Estimation field

Available options are:

  • Story points

  • Issue count

  • any number field available in Jira, e.g. Business value

Time unit

Available when estimation field is set to Time Estimate.

Time values can be displayed in:

  • Hours

  • Days - number of hours per day is based on Jira Time Tracking configuration.

Forecast settings

In this section, you can adjust how the completion forecast is calculated.

By default, the forecast is calculated for the following velocities:

  • Max velocity

  • Average velocity

  • Min velocity

Those velocities are automatically calculated based on the last completed sprints. The number of completed sprints is defined in the Sprint count option.

As values and complete dates of the built-in velocities are calculated automatically their values are displayed as 'auto'.

The completion date can be calculated based on a custom velocity value.

If you provide the desired completion date the required velocity to achieve that goal will be calculated.





Interval count

The number of intervals to calculate Min, Max and Average automatic velocities which are used in forecast calculation.

Remaining work

The remaining work is automatically calculated as a sum of all not completed issues.

You can adjust this value to check how it affects the completion date.

Remaining work growth per interval

Change remaining work amount on an interval basis to simulate scope change in the future.
