Feature #7080


Alternate default activity in time logging

Estimated time:


We have a general project called Administration, which of the 3 types of activities we have (Design, Development, Support) only Support is enabled. Development is the default set in the Redmine Settings.
Would it be possible to have Redmine select Support when logging time in this case, rather then forcing us to drop it down to select the only activity available?

Maybe a better way of implementing this feature would be to have a per project default activity setting. Different type of projects, admin, hardware or software have different types of activities.

A helpful feature would be to allow each tracker to have a default activity assigned to it. Unless I'm missing something I haven't seen a way to do this through the interface.

For easy to use PM need to customize relationships between Types of Trackers and Activities which can be related to them.
For Example: Support tracker can have next activities: Consulting, Discussion, Configure, Install, Wiki updating,...

Some news here?

I'm wondering if there is a way to show activities (while time tracking) filtered by tracker.



  1. database management
  2. analysis and coordination

time tracking activities:

  1. database creation
  2. database updating
  3. cost estimation
  4. meeting
  5. research

I want that, while I'm tracking time for database management, only 1 and 2 actities are shown (and 1 is selected by default); while I'm tracking time for analysis and coordination I want to see only 3 4 5 (with 3 selected by default).
