If I pull up a task for a particular project there is a field called original estimate. The only place I can find the original estimate is in the Tfs_Warehouse database in the
FactWorkItemHistory table under the
Can someone clarify how this value works? The reason I ask is it changes in the FactWorkItemHistory table for the same task. There are some positive entries and negative entries. If I sum up all of the
Microsoft_VSTS_Scheduling_OriginalEstimate values by Task and ProjectNodeSK I come up with the amount that shows up in the TFS task UI. I'm just wondering why the value changes over entries. In fact, I also would be curious as to why there are multiple WorkItem entries for the same task. I figured (incorrectly) that the WorkItem table would be a one to one as far as the Task in the TFS UI goes.
