Rekall - Agile Estimation Tools

Does your team exhibit one or more of these symptoms?

  • Velocity fluctuating greatly from sprint to sprint
  • Arguing a lot during planning poker sessions on the size of a story
  • Rarely succeeding to complete a larger user story during a sprint

If so, than your team might need to use Triangulation to estimate their user stories. Triangulation, sometimes also called Benchmarking, is the process of comparing one user story with two others in order to determine if the story is similar, smaller or bigger.

The Rekall plugin for Jira and its JIRA Agile plugin allows you to use triangulation to estimate the user stories via a simple drag and drop interface. It will show your previously executed stories, grouped by story points and sorted out by the time spent executing them so that estimation is easier and more accurate.

Rekall also offers you a Statistics Board that can help a team figure out and correct bad estimation practices. Moreover, the Statistics Board can help a Product Owner or management to understand estimation in Story Points.

To learn more about Triangulation and its benefits, to know how Rekall's Triangulation Board works or to have a peek at Rekall's roadmap, please consult our website.

Note: Rekall requires that the JIRA Agile plugin be installed.

This is a wonder tool! We're using it for triangulation of both unestimated items, as well as a quick review during sprint planning. Sure, there's room to iterate - especially to deal w large backlogs - add filters, add a detail view, but the concept is sound and useful. We look forward to the next version....

My team trialed Rekall for a month. It's a decent basic plugin that has a lot of work to do: -Filters! our project has multitude of components. Using Rekall is a nightmare without filtering which components we're currently estimating -We use sub-tasks extensively. We want it supported too Keep it up. Looking forward to new versions.

Vendor response

Hi Mohamed,

Thank you for leaving your feedback. We have, in our backlog, an issue regarding filters. We should be working on this in upcoming releases. For smaller backlogs, Rekall should be working well but filters will help with larger backlogs for sure. One question, we were planning on using the Rapid Board's quick filters. However, this would only apply to the first column, i.e. the backlog column. Do you expect the filter to also filter the issues in the last 3 columns?

Finally, most teams estimate sub-tasks in hours and thus don't really need to compare them. This is is why sub-tasks are not taken into account in Rekall. Can you give us more feedback on how you expect to use Rekall with sub-tasks?

Regards

Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

How do upgrades and renewals work?

You can upgrade your Atlassian host product license to increase the user tier for add-on licenses any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula, and are automatically reflected in your cart. View an example of the JIRA upgrade price matrix here.

Add-on licences for downloaded Atlassian products are perpetual. Your original purchase includes 12 months of maintenance. To continue receiving upgrades and support after the initial 12 months, you can renew your maintenance for 50% of the original purchase price. You can purchase maintenance for up to 36 additional months at any time.

OnDemand add-on subscriptions renew each month and can be canceled any time.

How do I determine my pricing tier?

Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA download license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

What's the difference between OnDemand and download pricing?

Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

OnDemand:
Subscriptions renew every month
Add-ons and instances are hosted by Atlassian
Download:
Licenses last forever, support and upgrades last for 12 months
Instances and add-ons are hosted on your servers
Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

Do you offer enterprise pricing?

Choose enterprise pricing if your Atlassian host application is billed for enterprise licenses.

Enterprise pricing includes 24/7 phone and email support, access to training through Atlassian University, and other perks. Learn more.

Can I extend my free trial?

You can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times – in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

Alternatively, if you remove your expiring trial license from your Atlassian host application, you can re-add it back for another free trial.

What are legacy pricing tiers?

If you bought your Atlassian host application during or before February 2012, you qualify for legacy pricing tiers.

  • JIRA tiers are 10, 25, 50, and 100 users. The legacy unlimited tier was 100+ users.
  • The Confluence legacy tiers are 10, 25, 50, 100, 500, and 2000 users. The unlimited legacy tier was 2000+ users.
  • There are no enterprise licenses prior to and including February 2012.
