With the Time Estimates Rollup turned on, you can make tasks display the sum of all time estimates from the parent task and any subtasks.

For example:

  • Task: 1 hour

  • Subtask: 1 hour

  • Another subtask: 30 minutes

The time shown on the task will be the sum of these: 2 hours 30 minutes.

Time Estimates Rollup works seamlessly with Time Estimates per Assignee.

See Time Estimates Rollup on views

You can add Time Estimates as a column or field on the following views.

  • List view

  • Calendar view

  • Table view

  • Gantt view

When showing subtasks separately in List view, tasks will not include rolled up time estimates.

In List and Table views, you can use Column Calculations to show the sum, average, or range of time estimates for your tasks. The calculation will include rolled up time estimates.

Time Estimates are not rolled up in Box and Workload views because each task and individual subtasks are treated separately to calculate capacity.
