  1. There is no general Links column. You can add Epic link to represent Epics. Links are shown visually on the chart.
  2. It's very easy, and best done in the Resources module, though also possible on the Gantt - Resources just shiws this very clearly. You need to add Original Estimate value to this task, in addition to a start date and end date. Then the number of hours each resource works on a given task on a given day is: a simply formula: the space between start and end date is duration, and original estimate/duration is how much hours the task will be worked on each day of the duration.

Just as an exmaple, a task starting on the 1st, ending on the 11th has 10 days of duration. With 100 hours of original estimate, it will be 10 hours of work each day.

Thanks Matthew,

and another question if you can please.

Can I automatically set Start Date when Issue Status is changed to "In Progress" ?


Currently not, ie status does not affect the start date. However, if you add an issue without its start date specified, it will take the position of the create's date, and issues in different statuses are color-coded.
