Project administration which supports the eXtreme Programming methodology.

Project description

eXtreme Management Tool

This application provides project administration which supports the eXtreme Programming Methodology.

Content Types

  • Project Multiple projects can be added by projectmanagers. For each project, iterations and stories can be added by both the customers and employees.
  • Iteration The project will be planned with iterations. An iteration is a period of 1 to 3 weeks in which a number of stories will be implemented.
  • Offer Contains the stories that a customer wants in this Project. It is used as a way to bundle the wishes of the client and give a first indication of the size of a project.
  • Story The customer can define new features by describing these feature in a story.
  • Task The employees can estimate the story by defining tasks.
  • Booking While working on tasks the employees can track time and easily book those at the end of the day.


Customers can create stories and submit them for estimating. The employees will find pending stories in the review portlet and provide a rough estimate and change the state by using the ‘mark estimated’ transition.

The customers are able to prioritize the stories based on value for the organisation and the rough estimate. When the team has committed to the number of stories, they can start writing tasks and provide estimates for each task.

After all tasks have been written and estimated the iteration can be started by following the transition ‘start working’. This will set the status of all tasks to ‘todo’, so employees will see their tasks in the todo list.

Activating tasks will send notification email to the assignees. When an iteration is activated, this could result in quite some mails to be sent. To prevent this from slowing down the activation of the iteration, one could consider adding MaildropHost in the instance.

When completing all tasks in a story the story itself will be set to ‘completed’.

Time Tracker

The time tracker allows the employees to track their work in real time. You can select a few tasks to work on from the list of assigned tasks. The tracker will display an input field for each task. Instead of using the punch-in, punch-out system we choose to start working by just starting the timer. After you have finished a task you describe your work in the input field and hit the ‘track’ button

The time spent on the task will be registered with your description and the timer will reset itself so you can start on the next task.

In case you get interrupted by a phone call or a colleague asking for help, you simply provide a quick note on what you were doing in the task input. Again this will reset the timer. At the bottom of the tracker an input field for unassigned tasks is available, to track interruptions like these. If you register the time here, you can later hit the ‘Add to task’ button, which allows you to browse through all open tasks and book the time there.

At the end of the day you can expand each task do any last changes to either the description or the time. In case you didn’t finish the task yet you can click the ‘book’ button to add a booking to the task with the total time. When you did finish the task you can click ‘book and close’, this will change the state of the task to completed.

Release Plan

The Release Plan provides the customer with an “Overall Plan”. At the start of a project all stories are added to the project. Depending on the velocity of the development team and the size and number of stories the expected number of iterations can be added. The customer can than prioritize the user stories using drag and drop and assign them to iterations.

Iteration Roundup

When the iteration is finished, some stories might not be completed. Using the close iteration option from the ‘action’ dropdown allows you to select or create the next iteration and copy over all unfinished stories, including unfinished tasks.


Make a backup of your site. You can never be too careful.

We strongly advise using buildout; it is certainly not impossibly to get it to work in other ways but this is not supported. Just add Products.eXtremeManagement in the main eggs section of your buildout.cfg.

Important: you need to install egenix-mx-base from Egenix. Either use the installers provided by them or use your own system tools (apt-get install python-egenix-mxdatetime works on Debian/Ubuntu) or use easy_install egenix-mx-base. On Windows the installers seem to be the easiest way. For mac users, do: sudo easy_install-2.4 egenix-mx-base Then open python terminal: python2.4 >>import mx.DateTime

Then restart your zope instance and use the Add/Remove products page in Site Setup to install eXtremeManagement.


For reference, here are the dependencies:

  • Plone: 3.1 or 3.2 with Zope 2.10.

  • Some xm.* and kss.* packages and pygooglechart (pulled in automatically via

  • Poi with its dependencies. Get a bundle with products fit for the Plone version you are using:

    With Poi installed, eXtremeManagement allows you to add an issue tracker in a project. And you can add PoiTasks to Stories, which lets you easily link to existing issues in the tracker of your project.

  • The mx.DateTime library from Egenix; see the Installation instructions above.

Optional extra

If you have a project management website you should seriously consider installing the xm.theme package. This gets rid of part of the default Plone UI so it fits a project management site more. Try this out locally before you use it in production. Note that this may become a real dependency in newer versions of Products.eXtremeManagement

Conflicting Products

  • eXtremeManagement is known not to work with ZEPP/PlonePM, another project management product. It uses a Task content type, just like eXtremeManagement does. This causes problems. If you want to try out both, do that in separate Zope instances.
  • Same is true for PloneBooking.

2.1a1 (2010-09-24)

  • Added Plone 4 compatibility, while keeping Plone 3 compatibility. May have a few rough edges and has two failing tests on Plone 4 (including one in xm.tracker), so use with care. [maurits]
  • Avoid TraversalError in the xm.tracker when taskbrain2dict throws an AttributeError for a brain that fails getting its object. [maurits]

2.0.4 (2010-07-05)

2.0.3 (2010-05-01)

  • Poi portlet: show more of the title of possible stories for creating a PoiTask in. Fixes [maurits]
  • In the Project Links portlet, show a link to the first PoiTracker; fall back to an item with the id ‘issues’. Fixes [maurits]
  • Show the simple tasklist in more cases, like when you view the global task_overview when you only have the Employee role locally on a Project. Do show less detail then. Fixes [maurits]
  • Give Employees the ‘Copy or Move’ permission also on closed Projects. Refs [maurits]
  • Also show Iterations in the ‘for own account’ state in the finished iterations overview, and show a link to that in the iterations portlet. Fixes #178 [maurits]
  • Fixed i18n inconsistencies. [maurits]
  • Fixed hard-coded WF ID for iteration CTs. This should fix #204. [seletz]
  • Added edit link+icon on manage_simple_tasklist table to have an short link to to the edit form of the task. [jensens]
  • Title of story in offer_view is now a link to the story’s view. [jensens]
  • Started german translation. Refinement follows. [jensens]
  • Fixed issue of disappearing iterations in the planned, finished, invoiced and inprogress iteration view. Sorting on fields that have no value will remove those items from the result. Alse the code has been refactored by adding memoizes and moving portal_state to xmbase. [jladage]

2.0.2 (2009-05-05)

  • Added position:relative on #schedule-field to fix the overflow in IE7. [laurens]

  • Removed schedule-bumber tag and css: it messed up IE7/IE8. [laurens]

  • css and additional html for iteration-slider. [laurens]

  • Fix several problems with automatically closing iterations:

    • First check for duplicate story IDs in the new iteration.
    • Remove bookings from new iteration instead of the current.
    • Changed the permission for the close-iteration view to AddIteration instead of Manage Portal.

    [fred + mark]

  • Reinstated the xm.story.detailsbox provider as the canonical spot for putting the story details box. Previously it was there and in the, which meant there were subtle differences when creating a booking (provider was updated) and just viewing the page (the was used). All has been moved to the provider. [maurits]

  • Allow starting a Task when it has no assignees, so Employees can pick their Tasks. We plan to create a view to make that picking easier, or perhaps to bulk assign some tasks. [maurits]

  • Refactor the tests so we can have doctests being unit tests. [mark]

  • Removed all traces of the show_task_count option for the story list, as since the last commit it was always set to False. [maurits+mike]

  • In the project view, show the totals of the current iteration(s). In the simple story list, fix the colspan. [maurits+mike]

  • Do not give Customers (or Contributors) any permissions on bookings. [maurits+mike]

  • For a Customer that is smart enough to traverse to a Task manually, we only show the title and nothing more. [maurits+mike]

  • Protect the Add task form in the story view with the Add Task permission, so for example Customers are not shown this option. [maurits+mike]

  • Do not show Customers the total estimated hours of all tasks in a story. [maurits+mike]

  • Do not show the task details in the expanded story view for Customers. [maurits+mike]

  • Rename ‘Can track projects’ to include ‘customer’ so that it is obvious that this is the role to assign to customers who should have access to XM. Updated several translations and added the translation labels for the XM specific roles [laurens+fred]

  • Added permission xm.ViewDetails (eXtremeManagement: View Details). In the rolemap.xml we give this permission to Manager, Projectmanager and Employee. The task list in the story view is now protected with this permission. [maurits+mike]

  • Added dependency on collective.autopermission. [maurits+mike]

  • Do not give Contributors the Modify portal content permission in the booking workflow. Customers that for some reason also have the Contributor role could edit bookings. Note: needs an update of the security settings in the portal_workflow. [maurits+mike]

  • Fixed iteration closing tests by using properties. Fixed ‘TypeError: unindexable object’ in iteration closing view. [maurits]

2.0.1 (2009-03-22)

2.0 (2009-03-15)

  • Project managers can now close an iteration and automate copying over unfinished stories, including unfinished tasks. [jladage]
  • Updated Projects and Story workflows. [maurits+jladage]
  • Fixed Typo in permission to guard editing the budget hours. [jladage]
  • Fixed bug in pending stories portlet. [maurits+jladage]
  • Added extra check in poi portlet to only show when there are open issues. Fixes issue 154. [maurits]
  • Actually use the description textarea from the submitted add task form. [maurits]

2.0rc2 (2009-01-26)

  • Only display transition warning icon when there are messages. [jladage]
  • Only display project portlet is there are any links to show. [jladage]
  • Minor changes to translations. [jladage]

2.0rc1 (2009-01-25)

  • Fixed workflow messages in task view and add i18n. [jladage]
  • Added translations for the two templates in [jladage]
  • Fixed issue 100, list of projects are loaded on DOM load. [reinout + mark]
  • Show images and files from the story in the offer view. [maurits+fred]
  • Fixed another part of issue 131: by committing subtransactions more often, less ConflictErrors occur and their impact is less. This should speed things up at least a bit. [reinout + mark]
  • Moved the startStory and startIteration scripts zo they are triggered before the transition of the story/iteration. [reinout + mark]
  • Gave our custom roles (Customer, Employee, Projectmanager) some of the permissions defined by CMFEditions. Case in point: on the Zest projects site we started using versioning for Stories, and a non-Manager/Owner could no longer edit a Story… [maurits]
  • Fixed issue 131 for changing the workflow state of a task in the story view. Other workflow changed still need attention; they may be the result of ConflictErrors. [reinout + mark]
  • Fixed issue 112, when reactivating a task in a completed story, the story is set to ‘ in-progress’. [jladage]
  • Fixed issue 111, customers can now only view issue of their own trackers. [jladage]
  • Fixed issue 113, customers and employees can now add files and images to the story. [jladage]
  • Fixed issue 138, the person doing the transition will not receive an e-mail notification. [jladage]
  • Fixed issue 120, Current Iterations table has now a column ‘worked hours’ and updated translations. [jladage]
  • Fixed issue 134, releaseplan now uses id attributes that start with story-* [jladage].
  • Fixed issue 136, the iteration portlet only displays links to current, planned and finished iterations if there is something to show. [jladage]
  • Fixed issue 139, the dropdown with related tasks in the poi portlet has now a fixed width. [jladage]
  • The listing of In-Progress iterations now has links for billable and unbillable iterations. [jladage]
  • Added listing of iterations that have been invoiced this month. [jladage]
  • In the releaseplan you can now drag and drop stories to/from the unplanned stories table. [jladage]

2.0beta3 (2009-01-11)

  • Fixed bug in the ‘my projects’ listing in the project portlet. [jladage]

2.0beta2 (2009-01-09)

  • Refactored the add_task KSS - it now collapses again. [simon]
  • Added totals to the finished iterations view and (total) estimate to the planned iterations view. [reinout + mark]
  • Removed My task listing from iteration view, to allow role based caching. [jladage]
  • Commenting has been disabled. [jladage]
  • Add task KSS is now also collapseable. [simon, fred]
  • Use plone_tools where possible, getting rid of getToolByName.

2.0beta1 (2009-01-08)

  • Fixed translations
  • The my project dropdown now displays all active projects for ProjectManagers. [jladage]
  • Removed personalized My todo list from iteration view. [jladage]
  • When no start or end date is provided, simply a dash is displayed. [jladage]
  • The release plan was guarded with Manage Portal permission, this is now set to the View permission. [jladage]
  • The ‘add task’ link is now only displayed when the user has the correct permission. [simon]
  • Removed the Project Administration templates and view. [jladage]
  • Removed the old update_hours_form, we now have the time tracker. [jladage]
  • Corrected the available method for the tasks portlet, so anonymous doesn’t see it. [jladage]
  • Added site action ‘Projects’ to link to the project website, this way we are consistent with the time tracker site actions. [jladage]

2.0alpha3 (2009-01-07)

  • The Add task form at the story view is now loaded using kss. By default no assignee is selected.[jladage]
  • Updated the dutch translations.[jladage]
  • Added a link to a list of ‘Planned iterations’ to the iterations portlet. [jladage]
  • Cleaned up a number of templates that are not used anymore, project_administration, customer_view, etc. [jladage]
  • Current iteration link in the Iterations portlet now provides a correct URL. In addition if two iterations are in the state ‘in-progress’ a status message will guide you to the other iteration. [jladage]
  • Added view that lists finished (=invoiced or completed) iterations. [reinout]
  • now zaps several known old-style portlets. [reinout]
  • Replaced story estimation portlet by a new-style one. [reinout]
  • Removed obsolete portlet_my_projects portlet. [reinout]
  • Added better documentation to portlets.xml, unified names/titles of portlets in various places. [reinout]
  • Added new-style link-to-poi-issue portlet as replacement for part of the old-style poi portlet. [reinout]
  • Added new-style poi_creation portlet as replacement for part of the old-style poi portlet. [reinout]
  • Fixed possible DiscussionNotAllowed error when expanding a Story. [maurits]
  • Now refreshing story details box provider when quick-adding a Task. [maurits]
  • Changed story details box into a provider (viewlet manager without viewlets) so we can refresh that provider with KSS. [maurits]
  • Moved “eXtremeManagement: View Tracker” permission from xm.tracker to Products.eXtremeManagement as we do not actually use that permission in the xm.tracker package but only in actions.xml of Products.eXtremeManagement. This also means we do not have to have a dependency on xm.tracker (at least currently). [maurits]
  • Fixed issue #127 - “Add task” widget breaks if there aren’t Employees [maurits]
  • Renamed reorder_stories to releaseplan [jladage].
  • The time tracker is now guarded by a special permission. As a result only users with the Projectmanager or Employee assigned globally will be able to use the timetracker. [jladage]
  • The invoicing view now only shows projects that are billable. This change requires that the getBillableProject index has to be reindexed manually [jladage]
  • Instead of sending an email to new assignees of a Task whenever that Task is edited, only send an email when the Task gets transitioned to the to-do state. Also made the email sending more robust in the face of special characters, like Czech. This refs: [maurits]
  • Enable optional experimental.catalogqueryplan usage. This needed a fix in some of the tests as experimental.catalogqueryplan caches daterange results in REQUEST. Add the egg to buildout’s egg list to get a speed increase. [reinout]
  • Show the number of comments of a Story in the story details viewlet (when expanding the story in the iteration view). Fixes [maurits]
  • Employees overview: show the strict percentages and totals for the week, meaning: count only the days in this month. The totals and percentages that really count the whole week are now available as a tooltip. This is pending refactoring into two views as Managers and Employees have a different wish list here. [maurits]
  • Moved employees_overview page here from xm.theme. [maurits]
  • Fix: Only add the billable hours of a day to the week/month when some work (billable or not) has been done on that day. [maurits]
  • In the migration from ProjectFolders/CustomerFolders to normal Folders, set the immediately addable types too. Note that Customer content type is not addable by default anymore, so in the migrated CustomerFolder you can only add a Customer when you allow Customers to be added globally. [maurits]
  • Refactored KSS, CSS, JS and Python for workflow gadgets. Removed duplicated ids (#task-list-for-story) in favour of existing class (.tasklist_table), added KSS rebinding of workflow menus and stripped redundant CSS. [simon]
  • Added /inprogress view for managers that lists all in-progress iterations. [reinout]
  • Added /invoicing view for managers that lists all invoicable iterations. [reinout]
  • Removed almost all descriptions for Customer as they’re useless (“enter address” description for an “address” field). Some of the descriptions were wrong anyway. Fixes [reinout]
  • Added checks whether start/endDate are set as toLocalizedTime(None) returns today as value. So unset start/end dates looked like today. Fixes [reinout]
  • Corrected my CSS/KSS bug in the story workflow state changer, re: [simon]
  • Added more of our content types to the kupu collections and linkables. Fixes [maurits]
  • Add an empty entry to the xm.add_task_form viewlet. Now one can quickly add tasks without having to assign anyone to it. [mark]

2.0 alpha 2 (2008-09-17)

  • Fixed UnicodeDecodeError in the state change viewlet. [maurits]
  • Cloned and tweaked the CSS for our clone of the Plone authoring actionMenu. [simon]

2.0 alpha (2008-09-16)

  • Added ‘locked status’ logic so the release planning view can display it. Cleaned up release planning view logic, icluding class generation. Corrected relevant tests.
  • Added CSS and exception-hardening to our previous work on reorderable stories - on failing to move a story we redirect to the story so it can be fixed. [reinout+simon]
  • Made the eXtremeManagement PTSTranslationDomain available as zope.i18n domain. This makes portal status messages from kss translatable again. [maurits]
  • Got the actual drag/drop to work. Needs more work though. [reinout]
  • Started the view for reordering stories. [reinout+simon]
  • Made the review state of tasks in the simple task list overview be a dropdown list with workflow transitioning via KSS, just like the default Plone review state. [maurits+simon]
  • @Lazy optimizations in browser/ [reinout]
  • Show link to xm time tracker in site actions when the xm.tracker package is available. [maurits]
  • Include zcml of xm.tracker when the package is there. [maurits]
  • Created @@xm_global_state view, with currently one method has_tracker which is True when the xm.tracker package is available. [maurits]
  • Treating booking’s description as webintelligenttext. [reinout]
  • Cleaned up redundancy in task_review template (issue #75). [simon]
  • Merged fix from the time tracker branch (issue #75): Changed task_overview template and to display localised workflow state labels. [simon]
  • Merged fix from the time tracker branch: catch a divide by zero error. [reinout]
  • Merged the testing changes from the zest-timetracker branch. [maurits]
  • Added Products.Poi to the install_requires in as Poi now has eggs for both branch 1.1 and trunk. [maurits]
  • made the print view for offer look nicer. Added new dutch translation. [mirella]
  • Show attachments (Image, File, most importantly Story) in the project view, but only when xm.theme is not available, as that has a portlet and another view for this info. (Merged from branches/1.6, r69421 and r69426.)
  • Added tests for style conditions, which lead me to a bug in the logic. In the booking_month view, in case someone worked less than 40 hours in a week that total will be highligted. [jladage]
  • Fix a Plone 3.0 support issue in the javascript registry.[jladage]
  • fixed name typo in css [mirella]
  • minor css changes to, added translations and description for employees overview. Added odd color ad padding to employees overview, generated i18ndude and added the missing dutch translations and update_hours_form placed bookingsdate next to title. <th> has nowrap and left/right padding.[mirella]
  • Now loading the zcml from kss.plugin.yuidnd automatically, so that package does not need to be included in [instance]zcml of buildout.cfg anymore. [maurits]

  • removed hours/minutes from iteration view of start and enddate of an iteration.

2008-07-30 - jladage

  • Register event handler to update some viewlets on the story page when that story gets a workflow transition.

2008-06-06 - maurits + jladage

  • Added getLayout method to This exists to please the discussion form. Needed because we do not mix in the DynamicViewFTI class. Note: this is also used by e.g. Stories by using acquisition.

2008-06-05 - maurits

  • Do not load the details for all stories in the project or iteration view. Instead use KSS to show those details when wanted. eXtreme.js is no longer needed, but can’t be properly removed from the javascript registry with GenericSetup.
  • Fixed own mistake in generateUniqueId where this would fail if there were no tasks in the story yet.

2008-05-20 - maurits

  • Remove empty interfaces/ and accompanying Zope 3 bridge.
  • Lots of pep8/pyflakes cleanup.
  • Remove the unused migration functions from

2008-05-15 - maurits

  • In do not notify the quick installer that we have installed our own GS profile; meanwhile there were three references to eXtremeManagement, Products.eXtremeManagement and profile-Products.eXtremeManagement in the quick installer in a test site.
  • Removed the upgrade profile for moving to 3.0 (that was removing a few actions from content types) as it was confusing for developers and now also for the quick installer.

2008-05-14 - maurits

  • Do not send task emails when updating the task schema, also when not using the (commented out) method in
  • Fixed some bugs around bookings, mostly the detailed bookings view, including fixing some test failures.
