Adding user defined columns is really great and I love it.

What I would like to do is the following:

We have several over web based systems which track certain things, an example are our MR (modification request) and TR (trouble report) numbers, so what I did is added these as user defined fields to various workflow types..

It works great. What I would like to define though is the ability to specify a template for a URL.


Details about an MR number can be found under:

When I make 'MR' a user defined field, I would during definition also like to specify the URL template in the form:
(or similar)

so that whenever the MR number is displayed anywhere in the program, it is a hyperlink to the specified address template for the column.

We have several different databases and having direct links that are directly clickable would make life a lot easier.

sounds a little bit like this plugin: http://www.redmine.org/wiki/redmine/PluginSimpleSupport

It's similar, but not the same. I'm definitely going to try the mentioned plugin though - thanks for that!

However, what I am proposing is so that once you have added the user defined column that all the values you enter in it can become links, you also then don't need to always enter full urls.
