Target version:-


It would be great if there would be possibility to define default columns to display for each project separately. Right now it is very unconvenient to have one setting for all projects. We have projects for different areas and thus default fields should be different for each area.

BTW, it is idea for plugin. I believe this one would be relatively easy to implement.

Reverted incorrect closure due to difficult to follow issue relationships.

I wish I could help, though my RoR dev knowledge is very limited... however, willing to run tests

I have wrote small plugin which implements this feature. Details can be found on the forum: http://www.redmine.org/boards/3/topics/11764

+1 for this feature. This seems like something that should be a core feature. I will give Vitaly's plugin a try.

I really need this to use Redmine for different groups of users!

#9 Updated by Nicklas Westerholm over 5 years ago


I'm in need of this feature as well. Any progress?

Please check latest version of my plugin:


I have ability to define filters/columns based on user preferences.

I think this would work a lot better as a core feature. The plugin above (redmine_default_columns) probably doesn't work out of the box with the latest Redmine (currently 1.3.2) anymore (I've patched the plugin a lot). It also breaks some functionality in Redmine 1.3+ (e.g. modal dialog box for CSV export).

+1 to a core feature as well

Every project (for me) needs different defaults for the Issues page. I'm using the default queries per project plugin, but its not intuitive for new users and I'm not sure if it works with the Redmine versions newer than 2.0. This would be helpful to have as a core feature.

This feature could be a new field on the project settings page, possibly labeled "Issues default query" with a dropdown of custom queries defined in the project. The Issues tab would by default open the custom query specified by this setting, or if it is not set then use the global defaults.

Would be really great

#17 Updated by Evan Wolf about 2 years ago

I would Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love this feature! Currently needs a plugin, and my admin will not install it! If this functionality was built in I would kiss the devs. It's the only thing missing from Redmine, from a usability standpoint.

+1 ideally for core

The desired columns could be set in the query
