Alejandro S.

excelenete project manager

2018-05-21

excellent experience with this software, work on more than 7 projector using it, I recommend it

Pros

*Management of multiple projects *Customization of projects *Flexible task tracking system *Integration in code repositories *Use of calendar and Gantt chart

Cons

Redmine is a very powerful and mature project manager, despite its "little" development time, it is also inspired by trac, so we are facing a very flexible tool in itself, and quite stable.

Best Project Tracker/Management/Team Tool bar none

2018-06-06

Excellent project/tracker management - faster execution of projects

Pros

You can get the bare bones redmine up and running in minutes using a bitnami stack. Out of the box it's built for speed and simplicity, but if you are prepared to put some minimal effort in to add plugins, you can add many features, all free, that take it to the next level.

Cons

It's built to be modular and extensible, so if you don't like the UI, you can simply add themes, if you want it to do additional stuff like tight email integration, agile (yes there are multiple free versions), helpdesk, Work Breakdown Structures, Charts, fully customized menu bar, repositories, Vault, Excellent Wiki, integrations to Slack and other ticket systems etc - you can do all of that.

Out of time

2019-12-03

Issue tracking and project management as it was ten years ago.

Pros

Unfortunately there's not too much to like about Redmine. The best thing is probably the fact that is free but even bugzilla does a better job.

Cons

For starters, the interface is obsolete and the overall experience is a misery.

A project manager and activities, very detailed and simple

2018-07-04

project management and control

Pros

redmine is an online project manager, very good for project management, task management, among others, integrates very well with windows active directory, for the management of users, also allows you to manage statistics of tasks performed by half of graphics, pictures and more

Cons

the free version of redmine is simple, both processes and graphical interface, the truth I do not like its graphical interface, I think it is very simple, but I guess the business version if it is more friendly

Best Project Management Tool for Beginners

2019-07-06

Mainly keeping track of my freelancing projects to ensure correct deadlines.

Pros

The software has plenty of features such as project trees and gantt chart development to help ease the process.

Cons

This isn't much of let down but if i were to be picky i would say that the interface looks a bit outdated as the software is old but on the other hand be old and outdated makes the system a bit more easy to work with.

Great for internal use - A bit of a learning curve

2019-02-28

The watchers option is fantastic, however the interface itself leaves little to be desired

Pros

It’s great for project management and tracking progress while being able to hold team memebrs culpable.

Cons

There’s a learning curve and it’s not entirely intuitive, but this lends to its customizable nature. It’s not aesthetically pleasing, and can be tedious to rework the system in order to have it achieve what we need for work orders.

Easy and intuitive project management tool

2021-06-20

My team began to use Redmine a few weeks agoo, and it has been very usefull to follow up projects and tasks.

Pros

Simple but efective, sometimes project management tools become complex and consume more time than projects themselves.

Cons

Graphical interface could be improved a little bit, some combos boxes and check boxes look a little bit old fashioned

My overall experience with Red mine is bad and do not recommend this over other project management software.

Pros

It has many features that are essential to project management like grant charts, assigning tasks and hosted locally.

Cons

There's no notification system also.

Solid no frills project management software

2017-09-23

It got the job done, and had just enough features to get us through our day to day tasks and projects.

Pros

Very simple interface, quick layout for project and task entry, good filtering system for sorting through tasks by users, status, etc.

Cons

Feels somewhat dated, doesn't keep track of tasks and updates by the minute like some of the newer or more advanced softwares.

User/mid size companies want a free bug tracking tool then I would recommend to use Redmine tool.

2018-03-08

This is a very good tool for any small or mid sized companies and then need a free bug tracking tool then absolutely I recommend to use Redmine.

Pros

It is having the simple interface and quick layout for project and even task entry and also good filtering system for sorting through tasks.

Cons

So definitely at the time of creation you have to take care of the bug. UI Layout is looks like outdated and we cannot feel like working on a new or advanced software.

Good open source ticketing software

2018-05-13

A useful ticketing system as well as a time tracking system for free, as it is open source.

Pros

The ticket's features are very useful for teamwork as you can see who worked on what task and when.

Cons

Redmine can be quite complicated to use, for one not used to software like this. For example we used to open parts of the software for clients when we were doing fine tuning on applications and websites, and often the client needed a small training to be able to create ticket and answer questions on the ticket.

Manage your projects

2019-09-21

I use this tool daily for the control of tasks and hours dedicated to the projects in which I participate.

Pros

You can manage projects easily and efficiently, it allows you to control metrics such as estimated time spent by teams or by individual, you can create tasks and follow up on specific project functionalities and then you can get reports of time spent for each category in the project and this allows to make better informed decisions for the business.

Cons

The user experience design should be improved since sometimes the functionalities of the tool are not intuitive and this causes some time to be wasted.

Redmine - Mine full of possibilities

2020-10-19

But its archaic UI, confusing UX and a headache during deployment and frequent downtimes can seriously impede your project management process.

Pros

Redmine is a project tracking tool with good intentions.

Cons

I really dislike the UI and UX. Granted, you have some themes but that doesn't help its case.
