I think this issue is not a duplicate of #3035.
So the status should be reverted to "New".

#9 Updated by Go MAEDA 8 months ago

I have created a patch to implement this feature.

This patch introduces new option 'recipients', which specifies recipient types ('assignee' or 'watcher'), to the rake task 'redmine:send_reminders'.

Examples:

rake redmine:send_reminders
rake redmine:send_reminders recipients=assignee
Send reminders to assignees. same behavior with the current implementation.

rake redmine:send_reminders recipients=assignee,watcher
Send reminders to assignees and wathcers.

rake redmine:send_reminders recipients=watcher
Send reminders to watchers.

  • Target version changed from 3.4.0 to Candidate for next major release

The text in the reminder email is "X issue(s) that are assigned to you are due in the next N days". That doesn't work for watchers. We should adapt this message for watchers and maybe group issues by assignee.

Could we discuss about how the email should look like? That could be:

X issue(s) that you are watching are due in the next N days:

* X issues assigned to A:
  * issue nn
  * ...

* X issues assigned to B:
  * issue nn
  * ...

* X issues assigned to nobody:
  * issue nn

I think that more simpler solution is good enough. What do you think?

recipients=assignee:

X issue(s) that you are involved are due in the next N days:

[Assigned to you]
* issue nn
* ...

[Assigned to your group]
* issue nn
* ...

recipients=assignee,watcher:

X issue(s) that you are involved are due in the next N days:

[Assigned to you]
* issue nn
* ...

[Assigned to your group]
* issue nn
* ...

[Watched by you]
* issue nn
* ...
