This plugin gives you flexibility. I Think the limit is your mind. Permissions and roles is not so clear (Not so important). Logs : There is no log for the records and the actions in this table.

Super! Can you adapt the plugin to 3.4 redmine version ?

  by Marcello Sannai 3 months ago

wonderful! it would be perfect if you could create the table directly from the new issue. when you open a new issue you can add fields to the table.

Great work... It would be nice to allow some tables to be viewable by anonymous users. I wasn't seeing that as an option.

Great work :)
I think tables should behave like custom fields, now You can't assign table to tracker or status like custom field. Table sticks to everything in project
Also empty tables should be minimized, now they take way to much space :/
