Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend only for internal and confidential projects where number of users are very limited. There are some issue with scalability, I found the server was running too slow where most of the team are trying to access it , Many times I received " Something went wrong" I wouldnt recomend to onboard your partners or external team with redmine solution.

What do you like best?

I like the fact that you can do projects, sub-projects, groups of projects. It is easy to use by everyone involved in the project. Simple and clear, we see the evolution of a project. The user roller system. The fact that it has many plugins for graphs Gant, Agile, etc Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are no things I don't like. It has everything you need for a tracking system, even for use as Project Management with hourly task estimates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For developers looking for a Project Management and Tracking System estimation system, Redmine is a very well developed system that manages to integrate everything needed in tracking and developing the tasks and phases of a project. Since it is free, it makes a very good program that will be taken into consideration when looking for such software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it in everyday work. At Redmine we do the planning of tasks from a Project. I then assign tasks to each developer. We have tasks only for informing clients, others for developers. Through Redmine we keep in touch with customers. It helps a lot in all situations. If a new developer has to enter the project, it is easy to track the evolution of the tasks involved. A great advantage. Plus the Agile system and task scheduling help me in my daily work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Redmine is a fast and easy-to-use task management system that's great for Agile development and small team project management. It has Integrations with time tracking software and the app is rock solid. One of my favorite features compared to other task management software is infinite child tasks. Any task in any project can have an infinite number of subtasks, each with their own dependencies, assignments, and due dates. This allows you to take big and complex projects and turn them into bite-sized check boxes, which is a exactly what a task management system is supposed to do. They also handle attachments really well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Redmine, despite being really useful and efficient to carry out task management is not perfect because it is a tool that has a really high learning curve so to understand each function it is necessary to take time to navigate its interface and gradually getting to know the options it offers and thus find the workflow that best suits the needs of the user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps to keep an order in all the personal and professional projects, they can be mixed in the same workspace, although they can also be carried separately, it is also very good for the project manager, since it allows them to organize their entire team of Work efficiently and monitor the progress of the project at any time.

What do you like best?

Easy Redmine includes most wanted features as drag & drop Gantt, global Gantt across all projects, project templates, graphs & charts, customizable dashboards, chat and much more. It is further extensible with plugins for Resource management, Agile, Finance, CRM, Help Desk and Strategic management. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

can not find defects in the usability and in the interaction of the purposes of Redmine because it is a very good tool, but only lacking integrations with current tools. As for example, Bitbucket and other tools that are more current and that together I believe would make the tool even better. I think the installation of plugins that is archaic (uploading via FTP) is bad too, I would like it to be a simpler way, user friendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Some people may perceive Redmine as underpowered after considering only the minimal required feature set. But, as described above, there’s plenty of room for customization, creative shortcuts, and mobility that save time, or powerful extensions that increase accuracy, efficiency, and quality throughout the software lifecycle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Redmine’s been around for a while and is one of the best tools in its segment, especially for the clients’ side of web software development. Redmine’s a flexible project management platform, an issue tracker, Wiki, time logger, Gantt charting mechanism, and a slew of countless other functionalities extendable by admin configuration or integrated external modules.

What do you like best?

The task boards are good and easy to create. I have been using this tool to run my project using Kanban boards. It is easy to maintain and most of the important details that are necessary to be transparent in the offshore and onshore model is easily configurable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

On the downsides, the look and feel is below basic and gives the feel of a age old tool to manage projects. In the given trend it is very necessary that the tool appears smart and bright. The workflows to be configured are also very confusing. May be it would help to have some quick video so that if any new user watches it, they can as well learn or watch a quick tutorial to help them understand how the tool works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are getting into the Agile mode and are looking for a cost effective tool that offers basic features, then you may definitely try this product. The tool is really good if you plan to adopt Kanban because I personally see it serves the purpose. The burn up and burn down charts are basic, will help you track most of the efforts and team performance easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly the onshore/offshore model collaboration is done using this tool. The only ease of using I see is the creation, allocation, updates of tasks especially on kanban boards. They look pretty simple and a few days hands on is sufficient to know how to use the tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

If I talk about the importance of this tool, I would say it is one of the popular project management software available in the market. Redmine organize our work in efficient ways. We can easily handle our priorities and deadlines. It also allows us to create visual project plans in order to see how every step works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The system and dashboards could be not too freindly for a begineer. It lacks a 'welcome tour' to help new folks get used to it. Sometimes I don't receive a notification of an issue I'm tagged in. Seems to be a bug or malfunction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

According to my experience, I would say Redmine has more helpful features than other applications keeps for project management. It keeps projects track by its advance functions and gather team on one place. Its mobile application presents more convenient environment for doing work in efficient ways.

In my opinion Redmine is absolutely a wonderful way of setting deadlines for our projects effectively. Moreover, I love its excellent ability of keeping our work flow well organized. It has introduced so many ways for checking team's tasks in most probable ways. Additionally it is very easy for performing multiple tasks at the same time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It might actually hinder you instead of help you manage tasks at times. If you use it too much and create multiple tasks you will end up with too many and confuse yourself. Use it wisely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In terms of product backlog management I think it ticks all the boxes. You've literally got all the functionality you would need to manage a product backlog successfully. Estimating tickets, time-boxing, prioritising, are all great features (a long with many others) that I find very useful and helpful to my day-to-day work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

To begin with of all its open source and its simple to oversee as well as design gigantic plug ins on require premise. I would too say that it gives an upper hand to engineers in effortlessly following tickets and oversee them in a controlled way. Community bolster is additionally an included advantage based on encounter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No so much of a disadvantage but it base plan isn't as adaptable as commercial instruments. The UI/UA plan is easy-to-use and basic but not effortlessly controlled out-of-the-box. Setup of Ruby and Rails requires mastery in that environment. It's not as adaptable for utilize as a Back Work area application. The authoritative interface isn't as refined and does not offer as much usefulness as a few other instruments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We run all of our extend administration with Redmine. For many of our company open source ventures that we have on Github -- we utilize Github Issues, and it sucks in comparison. Helps us to our time following, issue administration, reviews, and bolsters our exceedingly spry and custom handle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
