Hello,

Can somebody tell me what is the meaning of the feature:

"Notify project members when a message is posted if they want to receive notifications"

in the changelog of Version 7.0 and how i can activate this feature?

I would be very happy to recieve an answer.

I am desperately looking for a solution to notify several members in one project about one new issue.

Thanks alot, Ina

I think this feature is to be enabled by every member themselves.
Just go to My account page, and select 'for any event on all my projects' under email notifications.

Hello,

But that means you would get all the notifications for the project you are assigned into. Even many which dont even regard you.
I would find it more flexible, if as a project manager i can assign an issue to several people myself.

Is that not there then or?

Thanks.

I submitted as a requested feature about 8 months ago - it still didn't make it into the redmine yet.

Also it would be very beneficial if when I create an issue I could put it "Caller" info. Like let's say i got a phone call or email rather then someone submitted it to redmine.

Nick - What's wrong with Custom Fields for this?

Hi, James.

Well the idea is to be able to:

1) Email user on ticket updates
2) Tie that into either user Db or AD
3) Let's you aggregate data on your troublemakers :-) See who is having a lot of problems - maybe they need training. Or maybe they are a very diligent user and need to be transferred into QA department :-)

We ended up writing our own ticketing system in PHP at my previous company because of the lack of better user support/integration - thou I liked Redmine very much.

A lot of times - the people who will submit trouble ticekts are not your developers - but rather users in your company or clients - who will call you or email you.

P.S.:

I would release the system I wrote under GPL - but the company refused, thou they have no intention on further developing it or selling it to anyone. Very shortsighted in my opinion.
