When creating a use I need to set the user options manually each time (time zone, notification options, etc...). It would be very useful if we could have a "Set as default" checkbox that carried the settings forward to newly created users or the addition of an option in the system settings to specify which options admins want for default user settings.

+1 - Now that we are using redmine more, this would be really useful to have. Currently, our users are set up on LDAP. And for every user, we need to change the timezone manually. Thanks.

In recent versions of Redmine, you can set default values for new users in Administration > Settings > Users.

Configurable defaults are as follows:

  • Hide my email address
  • Default notification option
  • I don't want to be notified of changes that I make myself
  • Time zone
