Remove default fields on new issue form
It will be great that Redmine allows end-users to remove some default fields. This feature enables that end-users can customize Redmine according to their particular needs and by the way it maximizes the flexibility of the product.
Good bye and congratulations. You are doing a nice job.

I completely agree. This is huge. We're looking for a light-weight scalable issue tracker. We love the idea, but we need to get a base started without it. There's still a lot of cowboy land out here where people are against having hard due dates, and keeping the %complete up-to-date.
We would also like the flexibility to change the start date to "date requested/reported."
Also, to turn off the calendar and gantt features.

+1 on this. If you use Redmine as a client support ticket request system, then it makes no sense to allow the Reporter (Client) role to even see some of these fields like Due Date, estimate, etc. It just confuses them and makes them not love the Redmine system as much as they should.
For now I modified the views/issues/_form.rhtml to hide these fields and also the Assign To field if the user does not have the rights to Assign Watchers. This security option was a rough way to identify all basic client reporter users (versus Client Project Manager role who we decided can set these fields) and that code happened to be easily found and reused in that file.

Thanks for this research. I'll close this issue as a duplicate of the older #1091 which can then also be used as a central place to comment on the feature.
