Redmine sends email notifications when specific events occur. Who gets notified about the event depends on the event and each user’s preference. Normally you will want to let users choose the setting that fits their email usage but on fast moving projects it can be useful to make sure everyone is notified of every change.
As an administrator you are given the ability to change another user’s notification preferences.
- Go to the Users administration panel. Admin > Users
- Find the user you want to edit and click on their login
- On the user edit page, near the bottom you will see the Email Notifications options
Some of my clients have found this useful when an employee is away on vacation and their auto responder starts to run amok.
