One problem I’ve noticed with fast paced projects is that details can get lost in all the activity. Shane and Peter noticed that with their Redmine, many times a question would be asked but someone would never answer it. To solve this problem, they sponsored the development of Redmine Question plugin. This plugin will help users keep track of the questions they are asking and what questions others are asking them.
- User can ask a question with an issue note
- Question can be assigned to be answered by a project member
- Filters for the issue list:
- Question is assigned to
- Question was asked by
- Question column for the Issue list showing a preview of all the open questions asked on an issue
- Email notification when questions are asked and answered
Getting the plugin
A copy of the plugin can be downloaded from Little Stream Software or from GitHub.
The question plugin is very easy to use. Just update an issue and select a Member from the question select box right below the issue notes.
This plugin is licensed under the GNU GPL v2.
