The Redmine HedgeDoc plugin ensures that Redmine users have a central place in Redmine for all pads created with the collaborative text editor HedgeDoc (formerly known as CodiMD).

A pad is a real-time text editor that allows multiple people to edit a text document and view content simultaneously. This may be useful for project notes, protocols or workshops, for example.

HedgeDoc pads are shared with others by telling the recipients the URL. With our plugin, you no longer need to manually send the URL to each participant. Members of a project receive a central overview of all project-relevant pads in Redmine.
