Subtasks of a story are not added to that story's estimate time

The story itself has no hours, because the hours it takes are specified in the subtasks. But when I see them in the sprint, the story has no time estimate. When I fill in the estimate time for the story and use the added time of all the subtasks it will show up double in the Time Tracking of the story. Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Llona,

Actually, that's default behavior. There is an improvement request being tracked at GHS-5614. I suggest you add yourself as a watcher to be notified of future updates.
