Redmine Resource Management Made For Work Utilization

A FREE version is in an online demo at & the downloadable version is at If you need to test the plugin in your Redmine environment, just contact Redmine X for the evaluation version.

This Redmine plugin is all about the utilization of work & employees. It shows the time allocation of particular employees on various tasks and thanks to its drag & drop feature, you can easily change either the start & due dates of tasks or their durations. Time allocation spreads proportionally across the whole task and a manager is then able to override it. See for all features.

2.1.1 (2022-06-01)

Compatible with Redmine 5.0.x, 4.2.x, 4.1.x.

  • Bug fixes
    • External resources fix - user workload from other projects was not loading.
      Wrong resources calculation after new task was created.
      UID was not changed in the gantt.resourcesStore after new task was saved (and its id was changed from the temporary new task id to the redmine task id).
  • Requirements: RedmineX Assets v2.0.0. which is included

2.1.0 (2022-05-04)

Compatible with Redmine 4.2.x, 4.1.x.

  • New features
    • Warning added to the task tooltips if task is in the past and has non zero remaining time.
    • Project estimated hours distribution default can be now set in the resources settings. Individual projects can be set to 'default' value, which corresponds to the resources settings.
    • The timeline range is increased if a new task is created outside of the existing range, or an existing task is modified in a way that would put it outside of the existing range.
    • User names are now presented in the format which corresponds to the Redmine settings.
    • Lightbox now can be closed using Escape key (see Rx Assets).
    • Support for Redmine 5.0.0.
  • Changes and updates
    • User, Group and Project warning icon tooltips updated - warning message changed to 'User has one or more problematic tasks'.
    • ArelFunctionsHelper method names were updated in order to correspond to the new names in ArelFunctionsHelper in Rx Assets.
    • Project total estimated and spent time calculation removed from the backend, because calculation of these values took very long time. Values are now calculated on the frontend => loading time of the resources was significantly improved.
  • Bug fixes
    • Project filter selects fixed - selects did not support moving of projects on the 3rd (and greater) level of the project tree (child of a child of a root project).
    • Authorization of resources controllers fixed and updated.
    • Tasks cannot be assigned to a user who has a role that does not allow task assignment (due to role settings in Redmine).
    • Tasks are now readonly (including fixed values) when user has no rights to edit them.
    • Adding a new task to a specific user fixed:
    • If a task is added to a specific user (using the plus icon next to their name in resources view), in some cases this is not possible (e.g. the user is not a member of the project). In this case, a notification will be displayed and the lightbox will not open. However, gantt already creates the task and this new task has to be deleted, but this is registered by the saver and this is not correct because this task never actually existed.
      If a task is added to a certain user (with a plus icon next to their name in resources view), then if the task is created by the same user to whom the task will be assigned (= the author is the same as the assigned user), then this must be allowed (which was the case before before).
      **Resource values calculation error fixed for users and groups. If a user was dragging a task, in some cases the recalculated distributed hours (from the task) were incorrectly displayed in the user or group body.
      Green resource markers of user and group tasks fixed. Green resource markers were incorrectly displayed in a green color even in the past, where all markers should be only grey.
  • Requirements
  • Requirements: RedmineX Assets v2.0.0. which is included

2.0.2 (2022-01-21)

Compatible with Redmine 4.2.x, 4.1.x.

  • Requirements: RedmineX Assets v2.0.0. which is included

2.0.1 (2022-01-19)

Compatible with Redmine 4.2.x, 4.1.x.

  • Invalid link type error fixed - issue relation 'related to' was not properly implemented in resources.
  • Hours per day setting removed from the resources settings view and from all other locations (init.rb etc.). This setting was replaced by the complex calendar settings in the 2.0.0 version.
  • Requirements: RedmineX Assets v2.0.0. which is included

2.0.0 (2022-01-13)

    • Detailed settings of global calendar and user calendars with the option to select public holidays of the specified country (RedmineX Assets plugin).
    • Display of non-working days (public holidays and vacations) for each task (according to the assigned user).
    • Shift linked tasks according to their individual calendars.
    • Calculate resources according to the user calendars.
  • Zoom levels reworked:
    • Name of the levels now correspond to the time unit displayed on the timeline.
    • Second timeline unit comes always from the higher zoom level (e.g. week for the 'day' level).
    • Quarter timeline unit added.
  • Support for shared milestones added:
    • Shared milestones are displayed for all projects they are shared with.
    • On the global gantt, a shared milestone can be displayed in multiple projects. In this case, moving one of these milestones will move all the others.
    • New milestone filter added to the 'Filters' box to show all, only open or only closed.
  • Several types of distribution of the estimated hours are now available:
    • Even with rounding down to whole hours, half-hours or one decimal place (hours are distributed evenly and then rounded down).
    • From start (hours are distributed from the first available day on the task using the maximum capacity of the days until all estimated hours are distributed).
    • From end (hours are distributed from the last available day on the task using the maximum capacity of the days until all estimated hours are distributed).
  • Distribution type can be set per project and this type is saved to DB.
  • Tooltips have been redesigned to show not only summary information about the task, but also information about the specific day the user is currently pointing to.
  • Bug fixes
  • Toolbar height fixed when sidebar is closed.
  • Wrong calculation of fixed hours on higher zoom levels fixed.
  • Occasional inability to enter fixed hours for a specific day was fixed.
  • Tooltips for users, groups and projects were fixed on the higher zoom levels, where these special tasks always 'cover' the whole time unit on the timeline (as opposed to tasks, which only cover the * portion of the time unit that the task runs).

1.2.1 (2021-09-17)
