Time tracking on sub-tasks

HI All

We are stuck in a time tracking issue on jira.

We usually estimate our stories in days and later on the stories are broken down in tens of sub-tasks. Each developers again estimates each of the sub-tasks and logs time on sub-tasks

What it effectively means is that the total estimate gets over-inflated because we are counting the estimate twice (once on parent story and then again on sub-tasks).

Things get even more complicated when you run agile, and due to this the burndown get over-inflated.

What is the possible solution to our problem of double counting of estimates?

Hey Rahul,

There are some requests in https://jira.atlassian.com regarding the estimation in subtasks:

Some of them (last two) have some workarounds suggested in the comments, which might be helpful for your case.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,
