    Where would we send the summary to? If people are subscribed to individual tickets, they still should be notified.

    A changelog comment is added to each ticket which sends out a notification. We need to bypass that and instead roll up all the changes into one email per person who is subscribed to one of the ticket(s). Each email will have to be filtered to show just the tickets that user is subscribed to (and has permission to view).

    The idea is that if you affect 100 tickets, you don't want to generate 100 emails. Just one. I'd imagine that you would build a set of addresses in the affected emails and send a single email with a summary of the bulk change.

    We don't want the email to be huge, so please do not include more than one line per affected ticket. Number and summary is probably enough.

      Didn't you read Dave's comment at d933? This ticket is more about how to send one email to people who are subscribed to an individual ticket being changed. If the person is subscribed to just one ticket then that person will only see the change to that one ticket. If he is subscribed to two of the tickets then he will receive one email about the two tickets. It will be similar to a digest mode for a mail list but in this case the list is each individual user so there are multiple lists to care for.

      As an admin you will see 100 changes in that one email because you would be subscribed to all 100 of the tickets. Perhaps the format of the email should change if an individual receiving an email receives more than five of the changed tickets. Maybe if an individual is receiving an email containing all of the changes should receive a link to a log of the changed tickets. Maybe a log display should be created for each individual user for the changed subscribed items with a link to the comment of the change. Then allow the user to opt-out of the email notification and they can monitor the log subscriptions via RSS or just by clicking a link from their account subscriptions.

        Somehow I missed that :-). The behavior you both describe is what I'd expect. Thanks!
