Remaining Estimate

Is it possible to have an Issues remaining estimation in Story Points, and not in hours?

We are estimating in Story points for our program, and having remaing estimation in hours kind of contradict the whole estimation process for us.

So is it possible to change reaming estimation to story points?

Hi Peter

Hope this document would help you. 

Thanks, Vishnu. 

I've allready read that one, and it doesn't help.

It states that Story points enable the team to estimate stories in comparison to other stories, instead of forcing them to determine the time it will take to complete each story.

But you still do the remaining estimates in hours, and I think it contradicts the reason for doing estimation in story points.

So I understand, you need "Remaining Estimate" to Story points.  Due to the typo in your question I read like "Renaming". 

And yes, thats how it works. Remaning Estimate will be in hours/week/days.
