A Redmine Plugin to Work with MS Project Plugin Redmine Connector(https://conveniencable.com/download). It's not a XML/MPP import/export tools. It's more convenient and powerful than any import/export style tools. It make redmine as a data center for MS Project.

Key features:
  1. You can load/merge tasks from redmine and save tasks to redmine by one-click.
  2. Parent/Subtask and Relation(FS/FF/SF/SS) is saved automatically.
  3. You can almost mapping all the standard and custom fields between Microsoft Project and Redmine. The Redmine project members is auto loading to Microsoft Project as resources. For redmine selectable fields, it will auto create selectable dropdown in Microsoft Project's mapped fields.
  4. When a task is deleted, you can decide whether delete the issue.
  5. It's smart: Default values is filled when a task is create, Only the changed tasks are saved.



I think it's workable on all 2.x, 3.x and 4.x Redmine versions. Just I don't have so many Redmine installations to test.

Great to see a plugin like this! I hope it will develop in the future. Unfortunately, it has been successfully launched on only one PC so far. The rest of the users have an unclear problem with access to projects in Redmine.
