We use story points to estimate stories. How can I change the configuration of story points? At least the description or translation (it currently is set to "... Grö?e der ..." which should at least be "... Größe der ..." and - better yet - adding information about our scale.
Is there a possibility to restrict entered numbers to the ones we'd like to allow (1..10 / Fiabonacchi / Mountain Goat / ... - there are some possibilities that all have a set of numbers).
Thanks in advance,
You can change the description of story points just like any other custom field.
Unfortunately you can't change the field type of custom field after its been created, so story points are an opened ended number field. I also wish I could change this to powers of 2 (1, 2, 4, 8), something that the much less feature rich Pivotal Tracker actually supports.
That field probably cannot be modified, so my answer may not help much, but here it goes.
I always recommend the modified Fibonacci approach (1,2,3,5,8,13,20,40,100). Then, you just need to remind your teams of the valid numbers. If you notice a '4', either have a conversation or make it a 5.
Ideally, each team will have their own definition of 'what a 5 is' so the best way to do any cross-project analysis on performance is converting it to a ratio. I don't personally have to do that.
If this is important to you, google Rapid Scrum and view their short presentations. It is good stuff, just doesn't play well with JIRA at this point.
