I am using Jira with an agile project setup. We have been creating tasks and stories with sub tasks. The problem is that we have been assigning estimate times to our subtasks. But Jira isnt showing the total time for the task / story in the 'plan' overview window. Are we doing something wrong or is this normal?
We could just make stories with estimates and no sub tasks - but this isnt ideal in the 'work' view.
This is normal as sub-tasks' estimates are independent of and not accumulated to parent's estimate in JIRA Agile. There has been a long discussion about this and you may find more detailed information at Agile Q&A – GreenHopper Time Estimates with Sub-Tasks.
