Total time estimated for a sprint

This is basically a duplicate entry of this questions from 2014, but 3 years have passed and I thought I give it another try:

For sprint planning, it is crucial to get the total estimated time in order to compare it to the time available in the sprint. As far as I can see, YouTrack only gives you that number for tickets that already have some Spend Time value. Even if I set the default value of Spend Time to 0, the simple sum of the estimated time is not calculated. Why? Can I see it anywhere else? Its such a simple task to sum up all the estimated times, isn't it? Is this a feature you plan to add in the near future?

*Edit*: To make this clear: We need at least a possibility to globally add a default value to the "Time Tracking" sub menu. If we could add something like "Create ticket -> 1m -> Documentation" to the "Time Tracking" sub menu, the number would be computed, but I can't find any option to add default values to that sub menu.

Regards,

Thomas

Hello Thomas, please take a look at this tutorial: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/incloud/2017.2/Time-Tracking-on-Agile-Board.html

You can configure the 'Estimation field' for the cards on your board, and then you'll see the estimations on the sprint.

Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks!
