Better Gantt Chart

Added by Chris Darts over 8 years ago

I've just downloaded and tested the new Better Gantt Chart plugin. I am currently using the #2024 patch, so I tried the file 'redmine_better_gantt_chart-0.2.1-patch2024.zip'.

On the whole it looks like a good improvement to the Gantt chart functionality of Redmine, but it seems there are still a few issues. Here are my observations:

  1. When altering the start or due date on an issue it now correctly adjusts the start and due date of any related tasks that 'precede' or 'follow', which is great. I'm slightly confused why Redmine doesn't already handle this correctly.
  2. The arrows are a good addition to the visual layout
  3. Since installing the plugin, I now can't 'slide' the specific issue bars on the Gantt chart as I could previously through #2024. The hand curser icon no longer appears
  4. The recent fix in Redmine core (r4913) which truncated long issue subjects has been lost (see image attached)
  5. After changing a start or a due date through the Gantt chart interface using #2024 you still need to manually refresh the browser before it correctly displays (I think this is an issue with #2024, rather than this plugin)

Having the ability to quickly change start and due dates with inter-related issues through an easy to use interface is a must have for me. This plugin seems to be a good step in the right direction, however it would be great if the developers of this plugin and #2024 could get together to resolve some of these outstanding issues and maybe bundle all the changes into one plugin.

This plugin seems pretty cool. It's a shame it doesn't seem to support 2.1.x. Any plans for that? That would be great news!

This more recent fork (last update 5 Dec 2013) , it says 'Tested with Redmine versions: ... 1.4, 2.2, 2.3'

Hi

I would like to use the plugin but it doesn't seem to support 3.2.3.

Will it be possible to fix it ?

if you have time - why not try it out on V3 and find out what error messages it throws.

You might spark interest from some coders (I'm not one, sorry) , to look at a fix.
