# Viewing estimates in an Iteration Plan

 0 Stephanie Walter (6●1●1) | asked Oct 27 '09, 5:25 p.m. Is there a way to view the estimates associated with the work items for each story in an Iteration Plan? I want to see both estimates for tasks and the sum of these estimates for each story. Right now I can only see estimates for Enhancements and Defects. 'Story' is the only Top Level Plan Item Type.

'Story' is the onlyTop Level Plan Item Type.Right, top level types do not show estimates but complexity, e.g. story point. Still, there a plan column called Progress. It will show progress based on the children of a story, e.g 7/14h which means that 7 out of a total of 14h of work are done.-- Cheers, JohannesAgile Planning Team

I need to provide a "report" of our top stories along with their estimates.

I added a screen capture of how to edit a view mode to show progress and estimates.-- Cheers, JohannesAgile Planning Team
