I am using the MyCollab, and my team has trouble to manage our tasks properly. We are the software agency, and we manage multiple projects with our customers. We have many status of tasks such as under preview, developing, testing etc not only Open, In Progress and Closed. Could you let us can customize task status by ourselves and not depend on the hard-code list?

mail not sending while adding a new user to mycollab

SVN repository integration with MyCollab is very desirable. It would enable code commit reviews insite MyCollab instead.

Where does MyCollab stores the styles.css. I want to change the look and feel of the application.

I am very new here but feel stupid. Just need to add the task and can't see the Dashboard link. How is this possible?

I followed the Installation instruction to "edit and change variable MYCOLLAB_PORT in script mycollab.bat (on Windows)... and restart server", which I did, setting port number to 8082 but MyCollab still fails to start with the following message and errors:

It seems this is the first time you run MyCollab. For complete installation, you
must open the browser and type address http://localhost:8080 and complete the s
teps to install MyCollab.

I already have Plone installed on the same machine, with Python using port 8080 and I can't stop/uninstall or change port for that.

Is it a must that for the first-time run, MyCollab has to use port 8080?

Please advise how to proceed.

I use MyCollab from few days, it works, is simple and has a good UI.

I've some request to the dev group.
1) Don't you think will be better to have a drill down system to navigate into the tasks ?
2) Could be better to assign a group of tast to a phase with a drag and drop system or with the use of a check box.These functionalities could be integrated in all the user interface.

It seems the Dropbox connectivity is failed. I tried two times to link MyCollab with my Dropbox but it fails. I am using the latest Chrome version.

Thank you

I'd like to know is it possible to configure timeout setting.

If it's possible, where can I modify it?

I've checked /conf/* and mycollab.ini file, but I can not find related settings.

I think it's set 30 minutes now. I'd like to change it more longer.

I'll wait your answer,

Thank you!

You can set the session timeout in the file web.xml

<!-- Session Configuration -->

The MyCollab uses the web.xml, so if you set the value there so it will be affected to the MyCollab instance
