New to Redmine

Added by Barry Elder over 8 years ago

Hi,

I have spent most of the afternoon playing with the demo and reading the wiki information, I've got a few hours to go before i fully understand everything, so bear with me!

I do however have a few questions for you all.

I'm looking to understand how customisable redmine actually is, i have a few questions.

1. Is there a back end method of seeing all the issues, from all projects?

2. Milestones, in our projects we have standard milestones for our projects with dates attached - Initiation, Solution Design, Deploy, App install Go-Live etc, each have agreed forcast dates assigned to it - how easy is it to set up such a stucture, from playing i think this would go into activities? but is that right? how else could i achieve this?

3. following on from previous question, each of the milestone dates is a predetermined set of days, is there a method of automating this from the date either the project was created or the Solutio nDesign milestone was completed? i.e. app install phase is 52 days.

finally.

4. each of the above milestones has many fields containted within them, customer name, business unit, assigned project lead etc - would this volume of fields be a possiblity under each milestone?

Thanks for taking time to read and hopefulyl respond :)

Hi Barry,

Under projects on the right top there is a link "View all issues" (https://domain.tld/issues

You can set custome fields for versions.

Thanks for responding - i'm finding it a little hard to get my head round redmines.... I am looking to achieve the following, is it achievable?

The input will be a list of physical servers which need to be migrated to a virtual platform.

I am looking to have several stage gates, including..

Design
Order
App install
UAT
Handover
Decommission.

Within each stage gate will be several requirements, for example..

Basic project overview
-Customer name
-Customer email
-Servers involved with project

Design
-Physical design (current) - specs to be inputted, server OS, memory, cpu etc
-Document storage, customer approval, High level design, Due diligence reports etc.

Order
-Order number
-Virtual design (new) - specs to be inputted, server OS, memory, cpu etc

App install
-Application contacts
-Vendor contacts

UAT
-Tester contacts

Handover
-Submission dates

Decommission.
-Request number

Obviously there would be many more required fields however, I'd like to keep simple for now.

All of the above would have to be constrained by the project timelines, each migration must take a set amount of days and each stage gate listed above is covered by a set amount of man days, for example app install must always be within 52 days.

This is a very simplistic view of my requirements, granted but no point going to low level until I understand whether the above is possible.
