Can you send me a screenshot?

There is nothing unusual: red timer appear, I enter the text, save and double click to stop timer or just double click to stop timer.
The issue isn't updated in both cases.
I see some rmclient activity in development log, but nothing that told me about error.

These functions will be realized in the new version very soon!

We are using nginx with self-signed ssl certificate and unicorn as back-end.
Is it possible to skip trust certificate checking at the start of application, it's annoying?

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Анна Лосева over 4 years ago

Send me, please, url of your redmine

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Анна Лосева over 4 years ago

The timer does not work with https-connection. But if you are willing to help with testing, we can make this opportunity!

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Pavel Potcheptsov over 4 years ago

I can test the application and provide feedback with development and rmclient logs or any other activities.

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Terence Mill over 4 years ago

For me its not working either and i don't use https.
There is neither time logged nor comments when i stop the timer.

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Ty You over 4 years ago

Same here - timer seems to start and stop but nothing makes it to Redmine - no time logged, no notes, and no error messages. Just fails silently.

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Анна Лосева over 4 years ago

Your time is not added to Redmine? Can you send me url of your Redmine?

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Selim Arslan over 4 years ago

Hi I'll try it first with mac. Is also your source code released?

Hello,

it works really well.
I had to manually make small settings in Redmine.

1 Activities (time tracking) must be set as a default tracker. (e.g. Design)
2.issues assignee = me

Then, the tracking also works.

better functions:
1 Only Comments? We need some notes!
2 The state must be able to be changed (resolved, feedback)
3 When I capture a new Issue time, and the old is still running, will not pop up a warning!
4 Start / Stop button is better, then the double-click.
5 The window should always be in the foreground!

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - compatibility? - Added by Alex Wilhelmy over 4 years ago

Hello,

what a great and convincing concept! I installed it and got it immediately working (your Q&A being very useful).
only point: I am running redmine 1.3.2 stable from debian-repositories on ubuntu 12.04 LTS (as most of us I suppose). My first test showed rmclient working - but should I use it productive?

Thanks a lot

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Анна Лосева over 4 years ago

Tell me please, what does it meaning? Will the program work with your version of the redmine? Will the program work with your version of Ubuntu?

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Alex Wilhelmy over 4 years ago

Hi Anna,

I installed rmclient on Windows and it works with my redmine version 1.3.2. Your website states compatibiltiy for redmine 2.3.X. So: do you recommend using it with redmine 1.3.2? (the ubuntu version is of no importance).

So my question: does rmclient work with Redmine 1.3.2?

thanks

williwow

PS: regarding questions above: if you are having problems with adding time: rmclient requires you setting a default activity. otherwise it does silently, well, nothing. You can check this by adding time manually in redmine: if your activity field is filled out by default your OK, if not, not (even if there is just one choice). then go to configuration etc.

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Анна Лосева over 4 years ago

Unfortunately, we did not test this possibility. Similarly, I can not answer.

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Анна Лосева over 4 years ago

New version of Redmine is much more convenient, maybe you would prefer to work with it?

I cheked this and IT IS SET to and actibity, but still the toll odes not enter a time and fails silently. You shall add debug code for users to see whats (not) happening!

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Alex Wilhelmy over 4 years ago

Hi Anna et al.

rmclient did upgrade to 1.4.2 and this is a FANTASTIC tool! Works very fine with our redmine 1.3 (from ubuntu-repositories). Adding play/pause icons for time tracking is great improvement.

Thanks!

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by kartik s about 4 years ago

Hi Anna,

This is a really great tool. I have installed it and it connects to m tickets but the time is not getting logged on the tickets. Can you help please.

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by Анна Лосева about 4 years ago

Hi! I think, this information can help you:
The timer will not record the time, if your user Redmine not have appropriate rights of access.
You need to check whether the settings of your account permission to write, view, and edit the time spent on the project. To do this in the project settings tab, select the "Members" page and see what role is assigned to the selected user.
Check availability at the role of rights is possible, if you have access to the administration of the project. In the "Administrative Tools" select "Roles" and there you can edit all of its rights, including the right for time.

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by kartik s about 4 years ago

Hi Thanks for the quick reply my user has admin privileges. Would there be still an issue with the permissions? Am I missing any setup instructions?

RE: New time tracking timer for redmine! - Added by kartik s about 4 years ago

I checked the permissions all seems fine. when I click the pause button the the time logs get saved at that time?
