32 1 Eric Davis
33 1 Eric Davis
There are three panes that can be sorted:
34 1 Eric Davis
35 1 Eric Davis
h3. What I'm doing now
36 1 Eric Davis
37 1 Eric Davis
This pane lists the next 5 issues a user is supposed to be working on.  These issues should be the *most* important issues assigned to the user.  As the user closes an issue, the items lower in the list will rise up and fill in this pane.

40 1 Eric Davis
41 1 Eric Davis
This pane lists up to 10 extra tasks for the user.  These tasks are used as overflow for the What I'm doing now.

h3. Workflow
48 1 Eric Davis
49 1 Eric Davis
The standard workflow for this plugin is as follows:
50 1 Eric Davis
51 1 Eric Davis
# A user will drag issues from the What's Available pane to the What I'm doing now and What's recommended to do next
52 1 Eric Davis
# Once 15 issues have been dragged (5 Now, 10 Next) the user would prioritize and sort the issues in order of importance
53 1 Eric Davis
# The user would use the rest of Redmine and work on the #1 issue
54 1 Eric Davis
# Once the #1 issue is complete (or blocked) the user would continue and work on the #2 issue
55 1 Eric Davis
56 1 Eric Davis
If the user is an Administrator, they have the permission to edit other users' lists.  This allows them to act as the system Project Manager.
