Tint issues in index view by age or begin date and due date. Thoroughly tested and does not slow down Redmine or database even on systems with > 50k issues. No migrations needed. Four ages to be colored and three periods of approaching due dates can be chosen.


  • Go to Projects-><your project>->Settings->Modules and tick 'Tint Issues'
  • Go to Administration->Plugins->Redmine Tint Issues and select approriate ages for tickets

note: you may leave input fields empty, f.i. if you just want two colors, one for 'old' and one for 'very old'

  • On issue index page you will see issue rows colored by age having left and side colored bars

How is the color determined?

Redmine Tint Issues looks for an issue start date. If it cannot find a start date, because it is empty, then it uses the issue creation date. Redmine Tint Issues wil calculate the age based on today minus the aforementioned dates and color the issue row accordingly.

If the issue has a due date, then Redmine Tint Issues will put a grey, green, orange or red bar on the left and right side of the issue row. If the issue is overdue, the issue will be marked with two black bars.

The style can easily be changed by amending the style sheet in the assets/styleshets folder. Do not edit the styleshet in the public/plugin_assets folder as it will be overridden each time redmine is rebootet.

Version 1.2.0

You can now choose colors with a color chooser for each issue age. There is also a choice if the issue age should be based on creation date or on the date of last update.

Have fun!
