Hello and welcome to our about 5 minutes lasting best practice session on how to use Redmine Reporting Plugin functionality to get work done.

Our best practice session on Redmine Reporting

covers the following sections:

  • Custom queries
  • Counter groups
  • Counters


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.

Let's get started

Custom queries

First of all, 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 Do (for your tasks)
  • To Do (for the whole team)
  • Feedback required
  • Watched by me
Go to -> Projects / Issues. Use the Filters and Options. Create and save all your required custom queries.

Counter groups

Afterwards go to the plugin settings and create your Counter groups you need for your team and define where to display them. A good start in general are the following one's:

  • My Issues (what do I have to do)
  • Team Issues (what are other's working on)
Go to -> Administration / Reporting / Counter groups. There you add new one's or edit existing one's and position them.


The final step is to assign the custom queries you have added before to the existing counter groups and position them.

Go to -> Administration / Reporting / Counters.

You can determine the sequence yourself using Drag&Drop. The color and icons of the respective box can also be adjusted as desired. Even a threshold value is possible. Which is useful to implement another icon or a different text color.


You are ready to go!

Thank you!
