Easy Redmine 10 – Analyze Your Risks the Easy Way

Having deployed the powerful Redmine project management in an organization, one can barely think of a better upgrade than Easy Redmine 10, which has just been released. The unique mix of improvements with brand new features moves the generic Redmine a few levels up.

This version is a major full-featured upgrade from the previous 2019 version, and it brings new features like Risk Management, Scheduler in sidebar calendar, new Test plans, new dependent custom fields, automatic due date calculation, improved security, and more for your Redmine. Here follows the list of major new features coming with Easy Redmine 10.

Brand new Risk Management

Risk Management is a mandatory process for each correctly managed project. This tool allows to set the risk matrix through your organization, manage risks on projects and provide global risk reporting and overview for management. The global module is suitable for the roles of Line Manager, Risk Manager or Project Management Officer (PMO), while the project module is optimal for Project Manager, allowing him to manage project risks in a controlled manner per each particular project under his supervision.

Scheduler in sidebar calendar

Popular Scheduler plugin is now available directly from the sidebar view of Easy Redmine, allowing for even quicker and more comfortable access.

Scheduler plugin is a drag and drop calendar that shows all meetings, to-dos, planned resources, attendance, and spent time entries. It's quickly becoming the most used plugin by our clients because it gives an ultimate and instant overview of what is going on to both regular workers and managers.

New Test Plans for test scenarios

A new entity called Test plan has been added to the Test case plugin. It groups selected test cases into a bundle. A test plan can be linked to a task => all test cases belonging to the test plan will be linked to the task.

Test cases plugin is a great tool that helps with repetitive processes and testing stories/scenarios and is compatible with many testing methodologies. Test cases are especially useful for IT teams for more rigorous and systematic testing, as well as industrial companies.

New dependent custom fields

Our customers were asking us to create an option on how to set up dependencies between values of 2 different “List” custom fields. To solve this issue, we created a new custom field type “Dependent list”. To set it up, you just need to create two custom fields. When you change the value in any of both, the value in the second one changes automatically as it is dependent on the other field's value. Such a dependency surely finds its use in many business operations.

Due date calculation by task duration for quicker task creation

When we plan tasks in Easy Redmine, we need to set up start and due dates to inform users when we expect tasks to be done. But managers who worked with Microsoft Project (MSP) before, don't want to add the "due date" manually, they expect that they can set up the start date and task duration while the due date will be calculated automatically. Therefore, we are bringing the solution to this issue - due date calculation by task duration.

In theory, a manager can calculate it manually but to do it, he needs to check the calendar and calculate the number of working hours in the particular month, check if the current user has planned some absences and then calculate the estimated time manually. So it is possible but not user-friendly at all.

Better safety protection with security lock

When enabled, this feature activates a deadlock if any user enters an incorrect password several times so that he/she gets notice of how long the account would be disabled before the next login attempt is allowed again. You can configure it in More » Administration » Settings » Authentication » Unsuccessful login attempts.

Check attendance status of task assignees

When choosing an assignee of a task, you see his/her attendance status so that you don't put the task on a holiday-maker or sick person. This feature is supposed to prevent the need for unnecessary re-assigning of tasks.

A color-format custom field

A new Color-format custom field can be added to any supported entity, such as projects, tasks, contacts, etc. The custom field provides users with the choice of three colors (flags) to select from - green, orange, red. Each color represents a manually chosen indicator and it's up to users what meaning they match those colors with. Use case: Budget spending - green, Schedule compliance - orange, Client responsivity - red.
