Preview of Tickets

Added by Martina Schlager at 2013-03-04 11:51 am

Hello, I advised several clients to use Redmine/Chili for IT project management and we are quite happy with the tool.

One major usability issue is, that you have to labor through all the tickets step by step. This is most bothersome if you want to understand your job load quickly, or if you want to discuss issues with your teammates and managers...

We would love to get a "preview" of the ticket-text & commments on mouse over at all views the tickets are displayed (my page, projects, gantt etc.).

Cheers Martina

Hi Martina,

the hover/preview feature is a good idea - I dislike working through the issue tables - but MUST cover all issues each day on our team meetings (in those times it's not fun to be a team leader).

So I love the Gantt view - because when we discuss the tasks (issues) on the beamer with the whole team this view is the best - and already provides this hover feature.

Due to the fact that I'm no Ruby developer (yet) I cannot examine how much work it is to integrate the hover/tooltip preview for the issue tables etc., too.

You can add a ticket for that - I would support it, as far as I can... (testing facilites, maybe motivating someone to try implementing that etc.).
