Answers to: Incorrect Time Remaining calculation?https://jazz.net/forum/questions/157221/incorrect-time-remaining-calculation<img alt="" src="c:\junk\error.png">
One of my stakeholders reported a problem to me, that when adjusting the estimate (in his case from 6 w to 8 w), the time remaining is changed incorrectly.
<br>
<br>
For example, I have a task and I say Estimate is 3w .. time remaining changes to 3w. I change estimate to 6w, it changes time remaining to 6w (okay, this works how I would imagine). I save this.
<br>
<br>
Then I have gone in and in the Correction field, I put 8 w. My time remaining changes to 2w 1d. How is that possible? Can someone explain how the Time Remaining field is calculated within a given work item (like Task) based on the Estimate and Correction values entered?
<br>
<br>
Does it take into account what is already in the Time Remaining field? For example, estimate 6w, then correction to 7w (updates time remaining to 7w). If I then change correction to 8w, does it say that 8w (correction) minus 6w (estimate) = 2w longer. Since the Time Remaining field previously said 7w, then I add 7w to the additional time to make 9w?

<br>
<br>
its being taken care by two work items:
<br>
<a class="jazz-ui-ResourceLink" href="https://jazz.net/jazz/resource/itemName/com.ibm.team.workitem.WorkItem/304578" id="jazz_ui_ResourceLink_175">Time Remaining is not updated when estimate is updated in eclipse client (304578)</a>
<br>
and
<br>
<a class="jazz-ui-ResourceLink" href="https://jazz.net/jazz/resource/itemName/com.ibm.team.workitem.WorkItem/322701" id="jazz_ui_ResourceLink_174">Time remaining calculated incorrectly when updating estimates (322701)</a>
<br>
<br>
you may want to add on your usecase to them to ensure its covered.
<br>
<br>
thanks,
