Hi @sudakshina ghosh,

As far as I know, Jira does not include the sub-tasks in its burndown reports or Sprint Burndown gadget. I just tested, and on my system I see no sub-tasks in the reports or gadgets.

If you want to track sub-tasks, your best option would be our Great Gadgets app, which let's you include the sub-tasks not only in the Sprint Burndown Burnup Chart gadget, but also in the Release Burndown Burnup Chart or Team Velocity gadget. So a complete solution for tracking your Scrum projects by subtasks!

On its data tab, this gadget displays also a sprint report, which includes the subtasks.

Certainly, I'm happy to assist.

  1. Yes, Jira allows tracking of burndown based on subtasks. By breaking down larger tasks into subtasks, you can effectively monitor progress at a more granular level.

  2. Absolutely, estimating subtasks can provide a more accurate representation of your burndown. By estimating the time or effort required for each subtask, you can better gauge progress and adjust your project timeline accordingly. This approach enhances visibility and allows for more precise tracking of your project's trajectory. If you need guidance on how to estimate subtasks effectively within Jira, I'm here to help.

Hi @Chris Chambers,

Are you sure that this is possible? Maybe I am missing something, but I just double-checked on my test Jira Cloud and it does not seem to be possible.

Could you please tel us how how to make the sub-tasks visible in the Jira reports and gadgets?

Thanks,

Danut.
