How do I know how issues are estimates in the project board and Advanced Roadmaps?

Pedro Silva March 15, 2024

Documentation says:


You can track the progress of issues in your Jira application directly from your plan in Advanced Roadmaps.

When you connect a plan with your boards and projects, Advanced Roadmaps can detect the estimation unit of these issues, with the following conditions to note:

  • If issues are estimated in hours or days, Advanced Roadmaps will use time-based progress tracking.
  • If issues are estimated in story points, point-based aggregation will be used.
  • If you connect to boards and projects that have different plan units, Advanced Roadmaps will let you choose the estimation unit to use when you're creating the plan.
  • If you leave your issues unestimated, progress will be calculated based on issue resolution, as well as the progress of child issues, if any.

Hello @Pedro Silva 

You need to look at the issues. Do you see information in Original Estimate fields (the first bullet) or Story Point fields (the second bullet)?

If your plan is set up to connect to specific agile boards, then you would look at the board configuration to see which estimation option is selected.

Hi @Pedro Silva 

It's Mary from Planyway for Jira: workload, roadmap, time tracking.


To understand which conditions your project is using in Jira's Advanced Roadmaps based on the documentation snippet you've shared, you need to evaluate your project setup and issue estimation practices. Here’s how you can identify which condition applies to your project:

  1. Check the Estimation Units of Your Issues:

    • Go to your project or board settings in Jira.
    • Look for settings related to issue estimation. This might be found under project settings, board settings, or directly within the issue configuration settings.
    • Determine if your issues are estimated in hours, days, story points, or if they are unestimated.
  2. Review How Issues Are Estimated Across Boards and Projects:

    • If you’re working with multiple boards or projects connected to your Advanced Roadmap, check each one to see if they use the same estimation unit (hours, days, or story points).
    • Note any differences in estimation units across these boards and projects.

Based on the documentation and the steps above, here's how you can identify your project's condition:

  • Time-based Progress Tracking: If your issues are estimated in hours or days, Advanced Roadmaps will automatically use time-based progress tracking for these issues.

  • Point-based Aggregation: If your issues are estimated in story points, point-based aggregation will be utilized by Advanced Roadmaps.

  • Choosing an Estimation Unit: If you are connecting to boards and projects with different estimation units, Advanced Roadmaps will prompt you to choose the estimation unit to use when creating your plan. This typically happens during the initial setup of your plan in Advanced Roadmaps.

  • Progress Based on Issue Resolution: If your issues are unestimated, progress will be calculated based on issue resolution and the progress of child issues, if any. This means that the system will track how many issues are resolved versus how many are still open, potentially taking into account the progress of sub-tasks or linked issues.
