Subtask reporting (story points)

Hello - I would like to add subtasks for the different components of a story, task or bug i.e Android, FE and BE. I then want to report on the amount of points delivered by each dev (against their subtask). what is the best way to report on this?

Hello @Andrea Smart 

Welcome to the community.

Generally Story Points should not be assigned to sub-tasks. All the built in reporting concerning Story Points considers only the Story Points assigned to issues at the Story/Bug/Task level.

Technically you can add a Story Points field to Sub-tasks, and you could construct your own custom queries to gather that information. But the built in reports will not include that information and there will not be any automatic roll up of the sub-task Story Points to the parent issue.

Can you tell us more about the problem you are trying to solve with this strategy?

Hi @Trudy Claspill 

Thanks for your response.

Our solution is divided into multiple components, android, front end and back-end. Each user story typically comprises a combination of these components which would be assigned to different team members to perform. The issue that we have with assigning points at a user story level is that we are unable to see how many points have been assigned to an individual component or user. If we had sight of this we would be in a better position to identify whether a resource has been over allocated or not.

Do you use time tracking? You could be assigning Original Estimates to the sub-tasks (in minutes/hours/days) and basing your reporting on that. You could use the Workload Pie gadget to generate a report of Original Estimate grouped by Assignee or by Component.
