How do I associate a date with "Time Estimate"?

The company I work for wants developers to use "Time Estimate" to forecast the amount of time they are to spend on various tasks for the next working day. (e.g. on Tuesday, I enter 4 hours for ABC project, 2 hrs for XYZ, and 1 hr for Maintenance). However, since I can't find a timestamp associated with the entry, I'm not sure how to differentiate the time estimate entered on Tuesday (for Wed work) and on Wed (for Thur work); if I add them up, I get the sum of all time estimates entered by that person since they started using JIRA. In what file would I find the date that any given Time Estimate is entered?

Look in the history tab - that will tell you of each change to an issue, including changes of estimates.

Hi Nic, Thanks for your response. I should have been more clear: what table in the JIRA database holds the field that shows when a Time Estimate was entered? In our setup, the Daily Time Estimate is a custom field. I think it's "userhistoryitem", but I wanted to make sure.

Oh, right, look for "changeitem" for the field changes, and "changegroup" for who and when
