The Original Estimate field is missing after creating a issue

I hope somebody can help me! 

When creating a issue there is a Original Estimate field.


But after I created the issue and wanted to edit the issue in the sitebar, I can't find the Original Estimate field. 


I need this field to add the estimated time off a issue. I can edit te Time remaining in de Time tracking But then the time wil not show in de overview of the issues 


2 days ago the Original Estimate field was displayed in the sitebar. Today it is gone. 


Can somebody help me?

Your project may be using different screens for creating, editing and viewing the issue. You can add time tracking field to your edit and view screens, too, on your project settings page. 

Selection_457.pngCheck out your screens here and add the field to them if they are missing. 





Thank you for your reaction. I checked the screens. But they all got Time Tracking. When I view or edit a issue, there is time tracking option.

Some how the original Estimate field is missing.

That's interesting because when I check our own cloud Jira, when I add time tracking field I can see the original estimate.


Maybe Atlassian is trying a new issue view again :) Because I saw the exact same question on community today again. Can you see a notification that says they are updating the issue view maybe?

Thank you for you answer. The original Estimate field is back. Every project and issue has got the field again, with out me changing anything. So my problem is solved. 


Thank you
