If you already work with the Redmine Reporting Plugin from our company, you will get a number of charts and diagrams to display on the Redmine home page or project overview. They give you a pretty complete picture of the status of your projects, for example the tasks they contain.

The displayed diagrams can not only be configured according to your wishes. You can also specify if and where the graphical output is to take place and for which role.

That’s not enough for you yet? You may need certain information that is not captured by the standard graphs. Then it’s time to go deeper into your issue data. With custom fields in List format.

Create your first custom, graphical evaluation

If you use custom fields of the format list in the ticket evaluation area, you can have a pie chart with corresponding distribution output for the entered values.

And that’s how easy it works:

Step 1: Create a custom field with the format list in the administration area / custom fields for the issues.
