This page describes how to participate in a Scrum Poker session.
Once you have joined a Scrum Poker session you can see the Scrum Poker session page. This page is divided horizontally into two sections:
The process of a Scrum Poker session normally looks like this:
All participants can choose from the cards listed under the heading
Scrum Poker by clicking on the card that reflects their estimate.
While moving your mouse cursor over the cards previous Scrum Poker sessions you have participated in are shown to let you compare the new issue with other issues with the same estimate.
As you can see in the screenshot above when you have chosen a card it is highlighted and your name appears in the list of participants where the chosen card values are not shown to other participants yet.
Once all participants have provided their estimate the cards can be revealed by clicking on the
Scrum Poker for Jira will then show the
Range of votes and mark all participants in the
Participants list who provided a vote for an estimate on the boundaries of all estimates.
This can be seen as an invitation to talk about their reason for choosing that estimate.
If all participants agree on an estimate one participant can confirm the estimate in clicking on the card in the
Range of votes list.
This saves the chosen estimate on the issue and informs all participants about the completed estimation process.
If the feature
Estimation Permission Check (see Scrum Poker configuration) is enabled users who have no edit rights for the given issue see all estimations in the
Range of votes grayed out.
Only those users who are allowed to save the estimation for that issue see blue clickable estimation cards to confirm the estimation.
