Due date for queue

Hi.

I created a new queue and filled in the field “Requests should be due
in:” with the value 1 .
So I expected when a ticket was created in this queue that the due date
will be automatically set to “today + 1 day” but in fact not.

What is this field useful for ?

Thanks,
Laurent

I suspect that something is odd in your system. On my system, the Due
date on the Ticket is set as expected (to be the number of days set in the
Queue.

Refer to the ‘Escalator’ in contrib (www.fsck.com/pub/rt/2.0/contrib);
this gradually alters the priority as the ticket approaches CreateTime +
DueDate .

Apart from that, nothing much uses it.

My RT installation (2.0.13) has this bug as well: when creating a ticket
in the WebUI, Due is set to today. When creating a ticket via the
mailgate, Due is set correctly (today + 7 days in my case).
However, it hasn’t bothered me enough yet to have a closer look at it.

That’s because there’s a bug in the handling of that option. There’s
a patch at

which might help.
