ive deployed v0.17.5 at my office and have tried to adjust the workflow
by email notification to our needs and quickly realized what a complex
matter this can become. having checked out the current v0.18 to compare,
i now see that the development is going in a similar direction to what i
had in mind. i would like to clarify where this is all headed tho.
with the new grid system, the user preferences interface seems out-dated
since it appears to set the preference for that user accross the board.
however, presenting the user with the entire grid of options would be
daunting, inadvisable and unnecessary. what was the plan for this
interface? as a suggestion, couldnt we have another config setting of
ALWAYS_ON which the user cannot override.
$g_notify_flags['new']['handler'] = ALWAYS_ON; # a handler will ALWAYS
receive a 'new' notification, even if they set their 'email_on_new' to OFF
this way when a user sets his preference for 'email_on_new' he cant
turn ON notify_flags that have been marked OFF by default (currently the
case) but correspondingly, he cant turn OFF those that are marked
ALWAYS_ON. i think this would make the workflow a little more managable
since i know there is also plans to set these prefs by project, im sure
this area will change and id just like to get some idea where its going.
