Checklists - a new opportunity of Redmine plugin «Luxury buttons»

The ability to use checklists has been implemented in Redmine plugin «Luxury Buttons».

Checklist – is a list of the necessary checks for any work.
There are cases when issue is divided into several points, each of them must be separately checked. When you want to check what points in the issue are completed and tested, use checklists.

Checklist can be used as a reminder to keep track of important checks that should be carried out in order to control the issue. In addition, by using checklists you have an opportunity to assess the readiness of the issue and control when and who checked separate point (check position) of the issue.

Checklist blocks button on which it is set, as long as the flags are not set at all check positions.

There are several types of checklists in Redmine plugin «Luxury Buttons»:

1) Local checklists.

2) Global checklists.

Local checklists are used for putting check positions in a certain Redmine issue when you click on a specified button.

For example, in issue «Develop a database» Executor should made several actions and did not hand over the issue «To check» without completion of all steps, required by the issue. You can set checklist with check positions «Create table xxx, yyy and zzz», «Create relations and indexes», «Fill in with test data» and Executor won`t be able to click button «To check», which transfers issue to another status for check by another person, until flags are not set at all check positions.

Global checklists are used for putting check positions on a particular button.

For example, when you want Tester, who checks the issue, won`t be able to click button «Checked» until flags are not set at check positions «Check functionality on all browsers», «Documentation updated», etc.

To create checklists go to the «Luxury Buttons» plugin menu: «Administration» –> «Issue Buttons» –> «Checklists».
