Jira Automation docs have moved

All content related to Jira Cloud Automation, previously under the Automate your Jira processes and workflows section, have moved to the new Cloud Automation docs.

Go to Cloud Automation documentation | Why did we do this?

Change estimation units in your plan

This page refers to Advanced Roadmaps, which is a cross-project planning tool only available as part of Jira Software Cloud Premium and Enterprise.

We have a separate section for documentation about the project roadmap that’s included in all Jira Software plans. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira Software.

 

You can choose which unit to use when estimating issues in your plan. Estimation for issues can be based on time (hours or days) or story points.

To change the estimation units in your plan:

  1. From the Roadmap view, navigate to settings using the  next to your plan name > Configure.

  2. In the Scheduling tab, select whether you’d like your plan to be estimated in HoursDays, or Story Points.

Story points and time-based estimates (hours and days) are not interchangeable. For this reason, changing this setting will erase any issue estimations not already saved to your issues in Jira.
