How Do Stories Get Estimated?

  • The developers will estimate how many story points it will take to complete a story. 
  • Stories are usually estimated in the Icebox.
  • If there are more than 5 unestimated stories in the Icebox, you should label the ones that you wish to have estimated with "estimate" before your weekly project meetings.
  • Once the story has been estimated, the number of story points will show up on the left side of that story.
  • Please see the FAQ: What is a Story Point? for more information about how points work.
