Multiple Projects/Tracker management

Sebastian Silva
Dear RoundUp Community,

We've been using Roundup since several years projects, enjoying it's
simplicity and quality.

Creating new tracker per project is turning out to be the only pain
point in using it.

I wish there was a UI for this, in general better support for multiple
projects.

Can you recommend a path forward or maybe an alternative solution?

Thanks in advance.
Sebastian

Sebastian,

I made a modification to one of our trackers 6 years ago because people wanted projects. A project in this context is a collection of one or more issues. A new project object was created with the normal search/index/item HTML files, like what exists for the 'issue' object. This allows one to search, list projects and manage a project. The issues in a project can be managed from the project 'item' page by changing the status, changing who is it assigned to, or jumping to the issue. The status or assignment can be multiple issues at the same time. Assignment to a project is done in the issueitem page by selecting the project from a menu, similar to the nosy dialog.

People use the 'step' project attribute by assigning it to 'Null', which moves that issue to the bottom of the project 'item' page. People use this to show the active issues in a project at the top. The 'step' attribute was originally intended for a different purpose, which nobody uses. The project status is recalculated when changes are made to the status values of the project's issues, and one can search on the project status.

Currently we have 140 projects where 37 have a status 'not resolved'.

Maybe this is the kind of thing you are looking for. I work for the state of Washington so my code is not copyrighted.

Are you sure that creating a new tracker per project is really required?

Is really everything different from project to project?  
What I mean is: Do you have totally different users in each project?

If not then it might advisable to use the single same tracker instance
for all of your projects at once.

One way to do this is to create a new "project" class and use
this to keep information apart.  

Or even simpler: you could use issue instances for each of your
projects and add a new property to the issue class, which you
can use to distinguish between "project" issues and "normal"
issues being subtasks of some project.  May be you can make
use of the "superseder" property to link all issues belonging
to a project to those super issues representing your projects.

May be you can elaborate in more detail, how and why you are using
different tracker instances for your projects currently?
Why can projects not share certain information common to all projects
within the same Roundup tracker instance?

Regards, Peter.
