Abstract

This paper reports on the implementation of a cooperative personal agenda integrated into a collaborative team environment. Concerning developers, traditional project management tools are mainly focused on tasks exclusively related to the project, failing to provide users with the capability of managing tasks not necessarily associated with the work at hand. Scheduling tasks from divergent domains towards a more efficient user planning becomes unfeasible. To overcome this inaptness, we have extended the Redmine platform with an agenda-like behaviour bearing in mind each user’s individual constraints.
