Setting Correction and Time Remaining to 0 (zero) for work items with status invalidated

We have task work items with estimate and time remaining values. If the task status is changed to invalidated we want to set the estimate and time remaining value of these work items to 0.
How can we configure this? Is there a standard way to configure a dependency between the status and estimate or time remaining fields?

Thanks in Advance,

I would assume the best way to do this would be a follow up action. See this workshop to get started:

I doubt this can be done using work item customization: one thing that I think is not possible today is detecting the state change. Another issue seems to be the specific attribute you want to write to. There was a similar post recently and I tried and fails to set its value using a script.
