Effort Templates

Up your Agile game working on projects creating better and accurate estimate methods for tasks so you can finish work quickly. You can build different efforts for tasks, so you better understand each task complexity, planning your teamwork based on expertise and skills to get more things done smoothly.

Different efforts for different projects
Creating and using different effort measurement forms for each type of project and tasks you work on using Effort Templates, it’s easy and straightforward.
Best efforts Better estimates
Increase your level of precision in estimating how long tasks can be done by applying the right effort estimate model for projects and your task.
Fibonacci, points, t-shirt sizes?
Use different and most popular Agile methods to estimate and predict the effort needed to work and finish your projects with your team.

Template if the task is a “cat” level of difficulty or an “angry lion” level of difficulty!

Use Template for your efforts on creating tasks based on sizes, points, percentages, and more. For example, to illustrate how long it will take to work and finish a task.

Whether you do, plan poker, create user stories, and distribute tasks for each team member, creating templates for your project’s task effort makes the estimated work simpler than guessing the time to finish the task.

Another thing. It is fun to develop more creative and exciting measurement types, describe and estimate the simplicity or complexity of each task, create a template, and use it in all your projects.

Make estimates more tangible to finish the project using templates for your efforts.

Use better estimates for tasks, understand the reality of moving your projects to the finish line with accuracy, and make templates of measurement forms to predict better how long tasks can be completed and projects finished.

White Label + Unlimited Users

Add unlimited users (clients and teammates) to manage your projects and track progress.

Effort based on reality
Use effort templates better describing the challenge of working on each task. Easy, medium, hard, S, M, XXL, 1- 100 pts, you name it!
Better Task management
Whether you like to start with the most difficult or easy tasks, now you can evaluate that easier, using the best template for task efforts on projects.
Better teamwork management
Be smarter and specific on delivering each task your team can work on based on skill and each task challenge level you can describe on your task effort templates.
What is an effort?
In Agile, the effort is a more accurate estimate measurement form to predict how long it will take to finish your projects, rather than using estimates to complete work based on time.
What types of effort estimates can I use to work on my tasks?
Understanding the Fibonacci scale (1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21) is a great way to start to do estimates to complete the tasks with your team. Another method that can be used to define the right task for the most competent team member to finish the task is using T-shirt sizes (S, M, L, XXL). T-shirt sizes are great because each size needs to fit the knowledge and skill one has to work on with efficiency. You can do both of them as a template to use in your project boards.
Where to use the effort templates I create for my projects?
After you create the Effort template for your projects on project settings, all you have to do is select the template to estimate the effort for each task inside the workflow. When you access the project boards, create your workflow tasks, click on the task block, you already can mention the effort that will take
In what part of the project my effort estimates is playing a role?
While distributing tasks among your team, planning the task distribution in a planning poker session, your team comes up with the estimates for how long it takes to work on a task (here’s where your estimate model plays a part). As humans, we are awfulFor example, easy to predict the effort to complete a task based on time. That’s why we estimate tasks with more tangible things like object sizes. Then we distribute the task for each team member with a better understanding of the work complexity level, making more accurate predictions to define deadlines for work completion.
Why is creating effort templates necessary?
If you don’t want to get in trouble giving a challenging task for a team member with a low level of skill to work on, or wasting time finding that your task will take longer to complete than your deadline based on time guesses, having a template for better forms of estimates handy is a great idea. You can select a different template with a further estimate form if the one you choose isn’t working.
How many templates can I create for task efforts?
You can create an unlimited number of effort templates for your estimates and use them on your project boards and workflow as you wish. Do different effort templates for each project. Use only one effort template as an estimated base for all your projects.
