Rounding of values in Agility

Q: We have certain backlogs and provided “Estimate pts” as “0.5”.  Observed that even if we move this task from Done to “Accepted”, some tables are not getting updated under “Completed”. But if we have any other task with “Estimate pts” as “1” (not having decimal point) those values are getting increased. Does it mean below field will reject decimal values and round off to lower nearest value ? 


A: We use Bankers Rounding in this specific scenario in that field. Bankers Rounding is an algorithm for rounding quantities to integers, in which numbers which are equidistant from the two nearest integers are rounded to the nearest even integer. Thus, 0.5 rounds down to 0; 1.5 rounds up to 2
