Customizing columns (Scope Configuration)

The way data is aggregated for a given field can be modified. The available aggregation and display options will vary depending on the type of field added as a column.

A new Time tracing formula is now available: Time spent / (Time spent + Remaining estimate) *100%.

You can add the same field multiple times but with different aggregation configurations, e.g., to compare initial estimates at an Epic or Feature level with bottom-up estimates, add the story points twice, and set "sum no parent" on one of the fields.

Pay attention to the origin of a field. More information can be found on the Concept of a field page.
