Redmine Time Tracker plugin

Time tracker is a Redmine plugin to ease time tracking when working on an issue. The plugin allows to start/stop a timer on a per user basis. The timer can be started with or without any reference to a Redmine Issue. If you track multiple timelogs without Issue references, you are able to reference Issues later.

Later versions of the plugin will give you a better overview through statistics and add the possabillity to generate invoices. It will be individual adjustable for every user and seperate includable for any project.

Main features to track time referring to an issue should work allready. The advanced features are going to be implemented soon. My goal is to have a release with all main-features within the next two month (that means till 08/2012)


  • Per user time tracking
  • Using known Redmine TimeEntries
  • Overview of spent Time
  • Track free time
  • Book tracked time on tickets
  • Detailed time tracking statistics for team management
  • Status monitor, watch currently tracked time of team
  • Detailed overview of spent time with filter options on (user, project, date)
  • Invoice generation on project basis
  • User specific settings (bookable hours per day, timetracking on/off)
  • Project specific settings (timetracking on/off)
  • Admin page (setup users bookable hours limit, add/remove timelogs)
