Place to offer bounties for Mantis enhancements?

Post by samtuke » Aug 06, 2018 8:14 am

Hello there, what's the best place to offer bounties for Mantis enhancements? There are a few improvements that would make a big difference to our use of mantis, but I don't want to put the issue+bounty in a place / platform that mantis devs won't ever see.

Out of interest the things we need changed are:

- Allow assigning issues during the initial reporting step (from the new issue page)
- Remove the additional 'add note' page step when assigning an issue (e.g. clicking submit submits successfully with no further page loads)
- More advanced user search field options (like https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=4843)

We'd want these changes to be incorporated into core if possible (not just supplied as patch files) for easy updating and so others could theoretically benefit from them.

Posting to Gitter is worth a try https://gitter.im/mantisbt/mantisbt

Works out of the box.
Goto page Manage > Manage Configuration > Workflow Thresholds
Enable checkboxes in row "Assign an issue" for all access levels you want to allow assigning issues

Seems you use "Change Status To" button for it.
Use button "Assign To" to assign issues without adding a note.

I assume you mean a feature enhancement like https://mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=12677
Unfortunately there was no user who finished the work.
You could add a note to the issue and offer bounties.
Please use Search before posting and read the Manual

Very many thanks!

Bounty offered in the issue that you linked, hopefully as you suggested.
