Is it possible to set a deadline for the workflows?

  by Lu Pa 10 months ago

work very well and it's usefull for non-software dev uses of redmine ;)

  by Robert Schneider 10 months ago

Very comprehensive. UI is a bit heavy (many frames/borders) and the workflow could be a bit more emphazised.

  by Benoît Bleuzé 10 months ago

The workflow management could get some more intuitive UI love, but apart from that, work quite well.
