If this option in not selected but users want to specify a start time for their worklogs, they must log time in the Time view of the My Work Calendar.
By default, users are not required to enter an estimate of remaining time in a worklog. If this option is selected and an issue has no Original estimate, the Remaining estimateis not calculated in the time-tracking entry. If the option is selected and an issue has Original estimate, the Remaining estimate is reduced by the time spent until the value 0 is reached. The Remaining estimate cannot be a negative number, but if it has reached 0, the user can add a new one.
Clear the check-box if users should not be able to log time without adding a remaining estimate.
