This Redmine plugin reuses the standard "view_time_entries" permission to hide the estimated hours for specific roles from

  • Issues view
  • Issues edit
  • Issues grid overview, available columns
  • Issues grid overview, selectable filter
  • Issues PDF
  • REST API Issues Index
  • REST API Issues Detail
  • Issues journal
  • Issues mail notifications

This plugin is just a limited workaround, i really would love to see this feature implemented in Redmine. If you think so
too, please contribute to or +1 this and this Redmine Ticket.

Estimated time is properly hidden from certain roles, but total estimated time is not. It should be also hidden. (total estimated time is the sum of estimated times of subtasks, if there is no subtask then the normal and the total estimated time is =)

Looks good, but I have installed it on Redmine 2,6 and it doesn't work
