Extending listings

Can't stop the Extended Something plugins to extend... something in Redmine and ChiliProject! This time users and projects listings got extended!
Added by Andriy Lesyuk over 10 years ago

Ok, I ask my users for a company they work in (using Extended Profile plugin which uses Extended Fields)... But how do I see what they answer?.. No, really? Of course, I can check profiles. But, hey, right now I have around 150 active (in terms of Redmine) users’ profiles to check!.. Honestly – my opinion is that custom fields are useless unless you can easily list them...

The same applies not only to custom fields. I always wondered how can I list projects and their download counts. Even used SQL to do that! Even planned to write a plugin for this (see #1745)... But I found the workaround! And it became the main feature of the Extended Fields plugin version 0.1.0!

So now the Extended Fields plugin extends... listings! In partucular – users listing and projects listing which are available for administrators. The plugin adds customization to these listings by allowing to specify which columns and/or custom fields to show (like it is already done for issues listing). Besides just columns the plugin also adds special columns allowing to show calculated data (that’s how I get download counts)...

As a part of The Rename the identifier of the project has been renamed to extended-fields with this release! Most users won’t feel the change! Only those who use SVN. SVN users will need to execute the following command to fix their repositories:

$ svn switch --relocate http://svn.s-andy.com/redmine-fields http://svn.s-andy.com/extended-fields

All users should also consider subscribing to the project using the form (on the sidebar) provided by my new Subscription plugin (which suffer testing right now – that is by subscribing you also help me testing it). Why subscribing? For example, being subscribed you would get notification about this release and this news...

P.S. I thought about changing plugin name to something what reflects new features as Extended Fields name does not tell anything about listings... But what name? Extended Fields & Listings?.. Extended Columns?.. Maybe Extended Redmine? Well... Fields are related to listings and columns! So decided to leave its current name.
