Use of Milestones with Advanced Roadmap

Added by Everett Griffiths almost 10 years ago

I added the "Advanced Roadmap" plugin, but I'm not sure how this is intended to be used. I can see all the milestones I created under the newly created "Roadmap" tab, but I can't seem to group issues into milestones. Am I missing something?

I'd prefer to not set up myriad sub-projects, but one way or the other, I need to get issues grouped into sensible containers.

Any suggestions?

Really? Nobody? I don't know about anyone else, but when I sit down to start a project, one of the first things I do is start blocking out milestones and dates to get everyone's calendar in sync. The fact that I can't do this in RedMine means the software is severely limited... I can't use it for some clients because of this. Honestly... how is everyone else handling this? I can't be the only one scratching my head about this.

I've never tried the Advanced Roadmap plugin. We generally just use the standard "versions" feature, which includes a date, and to which issues can be assigned. What else do you need?

Same here, I even edited the language file so that the versions are called milestones in the UI.

Brilliant idea to change the language file. Can you tell me where the language file is? And can you confirm which definitions I need to change?

I tried editing the /config/locales/en.yml file, but that didn't seem to have any effect. Is that the right place? Do I have to clear out the cache afterwards?

That's the right file already, but you need to restart your red mine server for the changes to be picked up. I basically just searched for version and changed all occurrences that "sounded" right. One caveat though: wiki versions use the same string, so you'll end up with wiki milestones, but I can live with that.

Thanks! All restarted and good now. I'd forgotten about that touch file.

Yeah, I read that thread in its entirety, which is why I wanted to have both versions and milestones, but I'm happy with having just Versions now that I've renamed them to MIlestones.
