Parent checkbox in the work-items-role-enum screen

Can anyone explain the purpose of the parent check box in the work-items-role-enum screen? The administration manual skips it when it describes the screen. I've tried linking WIs with and without it checked and I don't see any difference.

Hi,

Particularly, It's used in planning - if item is child, its estimates are assumed to be part of the parent's estimate.

Best regards,
Nick

I also have played with this checkbox as well as the 'Default' checkbox substantially and have not found they change anything with linking relationships
