Show sum of time columns
I would like the bottom line of the structure widget to also show the sum of remaining estimates for all (shown) issues in the structure.
For example, I have a structure with issues for our next release. I would like to enter a filter like "fixVersion=<currentSprint>" to see issues assigned to the current sprint, how they are spread across overall plan, and also see the remaining estimates for the sprint.
The bottom already say something like "Showing 25 issues (100 issues are not shown)", so there's quite enough space to say "Showing 25 issues (10 weeks remaining) | 100 issues are not shown".
Martin - good idea. That can work at the cost of cluttering JIRA with a 'meta' issue. Looks like a reasonable work-around.

Create a "meta" issue, then place all those issues under the meta issue. The "total remaining estimate" column for the meta issue will display the total. ;)
The workaround for now is to export to Excel and do a sum there - it's really quick.
Vladimir, thanks - that's an interesting idea.
I can think of several ways to approach it - we can add another row at the bottom with totals for every numeric/duration column, or we can do this summing only for the remaining estimate (which will not make sense if time tracking is not used).
We'll see how this fits development plan and other features.
