In project management, the focus is on the processing of activities arising in current projects. If you have more than one project running in tandem, you must be able to keep an eye on everything without any problems.

The Redmine Reporting Plugin supports you in this. Thanks to numerous additional filter options, it allows more differentiated filtering and the output of relevant information in additional columns. This gives you many more possibilities to find projects based on specific criteria faster and analyze them in more detail.

What filters does Redmine provide for the project list?

By default, Redmine in version 4.1.x delivers the filters in the area Projects on the project overview page:

  • Status
  • Project
  • Name
  • Description
  • Subproject of
  • Public
  • Created
  • Other custom fields for projects with the option Use as filter

In the area Options you have the possibility to define the display of the projects. You have to choose between the Board or List view.

Depending on the selection made, the corresponding filter result is displayed via the link Apply. The list can be subscribed to via a Atom feed at the bottom of the page. If you want to save the query for a later call, use the Save link.

Like the issue list you can filter, reset, save and delete the Redmine project list as well.

How do the Reporting Plugin filters work?

All functions of the Reporting Plugin are seamlessly integrated into Redmine. If you have installed and configured the Redmine Reporting Plugin on your system, you will find the additional filter options directly in the project list.
