Voting for this!

#2 Updated by tof b almost 15 years ago

I really like to have that functionnality too. I actually use
slimtimer to track my site but it gives me lots of headaches
to synchronise both lists

#3 Updated by Peter Bonnell almost 15 years ago

We just migrated from TRAC (so easy!).

We'd love to see this at the issue level.

#4 Updated by Maxim Krušina almost 15 years ago

We migrated from Trac. The name of Plugin was worklog 0.1 - it
was really handy for lot of poeople from our team.

PS: there is also Trac plugin, which integrates Trac with SlimTimer
(I think ;)

#5 Updated by Ricardo Trindade about 15 years ago

This would be really nice. One of the Trac time tracking plugins
has this, and it works great

Jean-Philippe Lang pointed out this request where I should post,

We use RedMine at work, but as a programmer I have to run a separate
tool to monitor my time I am spending on an issue. I was browsing
a bit when I found SlimTimer (http://www.slimtimer.com). I think
this would be a great feature for RedMine. I would be great if
you started to work on an issue, you could click a link like
'start' and the timer would automatically report/add the time
worked on the issue.

This would be very cool. Relates or extends #924

+1 as we are actually looking for a solution to this very issue. After using Redmine for a few months, we've found tracking time to be an issue and the ability to click start/stop to track time would be very helpful.

#10 Updated by Arthaey Angosii over 14 years ago


#11 Updated by Tom Robinson over 14 years ago

+1 It would be good if when you add a new issue and start the timer, it automagically stopped the existing timer, logged that time, and started the new issue timer.

I've related patch #1650 to this issue since it would resolve it...

#13 Updated by Jase Roberts almost 14 years ago

Oops, I intended to place this comment here yesterday, but instead posted it in 1650:

We've just started using Redmine in our web shop, and also would really like to see this feature be officially implemented in the trunk. Discussion on this is currently fragmented here, plus:
Patch: http://www.redmine.org/issues/show/1650
Patch/fork discussion: http://www.redmine.org/boards/1/topics/show/2352
Idea for feature: http://www.redmine.org/boards/1/topics/show/1027

Having only skimmed these latter three, I'm not completely clear on the status of the patch (but very much appreciate the effort that has gone into it). Would be great to see this in trunk. We're currently also using SlimTimer, but repetition of data entry is a pain and prone to error.

We are working on timer function that integrates with Redmine for our own company, check it out here: http://www.eggplantdigital.cn/build-tools/our-new-web-app-eggplant-timer-for-redmine/

If you are interested please let me know:

#16 Updated by Markus Knittig over 13 years ago

Looks good. Is this implemented by a plugin or a patch?

I've been busy keeping #1650 uptodate with trunk way-back and therefor quite curious about the thing you are developing... I am keen to see any informational updates for this "thing" in near future. ;)

It seems to be an independant application runnign along with Redmine...

#18 Updated by Yannick Warnier over 13 years ago

Using SlimTimer idependently from RedMine would ensure we can log time in RedMines of various departments or various companies at the same time.
I'd be pleased to be kept informed of any work done on this (as I might get into this soon).

#19 Updated by GOYELLO IT Services about 13 years ago


We have recently developed plugin that could suite your needs. Its main feature is the time recording, but it also works as daily planing dashboard.
You can find all the info about it in here.


#20 Updated by Mischa The Evil over 12 years ago

There now also exists a dedicated KISS (as in feature-specs) plugin solution for this issue as in the TimeTracker plugin.

As of today Alex Dodkin and the EggPlant Digital Team seems to have stalled their activities on developing their solution which they mentioned at 440#note-15.

The solution of GOYELLO IT Services noted in 440#note-19 seems to do a great job but it also seems a bit "overblown" and almost bloated due to the way the plugin was derived from Eric's Stuff-To-Do plugin.

Another related work-in-progress plugin is the My Effort plugin which is first mentioned by Nanda Palaniswamy in 4035#note-1.


#21 Updated by Maxim Kim over 9 years ago

Is there any up-to-date plugin which does timer job? All abouve is 3 years old wihtout support of new Redmine versions.
