I'm taking over managing an in-progress project.
All of the known tasks to complete the project have been logged in Jira.
We have estimates from the team for all the tasks - but none of this info has been entered in JIRA in the "Estimated" time field.
Some of the tasks already have time logged and the team have put "Remaining" effort in as a proxy for the original estimate. Unfortunately this means I can't use Time Tracking Report in JIRA, PLUS, whenI look at an individual task, I can't see if the original estimate has been exceeded because it shows a "Remaining" time of 0.
Is it possible to add an 'Original Estimate' to JIRA task or sub-task after it has been created and time logged against it?
Thanks, but how do I actually set the "Original Estimate" for a task that has already been created? Where do I go?
When I open the individual Jira, and click on the "+" next to the "Time Tracking" section header (see image blow), the pop up dialog box (see 2nd image) allows me to enter Remaining Estimate but not the "Original Estimate"?
