Description

It would be nice to have an option to send email updates, not just when news messages are posted but also when comments are added.
(Just like reply comments to any forum messages can be optionally notified by email.)

Hi there,
you can activate that in Adminstration -> Settings there you have the chance to activate a checkbox:

Select actions for which email notifications should be sent.

Or did you mean something different?

Hi Karl,

Thanks for the super quick response.
All boxes are checked, but email notifications aren't sent when comments are added to news tickets. I'm filing this because I'm not sure if it is a bug or a feature that hasn't been implemented.

I'm also not being notified of any comments made on news items. As with Yoshi, all the checkboxes are ticked in my install. It's not a dealbreaker, but it would be a nice feature to have.

Is it possible to change the actions shown in the "Email notifications setting"; remove an action or add another one ? And if possible, how (I am new with Redmine)?

Thanks,

Any update on the likelihood of this feature?

We're trying to make more use of the News feature internally, and it'd be very helpful to receive notifications when someone has commented on news ticket I've posted, or responded to a comment I've made on a news item.

This was something I thought was built-in as well...I just started using Redmine here for a new project at the college where I need to work with staff from the different divisions and one of the first things that they tried to do was comment on the news item I wrote, which was a summary of our meeting from last week. Luckily I noticed that a comment was made and was able to reply to it, but I did not receive any notice in my inbox that a comment was made.

After turning on all of the available notifications in Redmine's settings area, I am still not receiving any comment notifications and after reading this issue it does not seem like something that is currently implemented, but it sure would be useful :-).

Has there been any work done on this yet? It still appears to be a missing feature (or is it just broken)?

Is there any way to ne notified about news, without enabling notification for all changes in project?

For us the usal use case is, that someone want to select if ya wanna get notfied for changes in every separate content type. Means:
  • issues changes itself (all changes on field of ticket itself)
    • yournal changes on issues, aka comments
  • documents
  • files
  • wiki
    • wiki comments
  • board threads
  • Roadmap changes (issue added or removed from version, fields on version changed, version added)
  • changesets (news added or chnaged)
    • comments on news

Notification dekivery immidiately, daily, weekly. Configure many sets as pair of content type and delivery period, eg. issue changes immidiately, roadmap and news changes weekly.
