Email copies of replies to senders

Hi rt-users,

I’m not sure where to look for this and I couldn’t find where in the
config or preferences this can be done, but is is possible to have
replies sent to the replying person? So if I reply to a ticket, I would
get a copy of my own reply as well as the other people?

Thanks,

  • Dominic

Dominic,

RT doesn't normally notify the initiator of a transaction, as it 

would be redundant (plus there is a record of the reply in the ticket
history). However, if that is what you want, you need to turn on the
"Notify Actor setting in your RT_SiteConfig.pm file located at
$RTHOME/etc. Hope this helps.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your reply, I think that’s what we are looking for.

When I took another look in the mailing list archives, I saw mention of
this being added as a user setting / preference in an email from 2005.
We couldn’t find any such setting in 3.8.3, is this feature available
somewhere?

The author of the quoted mail doesn’t work for BPS,
I believe it was added as a local user preference by that author.

3.8 allows users to completely disable mail from RT as a user
preference, or to receive daily digests of mail

However, I have the same need and would love to hear if anyone has a solution.

I have a few owners who work primarily via email on Blackberry and love getting the text of a request via email when it’s assigned to them. However, if they happen to be in front of their computer and take a request, no email. So when they’re back out in the field, they can’t refer to the email as easily. Turning on/off NotifyActor at a user level or a scrip level would be fantastic. Turning on/off email completely even at the user level is much too broad a stroke for most scenarios.

Is it possible that if you manually add the person as a CC in the scrip that RT will outsmart you and override that with NotifyActor being off?

Thanks,
Erik
