No way to automatically update remaining time to zero when dragging to done

I have a Greenhopper rapid board for my project and am using the GreenHopper simplified workflow.

When I drag a Techical Task (with a few hours estimated work remaining) to the Done column, the remaining time is not set to 0h.

Naturally, I understand with the JIRA default workflow, one can add a post-function to the Closed status to automatically set this value to 0h, but in my case the workflow is not manually editable AFAICT.

Can someone help or advise on a work-around for this?

Many thanks in advance.

I had to do the following to get to where I wanted to be:

1. Create a copy of the default workflow for my organisation

2. Add a post-function to the resolve transition which clears the "Remaining estimate" field -- don't forget to publish it! ;-)

3. Create a new workflow scheme and apply it to my project

Happy now.

Log Work Utilities add-on allows to clear remaining estimate on issue close/resolve without a need to modify workflow: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.gebsun.plugins.jira.log-work-utilities/server/overview
