The field that enables:

  1. Remaining Estimate
  2. Time Spent
  3. Original Estimate

is Time Tracking.

You can choose whether or not to show the three of them, with no more granularity than that.

You can hide Time Tracking by any of these methods:

  • removing this field from the screens set on your project(s)
  • hiding this field from the Field Configuration set on your project(s)
  • disabling Time Tracking totally on your instance:

Thanks for your quick answer.

I appreciate that.

Can you please provide the navigation for reaching Time Tracking

Sure:

Cog Icon > Issues > Time Tracking

Thanks.

 

But I did not see navigation to disable "Remaining Estimate" field on time tracking page of your screen shot. Can you please elaborate the navigations

You cannot disable just "Remaining Estimate", but the three Time Tracking fields at once.

That's true no mattering which of the three methods you follow (screens, field configuration or Time Tracking total disablement).

It makes no sense to show the remaining estimate on a story.  It makes sense to have the remaining sum roll up but not the remaining estimate.  Hours are meant for sub-tasks not stories. 

But it can be very useful to see how long it might take.

That is what the remaining sum is telling you.
