I like to point issues when I commit to a sprint plan and would like to wait on assigning a story point for a particular issue until that time. It seems the 'Story Point Estimate' field is locked and I cannot control this required field. Is there another way to turn it off?
Hello @Alec Brewster
What do you mean by the field is 'locked'?:
By default, providing a value for the Story Points field is not required when creating Stories, as that is the normal Agile behaviour of setting Story Points values during backlog grooming or Sprint planning. That means that someone at your company has specifically configured that field on that project to behave in the way you are experiencing.
Speak to the project admin, as changing it for you changes it for everyone in the project.
Thanks David, I am the admin and cannot figure out where to go to unlock that value. It is the field called 'Story Point Estimate'. Any ideas?
Ahhh, the Story Points field and the Story Point Estimate field are totally different things and available under different circumstances depending on whether you're in a Company Managed project or a Team Managed (formerly called 'NexGen') project.
Read this article on the history of those two fields and the use of the Story Point Estimate field in Team Managed projects.
