Show Task Indicators instead of Story Points Edited



Is there a way we can configure the three bubble indicators in the top right of the Sprints on the backlog page to reflect Task issue types instead of Story Points? Our team primarily creates and uses Task issue types, and it would be nice to see it reflect on the indicators.

Hi @Saxon Julian 

You appear to be using a NextGen project, so you need to disable estimation so the counts are issue counts.  To do so:

  • On the left slide-out pane, select Project Settings
  • Then select Features
  • Find Estimation, and disable it
  • On the left pane, select Back to Project
  • Check your numbers on the backlog

Best regards,


This worked, thanks!

HI @Saxon Julian - The bubbles represents what was configure for the board as estimation. In this case story points.  You can choose to do issue count, story points,..You can change this in the board configuration under estimation.


Hope this helps. 



I have searched for awhile and cannot find that option on my Board page. I only see the option of Edit sprint and Manage workflow under the the "..." on my Board screen. I am an admin if that helps.

@Saxon Julian - You are located on the board. You need to go to the board settings.


Here's a screenshot to get you going.

Maybe I am missing something obvious, but I cannot find that option anywhere on our Backlog or Board pages in JIRA.
