How can I make the Original Estimate field mandatory


The Original Estimate and the Remaining Estimate fields are in the screens, but they do not apear neither in the Custom Fields, nor in the Field Configration.

Now, I want to make the Original Estimate field mandatory and need advice how to do it.


Thanks and best regards

Hi Peter

The Original Estimate and Remaining Estimate are part of a composite custom field called Time Tracking. This field is available within the Field Configuration and also for Conditions/Validators in Workflows. However, be careful to consider how you are going to handle any issues which do not have a time element if you make the field mandatory.

Hope this helps.
