Easy Redmine 2018 features
Easy Redmine 2018 is a complete and extensible Redmine upgrade. Combination of new mobile design with useful plugins & features will make your project management more enjoyable, improve communication, user experience and save your time. Here is the list of most important features & improvements.
New & mobile design
Easy Redmine 2018 has been redesigned to bring you a more clear and intuitive user experience. Easy Redmine offers the best Redmine mobile solution on the market, plus Easy Redmine template is fully responsive, hence easily usable in modern mobile browsers.
Gantt chart visualizes project tasks on a timeline and allows for their convenient planning - an essential tool for both simple and complex projects. Baselines, critical path, cash flow, resources and even more tools can be displayed directly in Easy Gantt. You can also apply relations, create sub-tasks and milestones.
It is Easy Redmine plugin that allows organizing personal, team and project meetings – a calendar with meetings and tasks which can be implemented on both personal and project page. It allows you to see availability of your colleagues and send an invitation via e-mail.
Easy Gantt on the global level allows you to work with the entire project tree including all associated tasks, milestones, relations, delays etc. on a single screen. The key advantage is the elimination of chaotic switching between individual projects when working on multiple projects simultaneously.
The whole project (with tasks, milestones, team members, documents, etc.) can be saved as a template and used for initialization of new project in the future. Templates are great time savers and allow you to continuously develop to improve your project delivery.
Every user, project or working team should have their own dashboard, which organizes their daily work. Dashboards are fully customizable, allowing you to add/remove modules from the list and save dashboards as templates. Plus, dashboard templates for the most common roles are already prepared for you.
- 3 types of dashboards: personal, project, general (customizable pages)
- various personal modules: my tasks, tasks assigned to me, tasks I cooperate on, tasks according to projects, etc.
- various project modules: project statistics, time spent meter, documents, tasks per project members, etc.
- various general modules: team statistics, projects in delay, resource management, agile board, attendance, etc.
- variety of graphical outputs (pie charts, line charts, gauge meters, lists, reports, calendars, etc.)
- import and export feature of entire page templates

Quick project planner
It serves for the quick and easy planning of ad-hoc projects where project templates are not applicable. Quick planner allows you to define key tasks, which should be then managed in the Gantt chart.
An activity overview (changes made on tasks) of a specific person can be found on the particular user's profile. Moreover, global activity feed is a feature accessible from the sidebar that keeps you informed about today's activities on the selected projects.
Improved time tracking
Users have several ways how to log & track spent time either manually, from their personal dashboard, while updating tasks or automatically using a stopwatch. Information about time tracking on the projects is a key to the assessment of project performance & profitability.
Documents can be attached to projects and tasks. Project documents can be categorized by role-based access rights. Task documents within the project are listed clearly in the "task attachments“ category. Documents are shareable, versioned, searchable and editable online.
A check-list is a type of job-aid used to reduce failure by compensating for potential limits of human memory and attention. It helps to ensure consistency and completeness in carrying out a task.
Graphs & charts
Any list of entries (projects, tasks, time entries, etc.) can be visualized in a graph or a chart, which are completely customizable. In just a couple of clicks using pie, bar or line chart you can prepare a report on the performance of your project and demonstrate what needs to be improved.
Speed up repetitive activities such as task update or Help desk ticket assignment to a selected worker using action buttons. Just open a list of tasks (or tickets) and drag & drop one to the pre-set action button, which can carry out any kind of task update, including change of assignee, tracker or priority.
Video and Audio conferences - Zoom integration
Zoom integration allows you to easily plan and create video & audio conferences directly in your Easy Redmine. You can either Meet Now and send an invitation to users in chat, easily create a planned Zoom meeting and send an invitation to email, or create meetings on tasks, contacts or CRM cases.
Global roles by user types
Each user type might have a predefined default role, thus eliminating the need to assign a role to newly created users of specific user types. For the sake of simplicity, default user roles are reduced to a few most common roles in an organization. When you invite a new user to the system, you may assign him a specific role before you send the invitation. For each user type, a customized personal dashboard is available for immediate use.
This is one of the most important initial configurations in Easy Redmine. Once you get this done, you will have a perfect control over task tracking in the whole organization - from project owners to part-timers, and even to external parties, such as customers or external collaborators.
It is a tool for quick "to-do" reminders. Wherever you are in the system, a to-do list is always ready in the right service panel. All "To-do" notes can be turned into tasks by drag & dropping them into a particular project.
All data from the system can be exported into a PDF with your logo and company colors. Example of exports: any task list, project, Gantt chart, etc.
