Display the hours to do per user

Currently on the sprint whiteboard screen, the claimed task column displays the total hours for all users. I would like some means to view the hours to do per user here.

This information is very useful during sprint planning to alert users who are claiming more hours than the sprint allows.

This information could also be displayed on the dashboard. I.e. The total hours work claimed could be displayed in each user area under the "Teams current work" section.


Issue is closed.

Wouldn't it be a better practice to claim only one task at once?

sto182 could help solving this, too.

It has to be said that the sum if hours in the columns of the Whiteboard is by no means a central information.

The problem with your proposal is twofold:

  1. Kunagi is not a good time tracker. This has been the subject of many Issues in the past. We do not see an elegant way out of this problem, however, so it is very unlikely that we will try to change that.
  2. Claiming Tasks should not be understood as work assignment, but as the current state of the work on the current Sprint. Specifically, Team Members should claim Tasks no sooner than they actually start working on them.

There are some concrete follow-up problems, for example the representation of Pair Programming. Currently, we would encourage people to have one Team Member claim the Task and enter twice the time to the burned hours. Other possibilities can be thought of, but given the solution I described, a feature like you propose could not acurately understand or represent what's going on.
