4.5 Stars out of 5
- by Mihails, 5 months agoRated 5 out of 5This is exactly what I've been looking for a while: some way to toggle start/stop time of the task with just a click of a button. I'm not really a Redmine user, but this add-on made me install it, because this is EXACTLY what I was looking for for some time to record what types of internal tasks (like meetings, consultations, answering "just a quick questions" etc.) take what ammount of my working time. Great job! You totally deserved a contribution.
May I suggest some improvements for future releases:
1. Option to group Projects in some sort of nested hierarchy.
2. Option to choose size or resize the projects' buttons. I have 16 Projects already on the window and it takes quite a bit of space.
3. Option to enable/disable "Ask fr text..." option per-project.
4. (A really advanced one, but really neat) Make "comment" field embedded in Project's button, so that it appears already when you toggle Project 'on' and goes automatically into "Spent Time" comment when toggled 'off'.

this add-on wants access to lots of sensitive data.
Developer responseposted 2 years ago** UPDATE Dec 2019 ** -- version 1.0.10 now only requests permissions to your Redmine URL. Original response from September 2018 is below:
Yes, it's true that it asks for permission for all sites. When I rewrote the tool for Firefox WebExtensions, I wrote it to only ask for permission to read the site you listed as your Redmine URL. Unfortunately, there was some sort of bug with that feature in WebExtensions -- I discussed with Mozilla a bit -- the only way around it was to ask for permission to all sites. I assume it has been fixed by now, and on the next major update I will attempt to only ask permissions for the site you specify as Redmine.
- by Chris Paschen, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5UPDATE (Dec 2019): Having now switched exclusively to Firefox for dev work I gave this a try a few months ago and, although it works differently than the main Chrome Redmine Timer, it now definitely works. All the issues that I originally reviewed on have been resolved. Also, a bug in Firefox 72 which caused it to break again were quickly resolved (and the Bitbucket repo link is live and working).
If you are using Redmine for dev work within Firefox you definitely need this extension (esp. if you bill for your hours).
Changing rating from 1 star to 5.
[Original review 2 years ago]
I'd love to write a nice review (and even contribute) but without the ability to save my redmine URL or api code, and (worse yet) no apparent way to contact the developer (bitbucket link is dead) I guess it gets zero stars. Although it has been recently updated, looks like no reviews for several months, so not sure if anyone else is able to get it to work either). [Firefox 56.0 64-bit on Win10]
Developer responseposted 3 years agoHi Chris -- sorry you're having trouble getting it to save settings. Someone else reported the same problem the other day, and I've finally been able to reproduce the problem.
BTW - the Bitbucket repo changed names, and I updated it everywhere in the description and random other fields, but I forgot to change the homepage URL in the manifest -- my fault there.
The bug report is here: https://bitbucket.org/jprc8/redmine-timer-for-browsers/issues/8/102-wont-save-settings
I hope I'll have time to fix the problem this weekend and release new code.
- by wulf, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5This makes non-tecs use the timetracking in redmine - at last!
some visual enhancements would lead to 5 stars
Developer responseposted 4 years agoOh man... my office is never going to let me live down this review. I intentionally build all internal projects with no design thought whatsoever in an attempt to balance out the tech universe -- too many projects care only about design at the expense of functionality. My coworkers say that's not how things work.
I truly appreciate the feedback, and since someone I don't know noticed the lack of design, I'll actually make an attempt to clean it up in the next version.
- by Firefox user 12099675, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Time tracking can be a pain but this app has relieved a lot of the annoyance that comes with tracking time! It is easy to use and has a simple design that allows you to switch between multiple projects quickly.
- by Katherine, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I never thought I would enjoy recording my time on projects, but I love this app. It's easy to use, easy to remember to use and is almost like a game. The big buttons allow for easily clicking start and stop and moving efficiently between projects. I have tried a number of other time tracking solutions in the past and this is the first on that works for me!
- by Firefox user 12099274, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This plugin is very helpful. I hated having to guess at how long I was working on a project and then manually type it in. This makes it so much easier since it automatically records it for you! I also tend to forget to stop timing a project so the popup reminders are another added bonus feature! Anyone who uses Redmine needs this.
