Total time spent on child work items at a parent level

Is it possible to have the sum of all times spent on individual child workitems grouped , added and displayed under a parent task. This will really help in tracking the total hours put in by teams during SCRUM process implemented using Polarion.

Please let me know of any possibility to achieve this.

Hello Ramesh,

this is where "Calculated fields" of Polarion may be configured (see corresponding editor in the 'Administration/WorkItems/Calculated Fields' and in the online help).

E.g.
<calculated-fields>

<calculated-field id="timeSpent">
<sum>
<childField>timeSpent</childField>
</sum>
</calculated-field>

<calculated-field id="remainingEstimate">

<sum>
<childField>remainingEstimate</childField>
</sum>
</calculated-field>

</calculated-fields>

Best regards,
Nick

Thanks Nick,

That was simple thing I was missing. To enable Parent option in the work-role enumeration XML file.
Now it is working like a charm. Thank you for your support.
