Task Board Column: Summation of Hours Remaining for the column

How do I configure the hours that are being accumulated for each Column such as To DO, In Progress....In QA....Done.

Mine are still showing 0m even tho we have populated ORiginal Estimate fiedl and Time Remaining Field. So I need to fix this configuation of what it is summing.

Where Do I do that ?

Actually I think there is no configuration for Taskboard to show this. Are the total values for the planned Sprint coming in the version box (right side) while in the Planning Board view?

Hey Renjith,

Thanks for the response.

To answer your question : No.

I think something is wrong with how we have setup our screens or field templates or whatever the correct semantic is. In the Planning board, on the right side where it details out number of issues, time remaining, time spent etc, it shows that Time Estimate is 0m, Time Remaining is 0m....

And then when I look on a jira ticket, I see that I do not even have a "Time Estimate" field on a ticket. We use a customized field called "ESTIMATE".

So I guess there are two options for me now:

1) So if there was a way, that I could CONFIGURE the Task Board to Sum the Estimate field rather than the Time Estimate field, then I would get my Totals.

2) If I cannot configure the Task Board Column Totals - then can you help me force the Time SPent and Time Estimate fields onto my existing Jira tickets ?

Am guessing that time tracking is not enable in your Jira instance. See http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Time+Tracking

In that case there is not need of an additional custom field for estimates and the task boards should show the values automatically.

It is not possible to show accumulated hours. This is a very desirable feature, that there have bene plenty of posts about. This would be a good plugin for someone to write.
