Easy Redmine 2019 October's Update – Another Step Closer to Redmine Excellency
Here comes a second big update of Easy Redmine this year. After the original 2019 version released in May, which brought a lot of new features, October's update introduces improved design and user experience whilst still having the best Redmine features on the market, under one roof.
The Easy Redmine 2019 October's update is another step closer to the demands of the Redmine community. We received a lot of feedback on the previous version and have been doing our best to keep on improving. Therefore, it is not just new features this update is about. We focused on design and user experience too. Just look and see with our 30-day free trial or watch the webinar recording.
How about Redmine in dark
Easy Redmine comes with 2 new design themes to meet various users' needs - Compact & Dark. Every user can switch between the themes on his user's profile.
- Compact theme is a light-colored theme with the layout of graphic elements much more compacted to display maximum data on one screen, thus reducing the need for scrolling.
- Dark theme displays dark surfaces across the majority of the UI, thus helping improve visual ergonomics by reducing eye strain and facilitating screen use in dark environments.
A better overview of Redmine tasks
A modal view of tasks enables to see and/or edit all important data related to a specific task in a single-screen pop-up window, eliminating the need for opening the task in a separate tab. This kind of view is available in WBS, Agile and Scheduler modules as well as on the standard task list.
So, it is like a compact view of everything that can usually be found under various tabs, columns or buttons of the normal task view. Most importantly, the modal view is extremely fast and easy to use and its main purpose is saving time while doing standard task management.
Of course, the modal view is definitely not a passive view but is fully interactive so you can quickly edit any of these visible task attributes or add missing text just by clicking to the respective area on the screen.
Balance your Redmine resources easily
Resource Auto Balancer is a feature of Resource Management that automatically redistributes all allocated hours of all visible user-assigned tasks throughout the entire task's duration (start date - due date) based on the user's free capacity, taking into account his daily working hours, vacations as well as other task allocations.
The balancing process is always executed in order of tasks' priorities - if the Priority column is displayed on the left side of Resource Management, tasks with a higher priority are balanced first (before tasks with lower priority). If the Priority column is not displayed, then tasks are balanced according to their order in the left-side list. Reservations are excluded from balancing.
Integrate your Redmine with Jenkins CI plugin
Integrate your Redmine with Jenkins and other CI/CD tools to get continuous integration that will boost your DevOps. Jenkins is a leading open source automation server that supports building, deploying and automating any project. Now fully integrated with your Redmine management platform.
Start Jenkins's job/pipeline automatically with task update based on custom-defined conditions. Job/pipeline results are automatically registered into the task journal. Just as simply, job journals are linked directly to Jenkins. Moreover, you can run Jenkins jobs manually from task detail.
