Adding time estimation to an issue

Brand new to YouTrack, but something I can't seem to find anywhere in the documentation. This is for a standalone install in case it matters.

 

I have set up Time tracking on my project, and had it add the Estimation and Spent Time fields. When I go into my agile board to add an issue, I can add time estimation there, however I really would like to add it when I am creating issues also. (Even if I am going to update it later, the ability for a first pass would be useful.)

While it shows up as an editable field on the right, and even is clickable to a textbox, it is not saving when I type in valid values, and does not seem to have any way to do so. I am admin while attempting this.

What setting am I missing to make this saveable.

Hello Fafnir,

thank you for reaching out!

Could you please elaborate, why can't you add time estimations at the time you're creating an issue? Where and how do you create issues?

What happens when you try to save a field value? Are there any error messages? Where and how do you change a field value? Could you provide a screenshot?

 

You can answer here or you can submit a request into our support system. Thank you!

So I went to reproduce with screenshots for you and I found out what I was doing wrong. The field saves on Enter only, not on any sort of focus loss as I was expecting. My tendency on using a webpage is to avoid hitting enter because who knows what form it will submit.

Where can I submit it as a feature request that that field should probably update on any type of focus loss, or gain an apply button as it does on the agile board version?

 

Thanks by the way for the super quick response!
