When grooming the Backlog or scanning it for tasks to pull into a sprint, the estimate I need to see on each Jira is Remaining Work, not Original Estimate.
The default view shows the Original Estimate. If I have a large task which has been worked on previously and is mostly complete, then the original estimate isn't useful - I just want to see what's left. How can I show Remaining Estimate in the Backlog view?
I've found others asking similar questions, but haven't yet found an answer.
Hopefully I can help you with this. As an Admin, go to Board Settings (the 3 dots in the top right hand corner for Cloud Jira) and choose Card Layout. You then have 2 dropdowns, one for the Backlog view and one for the Active Sprint view. Click the dropdown for the Backlog view and scroll to the Remaining Estimate field. Click Add and then click Back to board. You can configure up to 3 extra fields to show in each view.
I hope this works for you.
Thanks for that! Not sure why I didn't see it myself, but happy to be pointed to the answer anyway.
I'd been chasing a setting to adjust the value which shows on the right, but as it looks like that's fixed, just being able to see the number I need somewhere is enough.
