Twproject preferences

Twproject has been built to works in different environments, countries, ways to work. In this section you can configure several of these aspects.

User defaults

Here are “defaults of default” or defaults when a user does not have her/his own.

Project defaults

Twproject sometime uses default values:

screen1075

Twproject allow you to create and rename roles. Using Project manager, Worker and Customer role names you can tell Twproject what role it should use.
The same for the Scrum related roles.

Total working hour per day (that is used to convert days estimation in hours estimation) and milestone alert delta (how many days before the milestone date the “milestone approaching” event is raised).

You can set progress to 100% automatically when closing a task.

By default codes used for projects, tasks, issues, resources are not unique. You can force the uniqueness of codes.

Twproject can generate unique codes from task types: if you select a task type, didn’t type a code, and enabled the “generate codes” option above.

Since version 4.7 there is also “disable workflow” that turns off the workflow module, simplifying the user interface:

Project mailboxes

This feature considerably expands the management possibilities for anyone handling helpdesk like situations. You can now have multiple “background jobs” running in Twproject that check several e-mail accounts (say, one per main project) and create issues for incoming e-mails.

screen1076

Activate here the service by associating an email to each task, and then adding a configuration line here. You cannot use the same email address for multiple tasks. The priority of the issue created will be taken from the e-mail.

Some hints:

“port number”, leave -1 for default values: e.g.: pop3=110, pop3s=995, imap=143

“public” means that everyone can send issue (via e-mail) to the task, regardless the sender is a Twproject user.

Otherwise only users with issue write-permission on that task will be able to add issues.

“active” means that issues will be imported (alias: mail will be downloaded) only while the task is open, and we are in the time scope of the task.

Holidays

screen1077

Using this page you can customize company’s holidays; check a cell if that day is holiday. Pink ones are not working day by configuration (Saturdays and Sundays).

screen1078

First click on a day (yellow) means a variable holiday; changes year-by-year.
Second click on a day (red) means a fixed holiday; same day year-by-year.
