I really feel it is necessary to have more flexibility in what content is displayed on the Redmine Home page and the project overview pages. They are of course the first pages that users see, so I'm sure project managers will want to be able to choose exactly what is displayed.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Allow a wiki page to be the top page (to be honest, even just this would be better than the current pages)
  • Wiki macros to display the summary boxes (members, latest news etc)
  • Make them customizable, similar to My page --> Personalize this page
  • Have wiki/markup content as one of the customization options

I wanted part of this -- wiki content on my home page -- so I made Patch #1052. You may want to try it.

I vote for the ability for project managers to edit the project overview page, exactly as a user can use My Page > Personalize this page. Similarly, administrators should be able to edit the Redmine Home Page.
This solution is usable "out of the box" with almost no learning curve, and is very intuitive even for non tech user (which is an important advantage for redmine adoption).
Allowing to display a wiki page and providing Wiki macros to display summary boxes would be a very good possibility for more advanced customization.

A more dynamic project overview page would be great. This would improve the acceptance of redmine in the management level I think.
