Effort Estimations (Time Tracking) - Feature description 

When the "Time Tracking" field is added to the "subtask default screen" a new icon will be displayed on the subtask card. After clicking on this icon you can edit the "Original Estimate" in minutes, hours, days and weeks (for example 1m, 1h, 1d, 1w)
