#9534 closed defect (duplicate)

Overriding explicit start dates

Reported by: Robert Inder Owned by: Chris Nelson
Priority: high Component: TracJsGanttPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


The trac-hacks description page says...

When estimate and finish are both configured (and start is not configured or not on the ticket), the plugin attempts to determine the start of the task from finish and estimate as start = finish - estimate with consideration for weekends and hours per day.

But actually, the start date is ignored.

My trac.ini contains...

# To work with Timing and Estimation for percent complete
fields.estimate = estimatedhours
fields.worked = totalhours
# Each unit in estimate is 1/8 of a day
days_per_estimate = 0.125
# To work with Master Tickets for dependencies
fields.pred = blockedby
fields.succ = blocking
# To work with Subtickets for parent/child relationships
fields.parent = parents
# To work with ChildTickets plugin
# parent_format = #%s
# Custom fields for start and due dates
fields.start = userstart
fields.finish = userfinish
date_format = %Y-%m-%d
# date_format = %d/%m/%Y
milestone_type = milestone


userstart = text
userstart.label = Start Date
userstart.order = 4
userstart.value = = true
userstart.date_empty = true
userfinish = text
userfinish.label = Finish Date
userfinish.order = 4
userfinish.value = = true
userfinish.date_empty = true

But the gantt charts always calculate their own start dates and ignore the ones in userstart.

I think this is a duplicate ticket of #9279

I think you are right.

Sorry, I was in a rush. I really wanted to report #9535, which is an annoyance on its own but a real killer in the presence of this/#9279.

I think my ticket is clearer, mind...
