I am starting a sprint on JIRA and i have all the related issues estimated in STORY POINTS.
My reports are configured to read STORY POINTS (burning down / velocity / etc).
The team is logging the effort in "HOURS unit". How can we log STORY hours spent on each issue instead of HOURS?
I am confused because the JIRA should accept STORY points as effort since i had configured this as my default effort for reports.
Your team logs hours because it uses the Log work button. If you want your team to log story points then disable time tracking and add story points field to all issue types.If you follow the guide below you will disable time tracking for the whole instance.
You can disable time tracking for certain transitions if you follow the guide below
Selecting "Story Points" as the estimate measure on boards doesn't hide the hours fields (Original and Remaining Estimates). Either you need to hide them from the related screens or educate your users to use "Story Points" in addition to hours.
JIRA has the flexibility of using one or the other or both of them at the same time, although the boards can use only one of them as a statistic for reporting and such.
Thank you very much for the suggestion, now it is working fine. The only problem is that the issue subtasks effort (story points) are not being considered on the burning down chart.
Note: subtasks of a JIRA are automatically added to the sprint of the main related issue.
Do you know some solution about this?
Many thanks in advance.
