For example, a task in Jira is entered as 3 weeks 4 hours. When exported the original and remaining estimate fields both contain a value of 446400.
This occurs for every task on every project. I can't seem to figure out how 446,400 relates back to 3 weeks 4 hours or if this is just some sort of error with the export.
It's exporting a simple number of seconds for compatibility reasons (most spreadsheets won't understand strings like 3w 4d 2h). Divide it by 3,600 to get the export in hours.
I get 124 hours out of that, which implies your timetracking settings are 8 hours a day, 5 days a week because dividing by 8 gives 15.5 days.
Thanks for the comment, but when I do the math it does not seem to work out.
If I break down the time estimate:
120 hrs. + 32 hrs. + 2 hrs. = 154 hrs in 3W 4d 2h (not 124 hrs).
154 hrs. = 554,400 not 446,400 as exported.
What am I missing?
I'm really sorry, I've completely muddied the waters by using a different string in my example, then doing the calculation on your real data.
You said 3 weeks, 4 hours, which is ((3 * 5 * 8) + 4) * 3600 = 446,400, and that's what you get in your spreadsheet.
If you'd used my data (3w 4d 2h), you'd get 554,400 in the spreadsheet.
