Add Estimates in Jira Plugin

February 11, 2020

The Jira time tracking plugin we released a few months ago is getting popular so we made one more update here. You can now add estimates for all projects.

Add Estimates From One Place in the Jira Plugin

You could use the Original Estimate native field in Jira earlier but it was available for the classic projects only. With the latest plugin update, you can add estimates in the next-gen projects as well.

Besides, you can also get rid of the pain of where to find that Original Estimate and how to add it to your Classic projects. Just open up the Everhour plugin instead and add an estimate.

Please note, the plugin allows adding Overall estimates only.

What Else You Should Know

How it works in Classic projects:

  • Jira original estimate and Everhour overall estimate will be automatically duplicated to the plugin as an overall estimate;
  • If you had Everhour personal estimates earlier, we will indicate their total as overall in the Jira plugin;
  • If you had Jira original estimate and Everhour personal estimates, the Jira plugin will show you the overall estimate duplicated from Jira original estimate field.

How it works in Next-Gen projects:

  • Overall estimate will remain overall In Jira plugin;
  • Personal estimates will remain personal until you add an overall estimate in the Jira plugin instead.


Waclaw helps Everhour users to get answers to questions they might have. Being a father of two boys, I know that you need to be patient and thorough in explanation. I like to read books and watch (play occasionally) football games.
