Redmine Issue Reminder

Plugin provides an easy to use interface to set up automatic email reminder to every project. Every reminder uses a custom query with all their filter options to select issues and performs periodical email transmission on a role basis.

Following intervals are possible:

  • Daily (Selecting interval from every 1st day until every 6th day)
  • Weekly (Selecting weekday)
  • Monthly (Selecting day of the month)

Installation - Linux (Tested on Ubuntu by Me)

Download the sources and put them to your vendor/plugins folder.

$ cd {REDMINE_ROOT}
$ git clone git://github.com/ascendro/redmine_issue_reminder.git vendor/plugins/redmine_issue_reminder

Migrate database.

$ rake db:migrate:plugins

(See also http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Plugins )

For the periodical transmission a daily cron job has to be created:

$sudo crontab -e
0 6 * * * cd {REDMINE_ROOT} && rake reminder:exec RAILS_ENV="production" > /dev/null 2>&1

Restart Redmine

Run Redmine and have a fun!

The reminder functionality can be activated in each project as module and can be configured through the project menu entry "Reminder Settings". A special right needs to be configured in order to allow project member to edit reminder.

Installation - Windows (Tested on WinXP by Steven Wong)

Enviroment : Winxp + Redmine 1.2.X + Mysql 5.X

Troubleshouting

How can i customize the queries?

Take a look at the official documentation about custom queries: http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineIssueList#Custom-queries

I don't see the Reminder Settings

Add permission to Your user.

The issue reminder doesn't send mails

We use redmine internal mail send functions, therefore the outgoing email settings has to be set in config/emai.yml or config/configuration.yml

I can not use the windows scheduler (WinXP related)

You need to have a user password set for your windows user in order to use the windows scheduler.
