Redmine Backlogs

Added by Mark Maglana almost 14 years ago

A few updates on the Backlogs plugin for Redmine as of 2010 Aug 2:

  • Each sprint now has a taskboard where you can attach one or more tasks to a story. This uses Redmine's underlying mechanism to relate one issue to another.
  • You can now create stories directly in the Backlogs interface.
  • Sprint/Product Backlogs and Taskboard now have real-time updates. Change one item and other users viewing the same board will automatically get updated.
  • User colors. Tasks are now colored depending on who's assigned to it. Users can change their color anytime via their account page.
  • Bug fixes and other enhancements

For a live demo, go to this site. (login as demo, password demo)

If you find bugs, please file it here.

I just wanted to update everyone on the website for the plugin at

That'll be the URL for now until we get a TLD going. Should be up soon.

I know you posted a link to file a bug. But i hope this is a bit faster maybe here, and maybe it isn't a bug just a missconfiguration.
I installed redmine 1.0 stable and the latest backlogs and all the dependecies.
Everything working fine but burndown charts with the following error message.

ActionView::TemplateError (undefined method `series' for nil:NilClass) on line #2 of vendor/plugins/redmine_backlogs/app/views/charts/_burndown.html.erb:
