This plugin calculates the workload of team members based on the issues assigned to them. Its development was powered by Sevenstax GmbH, based on the DNOiSE WorkLoad Plugin. It has has been almost completely rewritten since then - the main advantages over the original plugin are clean(er) code and improved performance.

It is tested with redmine 2.3, but will probably run with other versions (at least 2.0) too. If not, please drop me a note or fix the problem and create a pull request.

Its purpose is to show the workload of project members, making it easy to identify overloaded project members. It only uses default redmine data, so users don't have to fill in any new fields. In order to use the plugin in a useful way, the following fields should be filled in for issues:

  • Start time
  • End time (deadline)
  • Estimated number of hours.

The plugin allows to choose a set of users to show the workload for. For each of these users, the workload is shown in total, per project and per issue. Click the arrow on the left hand side to open the more detailed views.

Please refer to the Readme.rst on github for more details.

Installation notes

  • Clone the github-repo into your plugins-directory and restart redmine (no database migrations needed).
  • Go into the adminstration area and adapt the plugin settings. They heavily influence display and calculation of the workload.

- 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
