Thank you for your comments Tanner. Sadly the solution is not that simple. We want the time taken for the sub tasks to be logged against the story, so the "Include sub-tasks" check box needs to be ticked. We don't want the Estimated time on the story to be changed whenever a sub-task has time logged against it.
To put it another way, when we set up the story, we want to fix the estimated time at say 100 hours. Then we carry out a sub-task that takes 20 hours, so we want the logged time on the story to show 20 hours, the Estimated time to still show 100 hours and the remaining time to show 80 hours.
ahh ... i see. then here's a possible solution:
of course, you'll have to write that custom code. you can do so with script runner. great plugin, and i use it often.
