Not every user likes never ending To-Do-Lists. Even we know how they can destroy enthusiasm for one's work. That's why we have implemented the so called Counter boxes of the Redmine Reporting Plugin.
They help to visualize the work that needs to be done in a more user friendly way.
They also make it easier for new employees to get started in Redmine.
The configuration takes place after you have installed the required plugin.
The configuration must be made by a user with administration rights in the plugin settings.
Go to the plugin settings and create Query groups you need for your team. Define where to display them. A good start in general are the following one's:
Now you need public (to any users & for all projects) available custom queries for issues, that fit your needs. A good start in general are the following one's:
To make your saved queries available in your Query groups you need to edit them and activate the counter box section. Watch the upcoming video to see how.
Some information on counter box configuration options.
|Query group||After activating the box you assign it to an available query group via mouse click|
|Name||Use a short name for display|
|Icon||Assign a funny icon|
|Color||Choose a nice color for the box|
|Weight||Position the counter box in the query group via weight number|
|Threshold options||Activate the Threshold if you wish to make the counter box only visible when a certain threshold number has been reached. Otherwise it will be hidden.|
