I have a task which is split into 4 subtasks. Thes have been completed and had their time spent and remaining time updated. However the parent tasks time spent is still zero and seems to require me to manually update it! Surely it should inherit the sum of the time spent on its subtasks?
Ok, I have found it. However it is already ticked. So it clearly does not work.... This surely has to be simple. All I need is the parent task to auto update with its childrens time spent.... To close a parent issue I should not have to remember how long I have spent on all its subtasks.
The time spent that you logged on the sub tasks will be added to the total Logged time (the 3th bar in the above example). It will not be deducted from the Estimated Time (1st bar in the example) logged on the parent, this is not how this functionality behaves.
