mail notification or watcher in closed project

Added by youngseok yi almost 9 years ago

Happy new year for all of you who loves redmine~

I think current email notification with watcher is best-fit for an open project.

  • watcher is active
  • watcher is happy to be notified for an every little change of issue they concern.

But it's not best-fit for a closed project (e.g. use in company)

  • watcher in closed has different attitude as open - not active, just passive
  • watcher don't like to receive e-mail for every trivial or frequent change of issue.
  • most of watcher don't want to concern other's issue! only interested in their own issue. sometimes they are forced to be notified by boss.
  • watcher want to be notified only for an important case. (issue closed or important note addition)

So I hope to disscuss about another option or workflow for closed project.

  • daily or weekly e-mail notification which contains activity during daily or weekly.
  • no e-mail notification util auther or watcher is willing to send
    • when 'send e-mail' button on the issue page, pressed
    • when issue description or note updated and contains 'send email' string.

What do you think best notification for a closed project?

Great idea

I'am in a similar environnement and it would be a nice feature in a non public project.

Another point:

Most of users are'nt interessed by issues in which there are'nt involved but i did'nt find any feature allowing to see only assigned issues. Is there such feature ?

I don't know how heavy work it might be.

Best regards,

Jean-Pierre.

Thanks for your opinion.

AFAIK assigned issue could be seen from My page > Issues assigned to me > View all issues or you could use filters from issues page (user can save custom filter if he has permission)
