The plugin calculates how much work each user would have to do per day in order to hit the deadlines for all his issues.
It also calculates this information for a user-group.
It calculates issues (number and hours) that are behind schedule and calculates issues that are unplanned (number and hours) so far.

To be able to do all this calculations, the issues start date, due date and estimated time must be filled in.
Issues that have not filled in one of these fields will be shown in the overview, but the workload resulting from these issues will be ignored.

It is tested with redmine 4.2, but will probably run with other versions (at least 3.0) too.
If not, please drop me a note or fix the problem and create a pull request.

Please refer to the on github for more details.

- it works on 3.2.x
- When task list is collapsed and the Project thas has overdue task, it would be great to have an indicator (icon or colored differently)
- I need an "expand all" button and "collapse all" button
