Activity

In OpenProject you can display the activities in a project to gain a quick overview about the current status and changes. The activity page lists the newest developments in your project.

Activity is defined as a module that displays the actions performed in a project over a certain period of time.

The changes are listed in reverse chronological order, with the latest changes appearing on top. Apply a filter (located below the project navigation on the left), to select which attributes are included in the activity.

The activity includes changes to work packages, repository changes, new, wiki entries or forum messages.

Activate Activity in a project

To activate the Activity module in a project, select the arrow next to Project Settings in the Project menu on the left hand side.

How far back can I trace the project activities?

The retrospective for the project activities is not limited. You can therefore trace all the project activities back to the beginning of the project. You can configure in the admin settings how many days are shown on each activity page. Due to performance reasons, the days displayed should be set at a low level (e.g. 7 days).
