Agile backlog and workload by assignee doesn't sum sub-task estimation

I found that backlog list or workload by assignee table doesn't sum sub-tasks estimation to its parent issue.

Is it intended ? then why?

I want to see the total estimation days of the issues including sub-tasks.

Hi there,

It seems like it this is an intended configuration from Atlassian Development.

We have an opened issue requesting this feature to be available and addressed in Atlassian development roadmap.

I would recommend you to vote for it if it correlates to your request.


Also, you can try in the meantime a different hierarchy setup, like Epics > Tasks instead of Tasks > sub-tasks.


I hope you find this information useful!


Can you please point me to this request so that I can upvote it? Also, does different hierarchy suggested work, anyone tried it - I am not an admin so can't check?

I have the same problem. How can I vote for this feature request?

I REALY need this to!

 Andre Borzzatto [Atlassian] has this been configured since jan. 2015??

Where can I vote for the request?
