Time reports

After working with YouTrack's time tracking functionality (hadn't used it before), I have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to see when (on what date) all tasks will be complete, given the current burndown rate (average for some configurable number of recent days)? I can kind of estimate it by playing with Burndown chart date range, but having a better indication would be helpful.

2. Is it possible to see burndown vs estimate rate? Basically, we have new issues coming it, we have old issues worked on and closed, and I'd like to see if we're closing them faster than they come in. Built-in reports (like reported vs fixed) only work for issue counts, not for time estimates.

3. Is it possible to see the total number of estimated, spent and remaining hours for all tasks in a current query (as opposed to a sprint)?

1. I believe, that Gantt chart will be perfect for this: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/standalone/7.0/Gantt-Chart.html .

2. If I understand you correctly, cumulative flow on the agile board should help with this request.

3. No, unfortuantely, it's not possible. Please vote/comment for the issue in our tracking system to increase it's priority and be notified about updates:

Thank you very much for your response!

1. It's very close, with one major difference: it assumes that people would work on tasks with exactly 100% efficiency, and that tasks are estimated 100% correctly. Taking recent performance (number of hours worked per week as well as an estimated/actual spent time for past issues) would allow for a more accurate estimate. Hope something like this would get implemented one day - would you like me to file a feature request for that, or is that too far-fetched to expect?

2. It kind of does, only it also shows issue counts as opposed to estimated/spent times. It's ok, I'll live with that.

3. Upvoted, thanks for the link.
