Display Time In Hours Not Weeks

Usually we display the not started (original estimate), in progress, and done bubbles in hours for our sprints. Today when I logged on the time was displayed in weeks. The only help article I could find was this: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver070/configuring-time-tracking-749383509.html however when I look at my settings time tracking is turned on, and the settings are set to hours "Time estimates will be displayed in the following format: hours (e.g. 36.5h)", "The current default unit for time tracking is hour."

Is there any other setting to change the time back to hours and not weeks?

Hello Alix,

Did you ever find a resolution to your issue? I am experiencing the same behavior on my cloud instance - the time has always been displayed in total hours, and now it is displaying in weeks. I have checked our configuration and no changes have been made.


Have you added any plugins or add-ons recently that may have interfered?
