How to enable Estimation for Kanban Boards
In order to enable estimation and story point value display in the Kanban board in JIRA, you'll need to perform three actions:
- Enable Agile Estimates for JIRA from the Kanban Board menu.
- Follow instructions and click Go to Configuration to open Kanban Board configuration page.
- In the JIRA Kanban Board configuration screen select Estimation and change Estimation Statistic from None to one of your desired values e.g. Story Points, Business Value or Original Time Estimate.
Next, you can go back to your Kanban board and it will look similar to the first screen in this topic.
