Backlogs Plugin for Redmine
A scrum/agile tool. Useful for product planning, sprint planning, and daily stand-ups. For a quick demo try backlogsdemo.morphexchange.com/projects/demo/backlogs by logging in as demo/demo
Extract or clone the plugin to $REDMINE_CORE/vendor/plugins as redmine_backlogs
Run rake db:migrate_plugins from RAILS_ROOT
You will need to enable the Backlogs module per project via Settings > Modules. Also, make check that the right roles have permission to use the module by going to Administration > Roles and Permissions > Permissions Report.
If you have a custom field called “Points” on the issues, that value will be kept in sync with the corresponding Backlog issue points.
Chart Data Generator
You may schedule a cron job to run the rake task named redmine:backlogs_plugin:generate_chart_data. I recommend you run it a few minutes after midnight to ensure that your backlogs have data everyday even when no user views the charts.
