    258258== Trac Plugins ==

     260=== Gantt Charts ===
     261
    260262Trac has several Gantt chart plugins:
    261263
     
    272274Pale Purple's [http://virtual-planner.palepurple.co.uk/ Virtual Planner] is an alternative visualization tool.
    273275
     276=== Dependencies ===
     277
    274278MasterTicketsPlugin supports FS dependency (but calls it ''blocks'' and ''blocked by'').
    275279
     
    280284The [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/TracDependencyPlugin Trac Dependency plugin] was created in August 2009 and shows promise as a more complete and flexible solution than upgrading !MasterTickets.
    281285
     286=== Time and Scheduling ===
     287
    282288TimingAndEstimationPlugin and TracHoursPlugin add estimated and actual hours fields to tickets.  There is some disagreement about whether the estimate is the remaining time (so total estimated time is actual + estimate) or total time (so remaining time is estimate - actual).  A Gantt chart typically wants estimate and percent complete.  It is possible to extract this from either recording convention and we should likely allow either convention via a configurable interface.
    283 
    284 TeamCalendarPlugin keeps track of user availability.
    285 
    286 The TicketImportPlugin can import tasks exported from Microsoft Project as a CSV file.  There is a [ticket:7812 patch] to import dependencies so Microsoft Project can feed !MasterTickets.
    287289
    288290May I draw your attention to SchedulingToolsPlugin? I was not aware of this page, but implemented some of its ideas in some kind of prototype.
    289291It currently has a scheduler, resource availability and Gantt chart in a simple fashion.
    290292I would like to enhance it, maybe we can join efforts? -- viola

     294TeamCalendarPlugin keeps track of user availability.

     296=== Data Exchange ===
     297
     298The TicketImportPlugin can import tasks exported from Microsoft Project as a CSV file.  There is a [ticket:7812 patch] to import dependencies so Microsoft Project can feed !MasterTickets.

    292300A fact of life is that Microsoft products like Exchange and Outlook are present in many environments.  It would be nice if we could get availability information from Exchange to feed a project calendar.  Just reading from the group calendar would probably be enough.  That way users would only have to put in their vacations, etc. in one place.
