Email Notification Rule Enhancement

        TheBugTrack used to only support a few default email notification rules.  With latest update, TheBugTrack service has enhanced email notification rule settings, which allow users to edit email rules, adding your own cc fields, etc. Here are the detail steps:

        Firstly, please click "Settings" next to your project name to enter the project settings page:

        On settings page, please click tab "Email Notifications":

        On "Email Notification" tab, you will find there are five possible triggers of email notification:
  • When bug is submitted
    • When a bug is submitted and stays at "New" state.  No default rule for this trigger.
  • When bug is assigned
    • When a bug enters "Assigned" state, or fixer has been changed.  By default, "fixer" is notified when a bug is assigned.
  • When bug is resolved
    • When a bug enters "In Test" state, or tester has been changed.  By default, "tester" is notified when a bug is resolved.
  • When bug is closed
    • When a bug enters "Closed" state.  No default rule for this trigger.
  • When any change to a bug
    • When any changes happening to a bug within this project.  The changes could be state transition, or bug modification, or simply adding a note.  No default rule for this trigger.
        User can click the checkbox in front of each rule to turn on/off a specific rule, and click "Edit" box to edit this rule, as the image below shows:

        In rule edit dialog, user can set if the email notification is sent to bug submitter, fixer, tester, or any other email addresses.  Manually-input email addresses should be separated by comma (,) or semicolon (;).

        Please feel free to play with these enhanced email rules, and let us know what you think.  Thank you.
