Bulk Time Entry plugin v0.3.0 released

Bulk Time Entry screenshot

I’m happy to announce that I’ve just uploaded a new release of the Redmine Bulk Time Entry plugin. This is a bug fix release that should support the released version of Redmine as well as the latest trunk version.


The plugin can be download from the Little Stream Software project or from GitHub.


You can see more details on the Changelog and Roadmap pages.

What’s next

The next release should have a couple of new features, including some User Interface updates to make entering time even faster. If you have an idea for one, leave a comment here or open a feature request.


If you need help, my Redmine bug tracker is open to the public and you are welcome to ask for help there.

    interesting and useful idea, but (there’s always a but ;) )

    * doesn’t work out of the box on 0.8.4 / trunk; I had to patch BulkTimeEntriesController:

      def get_issues(project_id)
        @issues = Issue.find(:all, :conditions => { :project_id => project_id[1] })

    * when adding another entry, it would be much more useful if the project and the activity defaulted to the same

    One thing that is missing in Redmine is the ability to see how much time you have booked that week – almost like a calendar. It would be great to have that on the same screen as the bulk time entry so you can see where you’ve missed an entry.

      Redmine comes with a My Page widget called Spent Time that might be useful. It will show the time you’ve logged over the past 7 days.

      There is also a fork of my Timesheet plugin on Github.com that will draw the logged time onto a calendar, so you can easily see how you’re logging time. I’m going to be pulling these updates into the official Timesheet plugin soon.

        Excellent! That will certainly help.

        I’ve implemented Redmine in the company I work for and we use your Timesheet plug-in as that gives a good overview of what everyone has done. Putting logged time onto a calendar will also help. The Bulk Time Entry is another area I’m looking to to make it easier for people to record what they’ve been putting their effort into.

        I’m new to Ruby on Rails and have just started writing a plugin to allow tasks to be signed off (particularly for work done onsite). I’ve been amazed at what the infrastructure allows you to do in a short time.
