What values for CSV import


I am successfully creating issues by importing via a CSV file except for one field, the Estimate field. when I go through the importer and map the fields I choose Original Estimate and using values like these in my CSV file:

1d, 2d, 1h, 2h, 30m, 15m (I only use one of these values at a time depending on which issue I am creating by the way)

but each time I import it says it has been successfully imported and gives the error that it is unable to parse that field. I assume I am putting it in the format on my CSV file. I then go to the issue and edit the Original Estimate and it saves correctly. How can I save myself the step of going back to the issue just to create the Original Estimate?

Try giving it the number of seconds - that's how it exports it, and what it stores in the background.

Thank you Nic, I will give that a try. I was going to try that before but was unsure if I should put a 's' on the end like this: 3600s
