"This message will be sent to..." confirmation page

We have RT 3.4.4 running with appr. 25 users. Most of them struggle with
whom a message will be sent to using the RT transaction page.

Although RT clearly lists who will receive the message (below the message
field), I would like to add an additional page before a message will be
sent.

This page should display a small recap of the people who actually will
receive the message, together with something like a Confirm and a Cancel
button.

Is there anyone who has such functionality? Or does someone have a good idea
how to implement this in RT? Or are others using a different "solution"
maybe?

Best Regards,

Werner van den Berg

Hello Werner,

We have a mason component called ShowAutoRecipients that will list
the mail recipients in a format similar to a mail client (To, Cc, and
Bcc sections). I’ve attached the code. There’s a call to a
GetAttribute method that’s part of another mod we made, so you’ll
need to remove that if you use this code.

Very nice.

I don’t recall seeing anything on “how to use or add custom mason
components”

Is the idea that you add save the file in rt3/path/to/local and then
edit the template that is used for the Update ticket page and include a
couple lines that call the mason component and then restart and it will
show up on the page?

Do you mid if I create a wiki page with the information/code?

Yes, we put this in local/html/Ticket/Elements. Whichever page you
want to include this on would then have a call to the component
(passing a ticket object as an argument).

Be my guest!

Note that this component does not tell you why a recipient appears,
so there’s not quite as much info as the standard RT ‘this message
will be sent to’ section. We kicked around the idea of providing a
link to a page explaining what scrips were used in determining the
recipients, so that people could go there if they wanted to, but we
haven’t got round to that yet.

Thanks,
Steve
