Option to switch from task estimation to task state monitoring

We are not estimating our tasks on a hourly base.

 

For us a task is a portion of work which should not last longer than a working day.

Each daily stand up a task is in the "In Work" state it is marked with a red dot.

If one task has 3 red dots it is treated as team impediment and all team members join there forces to complete the task.

 

So for us it would be helpful to have a project related option to deactivate / hide all task estimation based fields / information and enable a task state monitoring like the one described above.

Sounds like you are tracking the WIP and in case a task takes longer then a day, you want to be alerted in order to take action?

Kind of...

 

It's not like in KANBAN where you care about the number of tasks that are currently in work (the WIP). In fact we track the number of days (Daily Standups) a task is in the "in Progress" swimline of the task board by marking it with a red dot for each daily standup. And only if a tasks gets its 3rd red dot an alert is needed.
