Redmine boards/wiki/issues watchers management and sticky groups plugin

Priority for sticky messages

Plugin adds ability to select priority level for sticky messages. Messages sorted by level first and modification time second
Please do plugins migrations before use!

Boards and topics watchers management

Plugin allows to add/remove watchers to the project' forums and their individual topics. Also it allows to assign watchers while creating a message.

Watchers management screen allows to add group members to watchers as well as lookup and quickly select watchers by typing part of their names

Plugin adds following extra links/forms

  • Extra button Watchers in Settings->Forums tab for each board right before Edit and Delete
  • Extra column Watchers in list of forums
  • Extra column Watchers in list of topics for each forum
  • Watchers management screen for new message form

Number of watchers is displayed in parenthesis after the watchers' icon.

To enable this feature you should have following permissions enabled for role:

Watchers management for new issue dialog

Plugin replaces original list of watchers in new issue creation dialog with a new and more usable. New watchers selection box allows to add group members to watchers as well as lookup and quickly select watchers by typing part of their names.

Please note that starting from version 1.4.0 ability to add non-members as watchers to issue not supported.

Issues context menu for quick watchers management

Plugin incorporates features from my other plugin - context_menu_watchers

Plugin adds 'Watchers' submenu to issues' context menu allowing to perform various watchers' related operations on selected issues:

  • Watch - add current user as watcher to selected issues
  • Unwatch - remove current user from watchers of selected issues
  • Add watchers - select users and add them as watchers to selected issues
    Restrictions: Selected issues should belong to the same project and logged user should have 'Add watchers' permission
  • Delete watchers - select users and remove them from the list of watchers for the selected issues
    Restrictions: Selected issues should belong to the same project and logged user should have 'Delete watchers' permission

I like this plugin - it gives admin the ability to maintain who is watching forums without the users actually having to WATCH that forum themselves. Needs a fix to make it work though - see the github source issues i'll post it there.
