Agile CodeResort

We have considered adding 'Agile' features to CodeResort for a long time - estimation, burndown charts, sprints and so on. We have evaluated, tested and coded, but as we operate a hosted service with many projects from many organisations we cannot make any general assumption about 'method' usage. No single best-practice method can be enforced onto the thousands of developers that use CodeResort.

What we have decided on is a simple, general, non-obtrusive, optional implementation that:

  1. Adds a 'remaining' field to Tickets.
  2. Allows it to be queried with inplace edit.
  3. Allows it to be charted as status and as progress over time.

For any grouping of tickets, using any grouping/selection available in Ticket Query, the change in 'remaining' over time can be tracked to produce a nice Burndown view that can be embedded anywhere inside the project:

Example Burndown chart.

Curious? For all the details of configuration and use, see HelpUser/Estimation - also always available in the 'Help' section from inside your projects.
