Hi all. Happy New Year!
Is there a way I can get aggregates of aggregates (for example, in a card tree). I’d like to use Task cards and link them to Story cards. I’d like each of those Task cards to have an effort estimate in hours upon which I can create an aggregate estimate calculation per Story to get total hours of all tasks per Story. That, I believe, I can do now in v2.1 of Mingle. I believe I can also use that newly created aggregate calculation (at the Story level) in other calculations at the Story level (for example, I can divide that hour total number by X to get an estimate of days of effort as opposed to hours for each Story).
What I am not sure about, however, is what I want to do next. I want to be able to link stories (which, remember, now have tasks with estimates in hours associated with them) to iterations and then also have aggregate calculations at the iteration level (total hours for all stories in that iteration, for example). I don’t think there’s a way I can currently do that in Mingle (but that’d be a GREAT addition to the tool).
Does anyone have recommendations for how to address this need?
