Set estimated hours for a task
I need some way to be able to say how much time is to be spent on a task, and then to track that time as it is used. All tasks at the moment are tracked by milestones, so far as I can see. Setting delivery dates is fine, but without know just how many estimated hours are left, and how far through each task is, it is difficult to plan daily activities to meat those milestones.

yes, for tracking progress against logged hours

Adding in estimated hours as a variable, and current hours left, and see that wrapped up similar to how a Sprint is tracked. Basically, an agile Burndown Chart that is directly attached to Tasks would be hugely helpful.
This is absolutely required... My team wants to use an online tool and we are thinking of using freed camp but the said functionality is missing...
I need an estimate, remaining and approved field for tasks/sub-tasks.
This is how I track progress - otherwise it's just a bunch of work to do.
Initially remaining is the same as estimate, but the assignee can update the remaining as they make progress. All approved tasks/sub task remaining field are summed for a simple burndown. Tasks that aren't approved are not summed so tasks can remain in the project as backlog items. Personally I would like estimates to be in man-days and partial man-days (e.g. 1, .5, .2, etc).
For real though. This would be incredibly helpful.
Good idea, like this one (more detailed) https://freedcamp.uservoice.com/forums/126945-suggestions-for-features/suggestions/9179441-set-estimated-hours-for-a-task
