Quick Syntax Reference


In this chapter, we reviewed the functionality that you will use quite often while working with Redmine. The knowledge that you have gained here should help you configure and maintain your projects with ease.

Nevertheless, the topics that we reviewed were not really complicated and probably could be learned without reading a book. So, my main goal was not to show you the basics of managing projects in Redmine, but to show things that you should consider while doing this. I also tried to share my experience about best practices for configuring and maintaining Redmine projects. I hope I have succeeded in this.

With each chapter, we learn more and more and you probably wonder, "What else can be in the next chapters?" But do we know enough? For example, we know that we can use the Wiki syntax almost everywhere in Redmine, but have we discussed this syntax? That's what we are going to do in the next chapter.
