All in one application - that is Easy Redmine
RTL Radio use Easy Redmine to maintain help desk, resources, attendance and of course all IT and software projects. We like the complexity - using all-in-one solution is just wonderful.
Task tracking on the project level is a basic system feature. Tasks are assigned to users who see them on their personal pages. Users update tasks according to the work-flow and permissions - this is how the users communicate & cooperate. External users such as partners or clients can access the system as well. There is just one key to advanced features - it is time tracking and estimated time..
All user have a personal page which helps them manage everyday personal work. The personal page is customizable and allows users to create tabs - users can thus have more personal pages. Templates of personal pages allows multiple assignment - one predefined page can be assigned to more users. A variety of personal page modules ensures that everybody has the page that perfectly suits her/his needs.
Users can also see their allocation on tasks in the Resource Management plugin. There is a personal page module that displays tasks on a time line with an estimated time and due date.
Managers can display tasks assigned to particular users and see their statuses. They can also quickly find the tasks that are overdue or have not been updated for a longer period of time - idle tasks. This is an easy way how to control the task completion.
All new tasks or updates are also reported using e-mail notifications. Users therefore do not need to check Easy Redmine but Easy Redmine notifies them instead.
Since time tracking is a crucial factor of the advanced usage, there are several ways how users can log time spent.
They can log time while updating tasks:
They can also log time from their personal pages, using a time log calendar:
