Summary0010245: Feature to add Estimated hours in regular column fields.
Description

If there is a feature to add Estimated time as a regular column field it would be nice. As we have due_date. also there is a field name ETA, in which it describes the duration in days. However if Estimated time is there it would be nice, say new column as 'Est.' in hours.

TagsNo tags attached.

Since you're using 1.2.x, I have created a plugin that replaces and supersedes the built-in time tracking feature, and includes an "Estimated Time" field like you mentioned, and also allows users to specify how much time they're spending.

Check out http://git.mantisforge.org/w/timecard.git

I am facing this issue,
APPLICATION WARNING #2400: Event "EVENT_BUGNOTE_ADD" has not yet been declared.

Should i have to declare anything or should i have to configure my 'config_defaults_inc.php'.

What i did is, I just placed the 'timecard' plugin to 'mantis1.2.0a3/plugins/timecard'

that's it.

Also when i attempt to enter my time spent, it throws an database error;

My userid is not the exact one, but it shows some encrypted text

Database query failed. Error received from database was 0001265: Data truncated for column 'user_id' at row 1 for the query: INSERT INTO mantis_plugin_Timecard_update_table (

The warning is because you need to run a newer development version of 1.2.x than a3. You can find nightly builds at http://www.mantisbt.org/builds/

As for the second problem, the only thing I can think is that if you've modified your version of MantisBT, then it could be behaving in a manner not expected by the plugin.

I am using mantis1.2.0a3 which is being downloaded on February 25 th, as you say, I should download the latest development version of mantis1.2.0a3...

Is there any possibilities to use with the existing mantis1.2.0a3 version

The plugin relies on changes in events that are only present in the latest development versions. You can keep using it with the old version, but it may not work properly.

please help me to install and use this Timecard plugin. I'm using Mantis 1.2.3, recently upgraded from 1.1.8

In 1.1.8 I have had PluginManager, which is now displayed just as a non-working URL on a menu. and I have read that 1.2.x has new way of working with plugins..

What I did is I that - I simply extracted timecard from tarball into /plugins/Timecard/ folder

By the way when I try to use
/mantisbt/plugin.php?page=Timecard/config_update

I receive the following: APPLICATION ERROR 0002500 (Plugin not registered in Mantis)

How to do it ?

Well, having carefully debugging things from core.php to core\plugin_api.php I discovered that there's a "Manage plugins" page, which is accessible only under Mantis admins.

I have forgot about the existence of this creature ever :)

Now Timecard seems to be installed. I even managed to configure it to use Timecards (whatever it is) and enabled Time Estimation. Now I understand how Time Spent feature works for developer. GREAT

But how to:
a) integrate it with a Roadmap (so that it would calculate percentage not by tasks, but by hours ?
b) where to see quickly, how much hours currently comprise the tasks for a given version (total\spent\left) ?

I'll be waiting for an answer..

my posts begin to reminder a crazy dialogue with my own :)

Now I found also the reporting feature of this - it's a Summary\View Timecard

well, anyway my two previous questions, are still actual, and a new two:

c) how to exclude from the "View Timecard" obsolete questions without Time Estimations ?
d) what is essentially a "timecard" ? Why should one have TimecardA, TimecardB, etc ?

Thanks in advance a lot !

Is there anything more happening with this issue? Great plugin, love the way this plugin works, really simple but effective. The Summary->Timecard summary screen is a little primitive and desperately needs at least a csv/excel export

What I'm really looking for is a means to get a timesheet per user per week out of the summary somehow.
