How do I get backlog cards to show the remaining estimates?

Hello! I'm trying to make my backlog show remaining time estimates instead of original time estimates. I believe I have the right settings put in, but it doesn't seem to be working.

You already have.  Look at the bottom left corner of the card you've highlighted in the backlog - it says "3d" there.

The number you have highlighted in red is the sprint estimate field, for which you've selected "Original estimate".  Fortunately, Jira won't let you select "remaining estimate" for that, because it would make doing sprints. or scrum pointless, as the reporting would be complete nonsense.

Got it. Thanks Nic!
