Adding up the remaining effort by columns (Scrum board; jira-agile)


We use jira-agile with scrum boards and sprints.

What we want is to in some way find a sum of the remaining estimate by column.

e.g. We have a column Open , In Development and In Test, i want to find out total what is remaining estimate for all issues that are in Open column and so on...

This information will inform us which column is becoming the bottleneck in the current sprint.

Here's a link to the Chrome webstore:
