Easy Redmine is an online tool for project management and bug-tracking. It contains a calendar and Gantt charts that show the projects and their deadlines in a graphic way. Easy Redmine integration allows measuring the time consumption of each task. Moreover, it allows to invoice your customers accurately as TimeCamp imports all of your projects, tasks, and even project budget from Easy Redmine.
The integration will be enabled to the entire account, so all users will be able to track time on imported tasks. The integration will be connected to the Easy Redmine account of the person who enabled the integration.
Projects will be imported as tasks under the Redmine project. Lists with their tasks will be imported as subtasks under the tasks (projects) in TimeCamp.
We don’t provide an option to select items that should or should not be imported from Easy Redmine to TimeCamp. After the integration is enabled all projects, lists, and tasks the owner of integration has access to, will be imported to the Projects module in TimeCamp.
It is not possible to edit the structure of imported items in TimeCamp.
As an integration creator, you automatically gain access to all imported items. Other users are assigned automatically based on their email addresses, which need to match in both TimeCamp and Easy Redmine. You can always assign tasks manually as well. If users are assigned to the main project Easy Redmine they will be able to track time to all tasks under the Easy Redmine project structure. If users are assigned only to certain tasks, they will be able to track time only to these tasks and subtasks under the tasks’ structure.
If you enable the exporting option in integration settings, tracked time will be automatically exported to your Easy Redmine account. Just open a task and navigate to the Spent Time tab.
Please keep in mind that the email addresses and account names of your employees should match both in TimeCamp and Easy redmine. Otherwise, tracked time won't be exported.
Tasks and projects marked as completed or deleted in Easy Redmine will be automatically moved to the list of Archived tasks in TimeCamp. If you create a new item in Easy Redmine it will be automatically imported to TimeCamp within 1 hour. To immediately synchronize the integration and update newly added items use the “Force synchronization” option on TimeCamp web Timesheet. Synch will be executed within a few seconds.
If the user who enabled the integration is not a part of your account anymore, we recommend reenabling the integration.
Only the Administrator of the account can enable the integration.
