  • tomorrow
  • next <day of week>, e.g. "next tuesday"
  • next week (equals to next monday)
  • +N days, e.g. “+3 days” which means three days after today
  • +N weeks, e.g. "+2 weeks"
  • +N months
  • exact date, format depends on your regional settings.

It is also possible to specify exact due time, e.g. tomorrow, 10:30. When time is not specified, start of day is used (as configured in the FogBugz server).

In all cases, exact due date/time that will be sent to FogBugz server is reported in decoration above the field:
Current Date

How to Clear Due Date

Estimate in Current Estimate field should be written as number of days, hours and minutes in following format: “N days, N hours, N minutes”. Numbers without “days”, “hours” or “minutes” unit are treated as hours. Similarly to Due Date field, when entering new estimate, entered value is validated and displayed above the field:
Current Estimate

Original Estimate cannot be changed, not even in the FogBugz web interface.

Don’t forget to Submit changes back to the FogBugz repository.
