Calculate issue estimates using subtask estimates


    • We collect Jira feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      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.
