I can't find "Board > Configure"

I can't find "Board > Configure" in order to configure Estimations and Tracking. My user belongs to all admin groups. A screen shot of the mentioned option would be helpful

Look at the top right hand corner of your board, for the board menu button, and look in there.

If you don't have configure in there, then you will need to talk to one of the board admins about getting yourself added to the board as an admin.

Ok, your documentation sucks !! (or is not updated). sad

It says: "Board > configure"

It should say: "... button > Board settings > Estimations"

Wouldn't it be better if you inlclude a screen shot ?!?!?

So, your answer was partially useful. 



You asked about "Board -> Configure", so I answered that, because your question clearly stated that you could not find that.

The estimates are under there.  Again, reading properly would have taken you there.


Hi Hector,

Atlassian Answers is a user forum where experienced users such as Nic freely offer help and information to less experienced users such as you.  It's not an official support channel and it's only lightly policed by Atlassian staff, mainly to remove spammers or abusive posters.

If you'd like to give Atlassian your opinions on their documentation then by all means raise a support ticket or log a feature request/bug at https://jira.atlassian.com/.

To answer your question about it being better to include a screenshot, I suspect they haven't put a screenshot into that page because if a user doesn't even know how to access board settings then they're unlikely to be an administrator. 

Nic, Rob,

I have to apologize to you both. 

I'm totally new to Jira and I thought this was an oficial support chanel. I assumed I was going to be talking to an Atlassian employee.

Now, I understand that in a very stupid way I directed my anger to the wrong person. 

Very sorry for that.

And Nic, just to clarify, I asked for Board > Configure, because that is exactly what Jira's online documentation says, that's why I mentioned that the documentation is wrong.

Anyway, sorry again and thanks for make me realize about my mistake.
