I want to use the t-shirt size template to estimate story points in stories and tasks. I would like to have a field in the story/task so that the user sees the size of the shirt and when he selects it, assign a story point
You could add a single-select, custom field for your t-shirt sizes and use an automation rule, triggered on a change to the t-shirt size, to set your Story Points field based on the size.
Yes and to add to this I wonder why Story Points itself doesn't work...
5 = S
10 = M
15 = L
20 = XL
25 = 2XL
my only point here is that story points really is a variation of T-shirt sizing. Yes it would mean re-training the team but it is one less custom field to deal with.
hello @Bill Sheboy Thank you for the answer. but I have one point regarding the automation rule, triggered on a change to the t-shirt size, to set the sory points field based on the size. how we do it? I searched ALOT to be able to do it but I get zero usuful answer. so if you tried it before and you have experince in that I will be very greatful for your help.
This is the home page for information on creating Automation Rules (for Jira Cloud).
You would use a Trigger of Field value changed.
You would follow this with a series of if/else blocks to
- use an Issue Fields Condition to compare the value of the t-shirt field to one of the values you defined for that field
- use an Action to Edit Issue and set the Story points field to the corresponding number value.
An alternative method that could work also is to use a Lookup Table. You can find details about that in the Actions documentation.
