Estimate field is missing from Scrum Board

When I'm trying to create a Sprint, I don't see the Estimate field even though I enabled Time Tracking in JIRA and set Log Work, Time Tracking fields under my Screen.

See the attached image, there is only Remaining field which is useless in Plan mode.

Go to Board > Configure then click the Estimation tab

Change the Estimation Statistics from Story Points to Original Time Estimate, then the Remaining Estimate and Time Spent radio button

More details on that here:

Hope this helps!

I see no Estimation tab at Board > Configure?

Click "..." ->Board Settings

Click Estimation in nav bar

Make adjustments mentioned above

... -> Board Settings 
I don't have any  Tab, menu or button called "Estimation" 

Board > Configure?


Is that meant to be board ->project settings?  In any case, can't find estimation field not even under issue type default fields.

No, it's Board -> Configure

You need to start with a look at the board configuration to check that the board is using "estimate" for its statistics on the estimation settings tab.

Then you need to make sure the board configuration tells the issue view to include the time tracking field
