Estimate for subtasks

I'm evaluating JIRA. I have created an issue with subtask. For the issue I can enter an estimate value but I have no fields where I can enter an estimate value for the subtasks.

When I try to start a sprint, I get a warnung "Issues xxx and yyy do not have a value for the 'Estimate' field. Values entered after the start of the sprint will be treated as scope change."

I have setup "Estimation Statistic" to "Original Tine Estimate".

PS: Version 7.1.7

you can add timetracking field to the create screen of your subtask screen scheme. that way you can enter original estimate value for the subtask too.
