Estimated time field

I want to set up the estimated time of a task. But, if I establish the estimate time in the sprint board, I don't see this estimated value on the task detail.


I tried set up in the screens configuration, in the issues configuration and I don't see this parameter to assign it.


Also, I created a custom field, I assigned to the screen but it doesn't work also.


So, I want to know how can I set up the estimated time of a taks with the objective of register a value on that field and have the analysis between the estimated, remain and logged time.

Make sure you add the Time Tracking fields to your screens. Those fields are built-in from JIRA, no needs for custom field.

If you manually edit your issue, can you edit the Estimates?

Yes I can, but I don't know how to set the Estimated Time, as you can see in the last image, there is as "Not specified".

Would you happen to be at the summit right now? I could debug this with you if you have the time. 

It seems to me that it's a misconception or misconfiguration, the steps are pretty straightforward: 

- Add Time Tracking to the screens (make sure its the official time tracking, not a custom created one)

- Make sure you board as the Estimation configured properly (go in Configure Board)

That's it ... you should get your estimates.
