Passing a document around as part of an issue

Added by Greg Roberts over 11 years ago

A common task at my company is for a word document to be passed around a work group. Some people will edit the document and some will not.

I've tried simply attaching the file to the issue but that results in a cumbersome edit process. When you click on the attached file it is opened "Read Only". The next person has to save off the document, edit it, and then reattach it. The database grows with each persons edit if they don't delete the old copy.

I've tried to create a hyperlink in the issue that points to the file out on our network. Redmine doesn't convert it as it's not a web link or email address. I couldn't figure out a way to use preformatted text to manually create the link.

What is a clean way to provide my users with this functionality?

You can try the Redmine WebDav plugin!
