The Estimate field is an essential part of using FogBugz as a project-tracking tool. Normally, the person who creates the case will leave this field blank, to be filled in by the developer. The developer should estimate the time that it will take to close the case and fill this in as soon as they look at the case. Estimates are in days and hours, and you can use the format 6h or 3d8h to enter them.

After you've entered an estimate, FogBugz presents some additional controls in this area, as shown in Figure 2-9. You can't change the original estimate, but you can reestimate the total work by entering a value in the Current textbox, and show how much effort has been expended in the Elapsed textbox.

Estimate: (original) 6 hours
