = 2 Sprints

I would like the result to be 3 Sprints and the way you would calculate it is 

Max(Sprints Team 1, Sprints Team 2, Sprints Team 3)


Is this planned in the near future ? I have to export into excel to do this which I would like to get rid of...

Hi @TP 

Are all of the fields you note in your Jira Product Discovery (JPD) project?  If so, it does not appear there is a max() function for custom formulas in fields yet.

Have you considered using an automation rule in your project to set the field?

Kind regards,
