Similar to PhpBB tracking certain items by users might be a good idea:
  • You want to keep track of the development of certain items (tasks, files, comments, etc.)
  • Tracked items might be defined by you or other team members (like pointing your attention to something).
  • You can stop tracking an item anytime.
  • Tracked items are listed somewhere under home.
  • The current state of tracked items is listed in notification mails. (See below)
  • add a duration to send notification if tracked items have not been touched

In notification mails:π

Seperate two sections of projects changes:

  Project XYZ
  monitored by you [ignore all monitored]:
  • admin edited > adfjlkasdjf (to xyz) [ignore]

  sleeping monitored items [ignore all sleeping]
  • task23423 (not touched since 34 days) [ignore]

  other changes:
  • admin: edited > tasd asdf

In Comparision to bookmarksπ

Pixtur: I believe that the functions for tracking items and storing personal bookmarks are overlapping and we should decide one of them.

Features still missing with Bookmarksπ

  1. Either rename List Your Bookmarks into Monitored items (my suggestion) or add a new list Monitored Items to home.
  2. In ItemPerson-Table add new field comment e.g. to name the Monitored item / Bookmark.
  3. In TaskView, ProjView etc. add new Page Function "Monitor Item"
  4. Add new function personMonitorItem() (or itemMonitorPerson??) which provides a small form with:
    • Name/Comment
    • Checkbox Notify on Changes
    • Dropdown list Notify if not changed in (2 days, 4 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 months, 2 months, etc.)
  5. Add comment column to Monitored Items/Bookmark list
  6. Add List function Edit Monitored Item/Bookmark which opens personMonitorItem()
  7. add new Column "remind" with the number of days counting down, since an notification is been send because the item has not been changed. This is empty, if notify_if_unchanged == 0
  8. Update notification mail composition like suggested in the above example.

I already started to implement the 'notify on changes' part of this task.
But I need some feedback to proceed (see ).

What I can do now is to implement the new form for bookmarks/monitored items and the related comment column.

Is it okay if I label the new function(s) itemMonitorEdit() and itemMonitorEditSubmit()??

pixtur:This is ok...

maybe we should discuss, if "Bookmark" can be renamed into "Monitored items". Although this might not be intuitve for some users, I believe that "Bookmarking" is just a subset of "Monitoring" Tasks. But having two Names for the same thing would be even more confusing...

If you want to, we can have another Skype or normal phone session... That's probably more effective than my bad English.

You're right. We should descide if we call the monitored items "Bookmarks" or "Monitored Items". I prefer "Bookmarks" :-).

But we can have another Skype session to discuss this topic.
The problem is that I'm only at work today (till 4 or 5 pm) and then I will have holidays till 07/01/04 or 07/01/05.

So if you have time we can have a chat today. Otherwise we can have a chat when I'm back from christmas holiday.

If I don't get an answer in time I wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year :-).
