Using Jira Work Management to Estimate Project End Date?

Hi all,


I am interested in using Jira Work Management to estimate the End Date of a project, based on the following elements:

  1. The tasks that need to be completed
  2. How long each task should take to complete
  3. The linking/ dependencies that each task has - i.e. if Task Two is dependent on Task One, and each takes 2 weeks, the total time to complete One and Two should be Four Weeks. If Tasks 1, 2, and 3 each take Two weeks, but Only 2 is dependent on 1 (i.e. Task 3 can start at the same time as Task 1), the total time should still be Four weeks

I can't seem to figure out how to calculate this using the program. Setting the end date manually seems silly because that just ignores task length and necessary sequencing. 


Thank you!
