Change the default time unit to hours instead of minutes

Hello All,

Is there any script or workaround to change the "Time Tracking" field behavior. It should accept only hours in "Remaining Estimate" and "Original Estimate" fields.

We just want to be able to enter only the number and system should understand that it is in hours.

Is this possible?

Thanks in Advance,

Hi @Jakub Hanak,

Is there any chance to make this changes to only single project.

I don´t think so. You do this on a global level and there is no such an option for a project level settings. 

It affects all projects. Personally I think it's more intuitive to use hours when units are not specified in time fields.

There are bugs that prevent hours from appearing - please vote for these tickets so the issues can be fixed asap:
