Sum of backlog time estimates Edited

Is there a way how to see a sum of all backlog items Remaining estimates? That is kinda super basic and yet I cannot find a way how to do that.

Hi, 

When you create a sprint there is a marker that shows the time remaining and the estimated story points.

You can drag and drop this marker at the end of your backlog so it takes all issues into account.

Yeah, I know about this but I somehow cannot believe that we are forced to use this stupid workaround when obviously it would take a few minutes for Atlassian to implement a simple field below the backlog, the same way they do it for sprints...

Well it works quite easily :-) 

Whatever there are open suggestions you can vote for if you want an improvement on this.

Regards,

Sure, it works but it is a workaround for for something that is crucial and completely basic for a software used for software development planning. 

Also, if you backlog is large, then it involves scrolling and hoping you will not release the button..
