How can I disable the "Original estimate" and "Remaining estimate" fields

I would like to disable/remove the "Original estimate" and "Remaining estimate" fields when logging work. We use Jira as more of a time tracking tool and these fields don't offer a lot of value. Is there a way to do that?

you mean you want to disable worklog?if yes then check this this document

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Time+Tracking

another way is using javascript you can hide those two options,

try with this by adding in footer.jsp or you can add it in any plugin as web resource

<script type="text/javascript">  
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
		hideField();
	});
	
	hideField();
function hideField(){
	var remainEst=document.getElementsByName("adjustEstimate");
		for ( var x = 0; x < remainEst.length; x++) {
				remainEst[x].hide();
				(or)
				remainEst[x].closest('div.field-group').hide();
		}
		
	$("timetracking").closest('div.field-group').hide();
	
}
});
</script>

No, I mean that I want people to be able to log the work that they do against a task but I don't want them to have to enter a "Remaining estimate" or "Original estimate" when they log time.

you can do it bby using JS check my answer i have updated

We run Jira OnDemand. Can this solution be used with OnDemand? Also, I was hoping for some kind of built-in functionality. Is there anything in the settings that would allow this?
