Add "Time Remaining" Column

Justin Mosebach

There's a "Time Estimate" and a "Time Spent" column, but you have to do mental math to figure out how much time is left (or was overspent) on a task/subtask.

The new "Time Remaining" column would take the "Time Estimate" minus the "Time Spent".

I really need this!

Would be nice to have this in the calculate dashboard widget as well

Serge van der Krieken

It should also have the calculate function (like sum). This already exists for time estimates etc.

This would be extremely useful! The current workaround doesn't really solve this.

Native Time Left For Task Field

J

Josh Boshers

It would be very useful to have a native field for Time left for a task. (Time Estimate - Time Tracked) While this is possible using a formula, the workload view and dashboards cannot report on formula type fields. Adding this feature could really empower teams to view live workload as things change in a dynamic working environment.

I see a lot of feedback from the clickup team saying that custom formulas "solve" this issue, but I want to point out that while they're an okay-ish workaround they are far from the solution that would be needed.

My main use case is for sprints:

* If I have a very large task, for example a 30h task, that spans across multiple sprints, I don't want the sprint dashboard cards (burnup, burndown, velocity, etc.) to add 30h to each sprint when 29 of the 30 hours have already been completed in previous sprints... it should use time remaining instead of time estimates

* Same for the teams view (if you use the "calculate by time estimate" mode). It often shows that I assigned a person 100h of work, when in reality 30h of that is just from some old task that is 99% complete

* Same for the workload view.

David Nagli: This would make life so much simpler. All the info exist so it should be used in workload view also! And so on.

Would be amazing if there was a way to have this in a scenario where a task has multiple assignees and different time estimates for each.

For example:

Anna and John are both assigned to a task.

John's time estimate is 5 hours, and he has already tracked 1h.

Anna's time estimate is 3 hours and she has tracked 2h.

Ideally, there would be a way to see that Anna has 1 hour remaining,

John has 4h left and the task as a whole has 5h.

HOW TO ADD A TIME REMAINING COLUMN LIKE CLICKUP WEBSITE EXAMPLE?

M

Matheus Silva

On ClickUp home page, we can see a print of a finance table with a time remaining column showing days or hours that are remaining till due date. That would be an awesome thing to have on ClickUp, i have tried to find out how to do it using formulas, but it seems a bit limited. I could only manage to show the days left, but couldnt find any way to display the hours if days left are < 1

Does anyone know if it is possible to reach a result like on this print of click up home page?

Caroline Ginty

Hi Matheus Silva - there is an open FR to provide more flexibility in displaying 'Time Remaining' for fractions of days - I'll merge this one in! In the meantime, you can use a Formula to display the days left as an integer.

Hi all - updating this status as of March 2023. While we know there are workarounds for this use case today using Formula fields, we'd still like to better support this use case and will continue to track it as part of our Formulas enhancements work slated for this year.

Dani

Caroline Ginty it's been an entire year. Any updates? This feels really strange to be missing.
