Topic sizing

Overview

You can assign a size to a topic as a helpful shorthand for your team to see and remember how much work the topic is estimated to entail.
Topic sizing is completely optional. You can assign sizes to some topics and not others, and you can completely disable topic sizing in workspaces where it's not helpful to your team's work style.
Flat comes out-of-the-box with two common sizing schemes:
  • T-shirt sizes: x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, xx-large
  • Fibonacci points: 1pt, 2pts, 3pts, 5pts, 8pts, 13pts, 20pts, 40pts, 100pts
Need a different sizing scheme? Contact us. Flat supports arbitrary topic sizing schemes, but they're not currently configurable in Admin Settings.

Step-by-step

Changing a topic's size

To change a topic's size:
  • While on the topic's page: Select a size from the dropdown at the top of the page.
  • While in the workspace: Use Quick edit.
