Drag and Drop Estimation
Drag-n-drop method allows to estimate many entities and quickly set an Effort for them from a single screen. When you move cards across columns, you change Developer's Effort for these entities. It is very intuitive and works without page reloads.
Effort field as a lane on Board views is available for User Stories, Tasks and Bugs only.
It is possible to select Effort as a lane only when all displayed items have a Role with the name Developer in the Assignments area so far. If you do not have the responsible role Developer for your items, please customize Assignments area.
Set values for Effort column
You can set your own values for the Effort lanes instead of a fixed sequence of Fibonacci numbers. Just type the effort values into the cards filter like that:
Points Effort Units Support
In short, Points are relative abstract effort units that works great for experienced agile teams. Points are a relative measure of user story size. Usually they are used with discrete scale. For example: 1,2,3,5,8,13,20. This scale means that a 5 point story has nearly twice the complexity of a 3 point story, no more. Estimation with points is easier, since you estimate-by-compare: “We’ll give this story 2 points because it seems like it’s twice as big as that 1-point story and about half as big as that 4-point story”.
It is possible to switch planning units from hours to points and vice versa.
