Favorite Projects plugin helps you to organize projects and access them easily.

We had about 50 active projects in Redmine, and it was quite inconvenient to search for them in the right corner jumpbox. So we created this plugin as a solution.

  • Table view projects list
  • Quick links to project modules
  • Favorite projects for jumpbox (near the global search)
  • Works only in the production environment
  • Free to download and use

Project Jumpbox
This plugin replaces Redmine projects view and adds abitity to select projects in the projects jump-box, that is easily visible in right-top corner of the interface.

Arrange your dashboard
If you ever had more than a few projects in Redmine, you know it can complicate to move between them. Well, not anymore! Create and use custom queries with filters. Use tags. Add stars to the projects. All to keep you organized and more efficient.

Couldn't install it with redmine up agile, or redmine up tag.
Error with redmine_crm.

Don't look better than the default, and didn't find how to have tags.

When is version compatible with Redmine 5.0 planned? Currently it's not possible to update Redmine with this plugin installed.

Very useful plugin.
The project tags on the right side are part of it or this is something separate?

  by about 5 years ago

This is a must have. Redmine is awesome. But the project overview page is horrible. This plugin fixes this problem and make multiple projects way easier to manage.

  by Ricky Wu over 7 years ago

I installled success with 3.3, but the search result is blank and only show one star icon for each project, no other more information, any suggestion?

  by ex vito over 8 years ago


Is there any chance of seeing this plugin updated to support Redmine 3.x?... If not, would you recommend any alternative?

Thanks for a very useful plugin. :)

works with 2.6?

  by Szabolcs Szasz almost 10 years ago

Very nice to be able to select favorite projects!
But it fails to parse textile markup in the project descriptions (showing the raw source text only)!
Also: too narrow date field always broken to 2 lines (Chromium 25), uglifying the list.)

  by Ivan Rapekas almost 10 years ago

Incompatible with redmine_improved_searchbox. On some themes the font of description is too small. Works perfectly on dev environment!
