Showing an aggregated effort estimation for work item hierachies


Julian Jung (111) | asked Feb 13 '13, 1:01 p.m.
Dear Community,

is it possible to fill or update the effort estimation of a work item which has work item children based on the accumulated effort of the children?

Say I have work item A which has children B and C.
B has an estimation of 8h, C of 4h.
I would now like to see that the work item A has a total effort estimation of 12h.

Is anything like this possible? Are there (better) alternatives to this approach?

Thanks in advance,
Julian

 Julian, have you looked into the planning component. There is a roll up of efforts for execution items to plan items. The values are calculated on line in the plan and not work item attributes.
