Redmine Resource Management plugin 2017 main features

Manage with Resource Management Dashboard

The Resource Management Dashboard gives you an excellent global view of your workers and tasks that have not been assigned yet.  For each user you will be able to the assigned tasks and whether that worker is over- or underloaded. Using Drag & Drop you can easily change the start and due dates of tasks to balance out the workload,  allocate unassigned tasks or reassign a task to a different worker.

Newly in 2017 version: It is now possible to filter tasks in Resource Management according to fields of their project. This is especially useful in global Resource Management.

Redmine Resource Management Task relations and milestones

Manage competencies with Easy Redmine

Effective allocation of your worker's expertise is crucial good resource management. Using Redmine Resource Management plugin, you can easily create filters that will help you with your competence management, which can be seen in the header. Simply choose the competence and the users and a quick filter will appear on your dashboard, that can be switched on and off when needed.

Newly in 2017 version: Better color distinction - in some cases there was red text on a red background in the previous versions so the color distinctions were made looking clearer.

Redmine Resource Management Users and tasks

Milestones within Resource Management

When using Global Resource management, you can easily switch on the milestones in the panel below the chart. This way you can keep up with the dates of your tasks' milestones while managing resources.

Newly in 2017 version: The free capacity of the group is calculated from tasks assigned to the group AND tasks assigned to the members of the groups - previously it only worked with tasks directly assigned to a group.

Redmine Resource Management Problems list

Easily navigate through users' tasks

Thanks to the project function within the Global Resource Management, you can easily navigate through users tasks. Projects button will allow showing which project each taskbar belongs to, thus simplifying the process of distributing the workload.

Newly in 2017 version: Restriction in moving a task with "following" relations was added - Resource Management doesn't show task relations (as regular Gantt). So without the proper context, you may move a task into the future, which also moves a whole set of tasks that follow it. Now, Resource Management shows barriers where you cannot move the task without affecting other tasks.
