We have developped this feature in our company.
Perhaps this feature asks for a new role permission.

If the community is interrested in it, we will provide a patch.

I'd be very interested in that - we came up with that same idea for a solution to the main Redmine issue we are having.

We have been running with Redmine for about a month and we really like getting all the conversations out of email (where they used to be) and into Redmine where they are centralized and searchable. However, to do that we have to have email notifications on, but far too many of the messages from the system are not interesting to most users and as a result, they may miss the important ones. If we could have the sender decide when they want others to see an issue update on a update by update basis, it would greatly improve the signal to noise ratio.

If you can send the patch, we'd definitely take a look at it.

Redmine stealth is great but this should really be part of Redmine itself.

It would be way more practical that with adequate permission there is a [Submit Without Notifications] button when editing issues, along with global notification turn on/off. 2 cases of usage would be covered:

  • Batch update of number of issues in stealth mode - this is now possible with redmine stealth. Also, it would be good to have [disable notifcations for N minutes] - when my admins are in the batch mode they frequently forget to turn notifications on after they finish.
  • Acute update of one issue (setting little stuff such as correcting typos, adding issue category and other little things that may not deserve notification spam)
