The plugin can be used for periodic actions that occur during project development process. It automatically generates issue assigned to the next user in the carousel queue every specified time period. You can set users queue, issue settings and time period. Redmine Carousel depends on business_time gem, so you can specify your working hours and holidays, so issues won't be generated if there is nobody in the office.
