Adding Skill Original Story Point Values

Hi there!

We're using Portfolio for JIRa and loving it. We're experimenting with skills- is it possible to add up the total original story point values for one skill? For instance, let's say I have Javascript and User Experience Skills. I want to add in a value of 10 for both fields for one epic, and 20 for both fields for another epic. Is there a way to see that for Javascript, the total original story point estimate is 30 and for User Experience the total is 30?

Thank you,

A way you could do that is by grouping both epics into an Initiative, and then the aggregate story points would show in the estimate columns of the Initiative. 

Let me know if that works for you.


The problem is, we have so many initiatives! Normally this would work great, for our environment, not so much.

Thank you for your help,
