Remaining time on top level tasks if we report to subtask

Hello,

We plan our sprints in a way where we have user stories (top level) and sub-tasks (tasks) low level.

We estimate stories in ideal days, but we don't estimate tasks at all (so every subtask estimate is actually 0).

However we do log time on tasks, since it's logical to report time to the sub task you work on.

But our time spent on subtask does not seem to influence remaining time on user story level. That is why sprint burndown chart does not work sad

How can we fix it ?

Your burndown chart will work when you resolve the stories. You can't roll up time into story points, the two don't merge like that.

Ah , I see your point. That's true. We will try that.
