Effort estimation

Every task has an effort estimation field to help you plan and learn from planning. You can choose a score between 1 and 99.

That score compiles into a total effort estimation for each sprint for the team.

Consistency, that’s really the key to any method of estimation. As long as you're consistent you’ll generally get reliable results.

We’ll help you learn as you go, providing estimation warnings when you’re outsizing a sprint based on past performance.

Effort estimation should be done by the whole team at the same time whenever possible. Collaborative estimation aligns both the effort you’re estimating and how you’re estimating that effort.

 

Updating Effort Unit

Agile teams have different ways to track their effort. To enable flexibility for teams, we are introducing the ability to toggle between effort units. You navigate to the bottom left avatar, select My Workspace, and choose between DaysHours, or Story Points.

Once you’ve updated your setting, your tasks and upcoming sprints will reflect this change.

Note: Days is the default effort estimate unit.
