- Calculation of progress completion

Based on the data analyzed so far, i see that Jira uses below formula to calculate "Progress" of the issue

Progress = Time Spent/Original Estimate.

The issue that i see in the data is:

1. If issue Status Category is Done, however, Time Spent is less that Original Estimate, the Progress does not show 100%

2. If Time spent is greater than original estimate, the progress is shown as 100% even though the issueCategoryStatus is To Do or In Progress.

What is the guidelines to calculate right progress% in these cases?

Typically, to calculate Effort variation, we will see how much effort has been spent on top of effort estimate provided.

But looks like if we need to ensure Progress % is correct,

when OriginalEstimate is less that Actual Logged effort, we will have to revise the OriginalEstimate entered upwards. This will ensure that Progress% is reflected correctly. is the understanding correct?

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ - I was under the wrong impression that remaining estimate is a field that is auto updated and should not be manually updated :-(

Thanks for clearing this out.

To Summarize:

1. Original Estimate updated as: 10 hours

2. Actual Time entered: 12 hours

3. Developer estimates that it will take another 3 hours to complete the task

4. In this case Remaining estimate to be updated as: 3 hours

5. Once 3 hours of time is logged, remaining estimate will automatically be updated to Zero

It will be helpful if you can confirm now the understanding is correct.

Thanks.

One option to update remaining estimate is while creating work log entry.

I tried to see if it is possible to update remaining estimate via Bulk estimate. it does not look like it is possible.

Is there any other alternative approach to update remaining estimate?

Thank You so much. Truly appreciate the time you have spent in responding to my queries.

it has been really helpful in clearing all my doubts.
