It is hard for average user to understand the meaning of calculated fields in TimeReports Gadget

Hi Time Reports for JIRA Cloud Dev,

When a TimeTracking gadget is printed on dashboard, I've understanding issue about percentages figures. What are they representing ? I tried to do some math to understand those values but it was unsuccessful. 

Can you please give some explanation ? I might lack some basic project management skills. 

Epic Name | Orig. Est. | Est. Time Remain | Time Spent | Variance | Progress
E-Name1	  |  557,17h   |     184,58h	  |  520,17h   | -147,58h |   74%

Could you please provide some brief ELI5 answers about the meaning of each fields and their calculation ?

  • Original Estimation. Seems easy. The sum of all estimated issue in an epic.
  • Est. Time Remaining. What is this ? It doesnt seems to be Orig Est minus Time Spent. How is it calculated ?
  • Time spent. Seems easy too. The sum of worklog in an epic.
  • Variance. What is this ? How is it calculated ?
  • Progress. What is this ? How is it calculated ? 

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Hi Thomas,

  • Original Estimation.  The sum of all estimated issue in an epic. Note, if Sum Sub-Tasks is checked
  • Est. Time Remaining. It's crurrent estimation in Estimate field, it may be edited, and it may be sum of all issues in the epic, if Sum Sub-Tasks is on.
  • Time spent. The sum of worklog in an epic. Yes, but it's Timespent field also.
  • Variance. Is Original Estimation - Estimated Time Remaining.
  • Progress. Is Timespent / ( Estimated Time Remaining + Timespent), so it's 100% when Estimated Time Remining is 0.

Thank you.
