Original estimate field is not visible by default



When I create a new project I have to modify the default issue screen for this new project (add time tracking) if I want to have the original estimate visible in the create issue screen. Is is possible to set this for all project types by default or at least by project type ?


Thanks for your help.

Hi,  You will need to add the field "Time Tracking" to your screens. Then you will get Original Estimate on your screens. This is not added by default.

You can also create the new project and simply change the 'Issue Type Screen Scheme' to the one used in the old project, so they'll have the same screens and that will include 'time tracking'.


That will make it easier, so you don't need to set a screen for each operation and configure them individually. It's important to point out that all screens will be the same in both projects, even those not connected to estimation.
