Updating and calculating the progress rate (percent done)

Basic method for updating the progress rate 

Click % Done to open Edit mode. Then you can either click the up/down arrows or directly enter a value.

However you cannot edit the progress rate for:

  • A project or version

  • Issues in gray color

Auto-calculating parent issue progress rate 

You may want to synchronize the progress rate between parent and child issues. This would mean, for example, that when the progress rate of a child issue is 100%, the parent issue's progress rate will also be 100%. You can do this with Auto-calculate percent done.

The calculation of the progress rate is based on time spent and duration. For example

  • Issue A has a duration of 1 day with 100% done

  • Issue B has a duration of 2 days with 50% done

The total progress rate of parent issue would be:

(100% * 1 day + 50% * 2 days) / (1 day + 2 days) = 66% (Decimals are rounded down)

There is a special case.

  • The progress rate of the parent ticket is calculated as 100%

  • However, there is a child ticket with a blank duration and progress rate < 100%

In this scenario, the parent's progress rate will be adjusted to 99%
