Hi team,


When i want to check project burndown chart with remaining time estimate, i cannot see any time estimate data in the chart as below ss.

I already added subtasks with estimation in Story/Task ticket.


When i switch it to Story Point, the SP burndown chart can display with correct data.


Can you help and guide me how to make this remaining time chart work? Thanks in advance.

Hi @Zeng_ Erin _MEDCN NON-J_J_,

The report does not include the subtasks; it only looks at the parent tasks / stories for the sprint. 

So make sure that the stories/tasks from the sprint have a remaining time set, and if you log time only on sub-tasks, then check "Include sub-tasks" on their parent story.



Also, instead of this limited report of Jira, you could try the Sprint Burndown Burnup Chart gadget offered by our Great Gadgets app, which has support for sub-tasks and can be generated by Remaining Time Estimate. In this case you will not need to check "Include subtasks" on the parent stories.


On its Data tab, the gadget offers a detailed sprint report by remaining estimate. 

See more details about this gadget (and the many others offered by the same app) in this article: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/App-Central/8-gadgets-for-a-powerful-Scrum-dashboard-in-Jira/ba-p/1683063 

Hope this helps. If you have questions about this gadget, feel free to contact us at support@stonikbyte.com.
