We have defined stories within our sprint, and each story has various subtasks under it. Those subtasks are assigned hours for the sprint. We want to track the burndown as each subtask closes; however, none of the subtask hours show as closed on the burndown until the entire story closes. I wanted to see if there was an option for this burndown view?

Hi @John Hannah,

You best option here is the Sprint Burnup Burndown Chart offered by our Great Gadgets app. It offers an option to include the subtasks and supports calculation by time estimates.

This app offers many other gadgets that you might find useful, with support for subtasks and time estimates: velocity chart, release burndown chart, etc. See also this blog post: Tracking an agile project that uses time estimates with Great Gadgets for Jira.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact support@stonikbyte.com.  

Thank you,

Danut M.

Hello @John Hannah 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

Are you working with a Team Managed project or a Company Managed project? That information will display at the bottom of the panel on the left when you are viewing the project/board.

In a Company Managed project where the burndown chart is displayed with the Remaining Time Estimate option selected the burndown shows the changes in Remaining Time Estimate regardless of the status of the issues, and includes the time from Subtasks.

It is for a company. Remaining time estimate isn't an option on the dropdown for the burndown. I do have task hours, but they will only decrease once the entire stories closes.

In your Board Settings > Estimation, did you click the radio button for "Remaining Estimate and Time Spent", and are you logging time against issues? That is what makes "Remaining Estimate" an option for the burndown chart.
