Description

It would be a great benefit if the recursive watcher option could be added.

If a user clicks on the watcher very often they wan't to get a notification of the complete tree of:
  • wiki pages
  • issues

Now every wiki page or issue has to be manually added.

Perhaps another button for toggling all watcher recursive would be great.
But much better would be a dynamical resolution upwards in the wiki and issue tree.
In this case even if an issue or wiki page will be added after the watcher has been clicked the notification will be send out.

History

#1 Updated by Holger Just 7 months ago

A user can configure on their My Account page to receive notifications for all events in a project. This includes any changes on issues, wiki pages, ... on this project. Projects which are not selected in the list will be handled as Things I watch or are involved in.

In addition to that, users can already watch a whole project wiki. If you navigate to one of the index pages (i.e. Index by title or Index by date), the watch button there toggles watching of the whole project wiki. This implicitly includes any pages of the wiki, even if they are created later.

Yes, I'm aware of this feature.
But this tree is also not recusive, if a new project is created the user has to change the settings in the account.

But my request is not about projects.
It's more about if a user don't want to get notifications about everything in a project, only to monitor selected parent tickets with all the child tickets.

In addition to that, users can already watch a whole project wiki. If you navigate to one of the index pages (i.e. Index by title or Index by date), the watch button there toggles watching of the whole project wiki. This implicitly includes any pages of the wiki, even if they are created later.

Great, this I didn't knew.
Very helpful.

But again if a user want notifications about a part of the wiki and not the complete wiki, the user has to select each page.
And if a new page in the wiki page tree has been added the user has to add the watcher manually afterwards.
