Time remaining calculation is incorrect

I have a task...

  • Original Estimate:  3d 1h
  • Time Spent:  3d 2h
  • Time Remaining:  1d 6h

It should show 0h or -1h remaining ... help...

Ah, no.   Estimated = 3d 1h.  That's not the original estimate, it's the current.  1d 6h left to go, and logged 3d 2h.  Have a look at the history, you should see the original esttmate is 4d 7h.

The time remaining is not always calculated based on Estimated - Logged. You have an option to update the time remaining when a time is logged (i.e. because the original estimate may not always be accurate).

Check the history tab to see if "Time remaining" was manually altered or not.
