Can we use story points and velocity to calculate "time" in Gantt Cloud?

As the title says, can we do this? Is this being implemented if not? Requiring the use of time tracking doesn't help those of us using story points.

Hi Brandon,

It sounds like an interesting idea indeed. The only question is, how you would like to "convert" story points into dates? Maybe, by multiplying them by some sort of custom time factor?

Also, as Jira Agile doesn't have an API available for Atlassian Connect plugins (that is the one Gantt Cloud is using) at the moment I need to check first if I could get the story points data directly from the Issue itself.

I think you could get the "time" factor out of it by potentially utilizing the velocity (if that's available). ie - The project has an average velocity of 60 points per two week sprint, and therefore an average of 30 points per week and therefore an average of six points per day... I think that would work :)

Thanks for the consideration!
