Description

If issues are restricted in use to actionable items and forums are used for general discussion and brainstorming, it would be nice to be able to add watchers to threads (by permission, of course).

If a project manager could add others as watchers to threads, they would be informed of their creation and updates (much like adding watchers to issues).

At the moment, there's no way to inform a subset of a project's members that a thread is relevant to them.

Committed the patch. Thank you for improving Redmine.

Now users who have appropriate permissions can add watchers to existing forum messages. The following three permissions have been added.

  • View message watchers list
  • Add message watchers
  • Delete message watchers
