Our organization uses Redmine to track employees' work hours and make monthly reports. We have different projects with tasks there that are being created by a project manager. It's pretty simple to track your time and manage tasks, but Redmine is not very user-friendly and may cause different misunderstandings during work.

  • Project management tools
  • Work hours control
  • Reporting tools
  • Free and open-source
  • Not very user-friendly
  • Contains bugs
  • Not easy to use
Redmine is free, so is perfectly suited for small developing companies to manage projects and employees' work hours. It's online and easy to start, and also can be used with every device. But it is a little laggy and complex, so if the company can afford something better, it might be a better fit.

We have a project manager that is responsible for creating the projects and delegating appropriate access.

  • Features for project management
  • Control of time spent
  • Control of activities and tasks
  • Delegation of activities and tasks
  • User management
  • Easy maintenance
  • Integration with third-party tools
  • Free and open-source
  • Personalized reports
  • Better UI and UX
  • Better documents management
Redmine is well suited if you are looking for a low-cost solution that is still robust and reliable. It is able to manage multiple projects and delegate appropriate access to members. It is also easy to use. Redmine can be less appropriate if you are looking for a system with a pretty interface and a good user experience. Although there are some themes available on the internet that can help you achieve that, Redmine does not have good usability.

In an organization managing multiple projects and having to monitor resource allocation, Redmine works very well. It's very similar to MS Project, but with an easier to use (I think) interface.

It also has the option of documenting since it has a built-in wiki, which makes it possible to have everything documented to perfection. Besides being developed in Ruby, ​​it allows you to download the source code and customize your Redmine for your company.
  • Integration with several third-party tools
  • It has internal Wiki to document step by step what you want
  • Customizable from the source code
  • Connection via SSH
  • The interface is not very eye-catching, graphical view and user experience could use improvement
  • It takes training for like a month, since it has many tools and is difficult at first sight
  • Very little documentation on the internet
When you want to mount a continuous integration system Redmine is the perfect tool, since you can track quality perfectly. The interesting thing is that if it is well configured it is able to make quality when announcing a bug. It gives us the power to connect to IDE and display the code that has this bug and develop the solution and automatically save our code and make our commit in the IDE itself. We're able through other tools to upload our code and deploy automatically to test in a quality environment and then Redmine is responsible for sending a notification to both parts to indicate that the solution is already in pre-production and quality environment. Once this solution is approved by quality from Redmine, it triggers a trigger that makes the production pass automatically. The developer is something that simply is priceless, so this is very functional in large teams and very large applications where the level of development team is very large. It works perfectly to channel communication between developers and functional quality. Now if, on the other hand, you have a small project or a very small team of work this tool is not functional, since it really is wasting functionalities to have a complex tool for a development project that does not really require it.

We've been using Redmine for at least 6 years as main project management solution in our company. As a free solution, it's a good task and time management system which allows you to be on the same page across the whole organization. Gantt charts and calendar are very useful. Notifications help you focus on the right things.
  • Easy to deploy
  • It's free
  • It's open-source
  • Highly customizable - it has plenty of plugins which can be integrated into the system
  • Integrated WIKI is very helpful
  • The UI is a little outdated
  • Sprint wise planning cant be done easily
My opinion right now is that it's pretty out-dated solution. You can find a better solution which supports agile frameworks. But if you want it for free - yes, it's ok.

Redmine Review: "A low-cost, low-barrier project management tool"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
I have used Redmine in a number of organizations as well as with a number of open-source projects. Redmine is a top-tier project management tool allowing users to track issues and plan releases. I've used Redmine within developer organizations, support organizations, and as a general purpose project management tool. Redmine is a free, open-source tool that can be rapidly deployed and requires little day-to-day support to keep it running.
  • Issue Tracker - Redmine allows in-depth issue tracking complete with workflows and customization.
  • Release Tracker - Redmine allows releases to be tracked by milestones, collecting relevant issues in each milestone.
  • Agile Management - With a few free or low-cost add-ons, Redmine becomes a great tool for Agile project management
  • Redmine's interface design needs a bit of upgrading. It's nowhere near a modern, polished interface. Unfortunately, this severely limits user acceptance and willingness to use the application.
  • Workflow management is primitive, at best. When compared to the workflow management support that a tool such as JIRA has, Redmine's workflow management is very out of date.
Setting aside the dated UI, Redmine is an excellent free, open-source tool for project management. It integrates with several code management tools and is easy to understand and use. It was built by developers, for developers, and thus development projects is where it really shines. That said, using it for general project management and overall release management isn't hard to accomplish.

Review: "Redmine: a Project Management System that's easy to acquire, but expensive to set up (but well worth it)"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Redmine is a great product to have in an organization: It's extremely flexible, costs much less to maintain than Remedy, and is a far faster experience than other products on the market (i.e. Remedy, ServiceNow)

The primary issues that Redmine addresses are: flexible platform, API, open source and highly configurable, stability
  • FAST! - Redmine is responsive, and works much faster than its alternatives
  • A very complete Project Management / Team Collaboration system
  • utilizes SQLLite3 for its backend, making it rock-solid
  • Not doing anything new in the PM space: while it is a complete system, it lacks any new contributions to PM
  • Memory hog--will often consume more memory than should really be needed
  • Lacks a real, meaningful KPI dashboard
Redmine is a great tool to tie teams together in small departments (note: different than small projects). It is an open source project, and it WILL require some learning curve to get it set up properly, and being able to configure it will be another, separate project altogether. But, coming from a Remedy environment, where you have an entire company within a company (nearly) to support and develop a Vendor-based product, I find Redmine to be an exciting alternative.
