Original and remaining estimate

Dear Atlassian Team,

Would you please advise where and how to change the settings,  so that we can estimate any task? 

Task estimation isn't possible currently, only in the agile backlog (Plan) view (and not even for all the tasks). 

Thanks for your help in advance.

You need to add the ''time tracking'' field on your issue screen.

Hi Philippe, Thanks for your help. This and changing the agile board configuration for Estimation seem to be the solution for us. Testing now.
