Today, the start date and the due date doesn't appears in the email sent when we create a new issue.
It would be really useful to make them appears for being aware of the priority of the issue.

Anyone know if this is possible via a plugin? I have someone asking if these fields can be added to the notification email.

Hi, I'm using Redmine2.4.1.
It works fine when I added "start_date" and "due_date" to issues_helper.rb as the following code.
Could you add to the latest Redmine, too? It would be really useful!

In redmine/app/views/mailer/reminder.html.erb, put <%= issue.due_date issue.start_date > before the <= link_to_issue()%>

Hi, I am using Redmine 3.4.2.
I have edited the file 'app/helpers/issues_helper.rb' as Tiffany C's post but it not works.
I want the notification email include the info start date and due date.
If you have the solution please let me know. Thank you very much
