Import Effort for User Stories, Tasks, Bugs, Requests
It’s possible to import both the total effort for multiple roles and the effort for a single role, depending on how many responsible roles you’ve got for an entity.
Let’s say, you have User Story with two responsible roles: Developer and Tester. In this case, the effort is split. For example, you want to import a User Story that has 12 hrs of effort in total, but the Developer effort is 7 hrs and the Tester effort is 5 hrs.
You should enter the effort in the following format:
(Developer) 7, (Tester) 5
The general format is:
(role) effort value, (role) effort value, (role) effort value
For a single responsible role, just enter the effort value:
Here is an example of how you can import a User Story and several Tasks. Note that User Story has two roles: Developer and QA Engineer
If there are two responsible roles for a User Story, be sure to specify effort for both the roles in the Effort column, otherwise Effort will not be imported.
