Burndown chart - Remaining Time Estimate

Hi Team,

When setting the board to show remaining time estimates, are the Subtasks logged hours considered in the burndown report? How does the report change when changing the flag - "Include Sub Tasks" option?

I would love if you have a detailed explanation on how to read the burndown chart for Remaining Time Estimates view and Original Time Estimates view

Hello @Phaneesh C Gopisetty

Thank you for reaching out.

I'm afraid the Burndown chart of Jira application does not consider the Story points of sub-task issues in both Classic and Next-gen Projects. Since we understand this would be a useful feature to have, we created the following feature request with our development team to include sub-task estimation in the Burndown chart:

Burndown chart doesn't take under consideration the sub-tasks estimation 

Feel free to vote and watch the suggestion to increase its priority and also receive notifications about any updates.

In fact, the estimation of sub-tasks are not considered in Jira reports and boards, so we recommend you to estimate all your work in standard-issue types. The reason behind this decision was explained by Shaun in the following question:

Rapid Board time estimates with subtasks 

For a detailed explanation on how to read the Burndown chart report, you can check the documentation below:

Hi @Phaneesh C Gopisetty 

Try our Great Gadgets app. It includes sprint / release burndown chart gadgets that can calculate by time remaining  & time spent. Also, it offers an option to include subtasks.
