Plugin benefits against common Redmine

  2. Standard Active Directory snap-ins will be enough to create a hierarchical structure of the company (the structure of departments and structure of users). You do not have to extend the schema, or perform other additional configuration of Active Directory.
  3. Information about the employee will be automatically updated in Redmine.


Each employee will be able to assign itself a deputy on vacation or on absence from work. Deputy will automatically get rights based on roles and hierarchical structure of the company. This function relieve the system administrator from the manual transfer of rights and to make transfer of rights more transparent.

  2. The user can easily replace the selected employee with its deputy.


Any user can easily obtain additional background information about the employee by clicking on its name on any page.
