Important info on email notification

Added by Karl-Hermann Wieners over 5 years ago

Dear user of the ZMAW Redmine Service,

due to users' demand, and in our endless efforts to make our Redmine system as useful as possible, we would like to re-configure the system to allow email notification not only for changes in Issues (as it is now), but also for News, Documents, Wikis, Forums, and Files. This means that you may e.g. go to your favourite Forum to click the 'watch' button and get an email notification whenever someone posts a new message.

While this allows for more flexibility in using Redmine for your projects, we definitely want to avoid 'Redmine spamming' for those of you who prefer checking their favourite pages themselves, or use the Atom feeds to stay up-to-date.

So we would like you to take some minutes to read the following paragraphs about the potential impact of this change for your daily work.

The change will become effective on Friday, February 15th, at noon (UTC).

Of course, if you have further questions or feedback, feel free to contact us at any time (but only expect us to answer during German office hours...)

Best regards, Your ZMAW Redmine Administration Team

Changed default columns in Issues' list

Added by Karl-Hermann Wieners about 8 years ago

Some time ago, some projects needed the 'Category' column in their issue list. In those days, this could only be done centrally, for all projects. As most projects do not seem to maintain the 'Category' settings, and as Redmine now allows for predefined specialized 'Issue' views (Custom queries), we have removed the 'Category' column but created a public Custom query 'Issues with Category' still containing that column.

You find Custom queries in the right pane of your project's 'Issues' screen. So if you want to see your issues with their respective category, just click on 'Issues with Category' and you'll be fine.

BTW, anyone can create their private Custom queries. Create your favorite listing using the small '> Filters' and '> Options' links right above the usual issue list, and then 'Save' to name this query. It will then be displayed in the right pane together with those public queries.
