How to manage deadlines for issues?

Post by rakekniven » Apr 22, 2010 4:15 am

I run 1.2.0 and question myself how to manage a deadline for an issue?

My intention:
Create an issue and add deadline (due date) to it.

It would be perfect if assigned person would receive a notification when deadline is reached.
Or before (x days).

Best regards

I have no own experience with it, but maybe worth a try: http://git.mantisforge.org/w/Reminder.git

Interesting link.

But I question myself how to set (where to set) a due date?

Cheers

another link with information http://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=10153

Just as an example: Enter the following lines to file config_inc.php if you want that every one with role DEVELOPER or higher is able to see the due date and alle users with role MANAGER or higher ar able to change it.

Code: Select all

$g_due_date_update_threshold = MANAGER;
$g_due_date_view_threshold = DEVELOPER;
TBH, I just hope that this "due date" is the same "due date" where people are talking about in this plugin.
As I said, never used it by myself.

This should really be clearer - at least mentioned in the documentation.

It took me a while to figure out how to show due dates, and nobody in IRC knew.

Can we add a configuration option to the web interface or add an entry to the documentation about this please.
