#828 closed enhancement (wontfix)

allow person days instead of hours

it would be great if the plugin would allow entering person days also, maybe configurable, a possibility could be:

  • parameter: time unit: days|hours
  • parameter: time unit label: Days
  • maybe? parameter: hours/time unit

If you want this to be the case you can edit the trac.ini file to change the labels. This will not change the report readouts, but entering them and looking at the ticket they would be displayed in person days.

For example:

estimatedhours.label = Estimated Number of Hours

could be changed to

estimatedhours.label = Estimated Number of Person Days.

The reports are just standard sql as well, so if you wanted to change them as well, you could, but they would be overwritten if the reports are updated (as they have been in the last couple of updates (0.1.9 - 0.2.5 changed the reports in almost every version).

I am a little reticent to add a quite a bit of code just to change the label in a couple of places. If you wanted to prepare a patch that allowed this sort of relabeling of the boxes and report columns (probably from the webui or the trac.ini), I would be more than happy to incorporate it. I do not think that I will be able to develop this however.

Thanks for the input, I hope this meets your needs Russ

To be fair, this has been open 2 years. I am probably never going to get around to this. Also, there is now js to convert the decimal hours to hours and minutes. All this comes down to me never actually doing this.

I am going to close this to reduce clutter
