Structure formula question: Get total story points in a Structure?

Hello. I have  Structure board that is built via a query at the top level. I typically group it using the Component field. I would like to create a formula column showing each group's percentage of the story points in the entire Structure board.

What I can't figure out is how to access the number representing the sum of all points in the Structure. Is there a number representing this, or a way to calculate it?

Thank you.

example.pngAttached is an example of what I do if it helps.

Story Points - choose Sum over sub items and chose sigma story points.

Using formulas : IF (Status = "Closed"; StoryPoints) - for closed story points

for sized Issue Count : COUNT#all {Story Points}

Total Issues : IF(itemtype = 'issue';COUNT#all{Summary} and issueType != "Epic")

Resolved Total : IF(itemtype="issue"; COUNT#all{Summary} and issueType != "Epic" and (Status = "Resolved" or Status = "Verified"))

Closed Total : IF(itemtype = "issue"; COUNT#all{Summary} and issueType != "Epic" and Status = "Closed")




Thanks for your post!

We are planning to add the ability to aggregate at the sibling level, but we are unable to communicate a timeline as to when this is going to happen. I will post here when the improvement has been released.

I'm sorry I don't have better news. Please reach out to support@almworks if you have any other additional questions.

Thank you Vlad. I will look forward to it.

You are very welcome! Sounds good! 

@Vlad-ALM Works- Hello Vlad. Has this functionality been added to the roadmap? I would also like to show a percentage of all Time Spent / Time Remaining shown on the Structure board. 


This is currently in our backlog but it's a popular request and we hope to have it scheduled soon. I will let you know once we know more. Are you looking to show a percentage from the Sum Time Spent/ Sum Remaining Estimate of your whole structure or do you mean something else?

Please feel free to elaborate on the use case so I can either recommend a Formula, if possible or share your use case with our Product Team.

Best Regards,


Thanks for the reply! The answer to your question is yes. However, I would also like to have any number-based field do this. Here is a use case:

We have a custom field that sums up days spent on all tasks in an Epic. And, I have a Structure board that shows five epics. Each epic had one day spent on them. So, total days spent as shown on the Structure board = 5.

Allow me to access the total of 5 as a variable, so that I can create a Percentage column called Percentage of Days Spent, such that each item shows 20%.

Please allow this for any built-in or custom number-based field, such as Story Points.

Please let me know if I can clarify on that use case further.

Excellent! Thank you so much for sharing your feedback. This is what we are planning for but I'll make sure to share your thoughts with our Product Team. I will reach out here once the feature has been implemented. 

If you have further questions or need additional help with Structure, please feel free to reach out to our Support Team at

Best Regards,


Hello Claudine,

I just wanted to let you know that the described calculation can be possible using the PARENT{SUM#children{ ... }} function that was added in Structure 6.0. So please feel free to try the function on this version or on a later one.

And if you need any assistance with the Formula column, please don't hesitate to contact us directly via for proper support.

Best regards,
