Defining a task estimation is necessary if you want planless.io prediction engine to be able to define the amount of work needed for this task.
If you don't specify any estimation, you'll get a warning on the left side of the concerned task line:
You can define estimations in 2 places:
- Directly on the task list on the concerned task's line
- In the Task details panel
In both cases, the first field is the minimum amount of effort and the second and last one for the maximum amount of effort.
These fields express the effort in hours but you can use special shortcuts to input minutes or days:
- To enter minutes, enter for example "15m" and when you focus out the field, the value would be transformed in "0.25".
- For days, enter for example "2d" and the value would change to "16". Planless.io assumes one day to be 8 hours.
