time estimates are of hours or days in next gen projects

If I have a task which I can finish in 2 days so how should I estimate time for that

Hi @rahul belsare@rahul belsare 

Time tracking isn't available yet on Next-Gen projects but is on the short-term roadmap. You can check out what's on the roadmap and what's recently shipped here:

I'd also recommend checking out this Community article where one of our Product Managers discusses what's available in Next-Gen projects and what hasn't been shipped yet.

This is a good example of where NG just hasn't caught up yet. While you can "log" time spent and remaining time there isn't an "original estimate". Estimation is limited to story points at this time. As PVS mentioned this is coming in 2020 per roadmap.

You might consider using the time logging feature in the meantime by simply setting the Remaining Time when the issue is created and leaving the logged time empty.


Thanks Jack. 

As I am new user of Jira just let me know whether the story points are in hours or days.

If I write 9 as a story points so whether it will consider as 9 hours or 9 days.
