Do not see the option for Estimate under Board

I am following this tutorial by the letter and do not see the option for "Estimate" under the "Board" menu.

I have confirmed that I am definitely an administrator of the project under Users and Roles.

Can you provide a screenshot of where you are looking for?

I've had similar issues, you may have to add that question to the screen you're using.

Which tutorial is it as well?

I cannot add story points either.

Is the estimate/story point field on the edit screen for the issues you are looking at?

My apologies.  Operator Error!  I forgot the Story Points are added from the issue view.

Although the word Estimate appears to be inactive, there is a hidden text box only visable on mouse-over where the points are added.

The tutorial could have been a little clearer on that point.
