It would be very nice to have an important project management feature implemented into redmine:
i'm missing to have an overview about the workload on my project members.

this would be good to avoid overloading of single developers and distribute incoming tickets / tasks among all developers who can take care of this problem.
this might could be mananaged from a few parameters daily working-hours / weekly working hours and a calculation of the sum of all estimated times assigned to the single users.

example: you've got a working time of 40 hours defined. team member A has been assigned tickets in this period of time which have an estimated effort of 80 hours. so the project manager would see that he's got a workload of 200% in this week.

perhaps it would be possible to enable a "warning" if new tickets are beeing assigned to a developer and it's workload is too high so that a new ticket would stress his workload.

i hope it could make clear what i'm thinking about. hope to hear your opinion on this topic!

I also need something like this to track the workload on my developers team and redistribute tasks. I tried to find some plugin that would do it, but the closest I found was the Workload Plugin. Unfortunately, it doesn´t work with the latest release (1.1.1), and the developer stopped to support it.

This is indeed the nr. 1 reason we haven't implemented Redmine. Looking forward to this feature!

We are evaluating Redmine in a few pilot projects and started missing this feature very quickly.
