Is it possible to enable 'Remaining' column in the Plan Mode of an agile board?
Every time we plan a sprint we find it painful that we have to click on every issue in order to see how much time remains on a particular ticket. Just as in the picture below the highlighted ticket shows 4 days estimate, which we don't care that much any more. Instead we would like to see the remaining time on the ticket, which in this case is 2 days. This is particularly useful when we decide which tickets to kick out of the sprint when we go over the available capacity for the sprint.
but how to plan the next sprint when open stories with remaining estimates still exist? How does Atlassian solve this issue. In real world, there are often stories that are still open after sprint completion and need to become complete in the next sprint.
I think the point is how are you supposed the plan them. The "original estimate" which is what is shows on the planning board is no longer accurate, as a significant chunk of the work has been done. You could "lie" and change the original estimate as part of re-planning, but they you lose some of the useful "estimate vs reality" metrics which product managers like to track ;)
