Part I

What is Redmine HRM

Redmine HRM is a resource management and team planning solution that seamlessly integrates into Redmine


The HRM plugin helps teams to visualize and plan team resources in real-time and without micro-management.

And it comes with the feature Holiday management. Which is essential for a realistic ressource management of your team.

This enables a faster overview and better planning for management and employees.

Part II



Initial situation

In many companies forms for leave requests are submitted to HR department.
Approved times are then entered manually in a calendar.
A final check of how many leave days the applicant has taken is necessary.

This process costs an unnecessary amount of time.

A better solution for vacation management with Redmine is the HRM Plugin.

The plugin reflects the typical processes in Redmine. And is suitable for companies with various projects.
