Redmine "pimped"

Post to Twitter

Redmine is a very useful open source project management tool. It has great features and just works!

We use it for our internal quality management, as project documentation system and for time tracking. The time tracking feature is good but has some limitations. It is not possible to enter start/end time, only hours are possible.

Why we need start/end time?

The Austrian law defines that an official time recording, needs start and end time.

We found no plugin that offers the missing features, so we changed Redmine (2.0.3) to fulfill our needs. We added From/To input fields in the time tracking form, added a new permission for the time tracking module because only managers should see the time recordings of other users. A Developer or Reporter should not see time recordings of other users. It was not a lot of work, but it helps a lot :)

Here are some screenshots:
