We'd like to request the ability to set the landing page people see when logging in, configurable on a per user or per project basis (set by user), or globally by groups or system wide set by the admin user or manager-role.

For example, we use the Stuff-To-Do module, it would be nice to have our developers land on that page when logging in, as it is the most useful to them, but in some cases others might want to land on a project issues page.

I'm guessing this could be done via a plugin, but if others like it might be a valuable core feature.

The ability to control the page a user sees when opening a (sub)project would be a real boon for us as a general (eg settings) item.

Typical use case: We have subprojects that are ONLY wikis - no isses or anything else - so our users only want to see the main wiki page on opening the subproject. We link the wiki on the overview page that always appears by default but that's one more click than anyone really wants!

agreed, we would like to assign default project for users, so when they login they go there.

The plugin method works fine for us until such time as it can be an official part of core. We are trying to avoid patches except where critical because we don't have the change control needed yet to ensure on every upgrade the patches move forward with the upgrade.

A couple things to note, a person could set the landing page, such that redmine constantly redirects to itself, or to some non-related url. Don't ask me who would do it, because I'm sure there is someone out there that would or mistype something and it goes somewhere else. :) So some validation checking on if what they enter exists, and some restriction on where it could go to.

If someone does enter the wrong item, the admin of course can always clean it up. But do we really want to bug the admins? :)

On the per project basis, it overrides the Overview tab, meaning if for example the landing page of the project is set to the Wiki page of the project, and you click the Overview tab, it takes you always to the wiki. I think users still should be able to go to overview, but if they select the projects from the project drop down or Projects link list.

For now it works for us.

IMHO it's best to implement features from https://github.com/biow0lf/redmine_landing_page
to the core.

redmine_landing_page is convenient , because we can set the user and project initial page.

I fixed a DB migration error in Redmine 4.1.
git clone https://github.com/y503unavailable/redmine_landing_page -b redmine-4
