Calculate issue estimates using subtask estimates

    • Feedback Policy:

      JIRA feedback is collected from a number of different sources and is evaluated when planning the product roadmap. If you would like to know more about how JIRA Product Management uses customer input during the planning process, please see our post on Atlassian Answers.

      Description

      A problem we currently have to workaround is the fact that we sometimes log high-level features that we then split into many smaller tasks, which we then link using a "subtask" link. I'm certain many companies do something similar.

      The problem is that since for JIRA links are meaning-less, effort estimated on the high-level task won't be kept up-to-date with the effort involved in subtasks, etc.

      In order to workaround this problem we have to specify quite a complex procedure for our developers.

      If instead JIRA detected (or defined) this "subtask" links between issues, it would know it needs to add/substrack effort accordingly, etc.. and it would save developers & managers the effort.
