Notify users on adding note

Description

When adding a note to a document, it now goes quite unnoticed as no-one receives any direct notification of the event. While testing I assumed that the last notes dashlet in the dashboard displayed notes from all users of the system, but I now found out that this dashlet only displays your own notes. Besides that this is not very useful (you were the one making the note, so you kinda know), does it promote the need for a notification of other users on adding notes.

The implementation I've seen in other systems:

  • You add a note for a specific document
  • There are 2 checkboxes: notify the document owner, notify other users
  • When the second box is ticket you are allowed to add more users from a dropdown list
  • When the note is submitted the specified people receive a email/message/both that notifies them of the event

  • Milestone set to 7.1
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

We implemented in a different way. We added a new event 'add note' that is recorded in the history table of the document. Users that are interested in the events of the folder or of the specific document can subscribe to be notified by email.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
