    Hi Ronnie,

    Thank-you for reaching out! 

    This is something we considered implementing in the past. However, automating this calculation would cause the Burndown charts and other metrics in Devops to display incorrect data. For example, in a scenario where Epics > Features > PBIs are organised in hierarchical order, this mechanisms would cause the Burndown to decrease by three hours for each hour logged against a certain PBI. This is because the rollup logic would cause that same hour to count against the PBI, its parent item (the Feature) and the parent of its parent (the Epic). 

    Because of these limitations we generally advise our customers to perform their data manipulation at the API level instead. Alternatively, you can find this information on our Reporting page or on the WI time tab. 

    Kind Regards,
