Video meetings accessible in two clicks

Try out our new Zoom integration for easy video and audio conferencing right from the Easy Redmine user environment. Create 1:1 or collective audio & video conferences via calendar, chat window and on tasks, contacts and CRM cases as well. This is pretty useful when you need to talk to your colleagues live with no need to open a separate communicator.

Org structures visualization

Organization structure is a form of a tree hierarchy where every user in the organization, except the top one, is subordinate to a single another user. This arrangement helps define how activities such as task allocation, coordination, and supervision are standardly directed toward the achievement of organizational aims. It also determines who is eligible to approve vacation requests submitted by users. Organization structure is a standalone plugin for Easy Redmine. Since it is not included in the basic project management, it has to be purchased separately in the customer portal.

Requirements plugin

Requirements management is useful for technically sophisticated projects where lots of small components and details build a big and impressive product (like a car or a piece of machinery). Simply create artifacts, which represent basic attributes in the requirements' tree structure. Requirements management is a standalone plugin for Easy Redmine. Since it is not included in the basic project management, it has to be purchased separately in the customer portal.

Global roles by user types

Each user type now has a default role, thus eliminating the need to assign a role to newly created users of specific user types. Moreover, default user roles have been reduced to a few most common roles in an organization. When you invite new users to the system, you may assign him a specific role already before you send the invitation.
