Email notification not to all the watchers

Added by Alessio Mercuri 8 months ago

Hello I'm Alessio from Italy.

It's the first time that I visit this forum and I need a little help form you all,.

During our activity we use issue with a lot of watchers because all these watchers are people that in some way could be involved in the issue.
What I would like to customize is the email notification when I open a new note in the issue.
If you see my attached file I would like to write a note that every watcher could read if the watchers enter into the issue but with the email notification only, for example, to the the watchers 1 and watchers 3 (putting some symbol like the @ or some other trick).

Please let me know if is possible, it's very very important for me!!!

Thanks in advance to everyone.

Hi Alessio,

Welcome to the Redmine forum and community!

In this situation, I'd suggest adding a plugin to your Redmine that allows to simpy mention users. In this way, you will limit the amount of email notifications generated and could update only the people that are directly interested in receiving the update. In the plugins directory, I found four great plugins that has the option to @mention user like in social media or other project management tools.

  • Redmine mentions - you can tag users, and they receive email notification
  • Zenedit you mention users and sends them email notifications, and adds features for comfortable working with text,
  • WikiNG, - also allows to mention /notify users and extends Wiki with user-defined macros,
  • Redmine messenger, their developer also says you can mention users, and connect chat, Slack or MatterMost

Hope it helps!

Greetings from Poland
Greg

FYI I created a plugin which allows you to add a slack or an email link after every watcher - so you can just click it and it pops up slack or skype or email etc https://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_im_link
