Description

Presently the 'default' tracker value is determined by its UTF-8 encoding so that the tracker with lowest alphabetic value description displays and is selected automatically if the user does not alter it. I suggest that the default tracker be settable by project and that a nil default be available which would mean that the user MUST select one tracker value from the available list but that none will be preselected for them.

The target version field has to be set when it will actually part of the target release.

I second this request. There's a great tendency to forget to select an appropriate tracker when a default is provided. Our development group has had to move dozens of issues between trackers over time as a result of this.

Also, since I can't add related issues, I'll just point out the related patch in #1667

I totaly agree : it's really easy in Redmine to set a wrong tracker with the default choice, and such feature would be great for data's consistency.

#4 Updated by Grégoire COUTANT about 7 years ago

I agree too and the patch seems to "resolve" this feature. Could you it put in the next release ?

Hi.

This patch isn't executable in Redmine version 1.2.2.

Is there a handy man to create this feature as a Redmine plugin? I'm new to Ruby :-(

Thank you.

Can you implement this patch to Redmine? It would be great!

Any updates in this area? Default tracker could really help...

This ticket should be closed as a duplicate of #1667 which already includes a patch for this.
Hopefully #1667 can make it in the next release...
