Estimation Board (Legacy)

Note: We recommend using the new Estimation Board app in place of this one.

The Estimation Board app provides a view of unaccepted stories, defects, and defect suites organized by plan estimate sizes. Default sizes are provided when you first add the app. You can customize the sizes for the app by updating the settings under the App Tools menu.

Estimation Board (Legacy)


The Estimation Board allows for:

  • Drag-and-drop controls to quickly change the plan estimate of a story or defect
  • Filtering cards by type
  • Direct links to stories and defects
  • Custom settings for plan estimate sizes
  • Use the Auto Height setting to automatically adjust the vertical space of the app based on the amount of visible data

Some stories and defects will be sized where their plan estimates do not exactly match the size column. They are either too small for the larger size or too large for the smaller size. These stories and defects do not have their planned estimates auto-updated to the size of the column on display. They will be auto-updated when dragged to another size.


  • If you have manual ranking enabled, you will not be able to use drag-and-drop re-ranking within a state.
  • Any work items with a Schedule State of Accepted will not display on the board.


To customize the sizes, select App Tools, Settings. Sizes require a column name and plan estimate value. Add a new size by selecting the Add link. Delete a size by selecting the Delete link to the right of the size. Select Save to keep your changes.
