Sending reminder emails

Redmine offers a rake task that sends reminder emails about assigned and active issues that are past due or due in the next specified number of days.

Available options:

  • days: number of days to remind about (defaults to 7)
  • tracker: id of tracker (defaults to all trackers)
  • project: id or identifier of project (defaults to all projects)
  • users: comma separated list of user ids who should be reminded

The following example will send an email to each user who has assigned issues that are past due or due in the next 7 days:

rake redmine:send_reminders days=7 RAILS_ENV="production"

The following example will send an email to users 1, 23, and 56 who have assigned issues that are past due or due in the next 7 days:

rake redmine:send_reminders days=7 users="1,23,56" RAILS_ENV="production"
