"Send copies of activity in tracker to e-mail..." blank => mail sent with blank "To:" field
It happens to me with Tiki 1.9.0.

I've got two trackers. At their admin screen, I have the option:
"Send copies of all activity in this tracker to this e-mail address:" filled with a valid e-mail address (email1), and the second oone with an empty field there. I have them both monitored with my email address as user in the tiki site (email2).

When there is a new item created for the first tracker, I get two email messages. one to each email adress (email one, and email2)

When there is a new item created for the second tracker, I get just one email message. the one to email2. But hte problem is that the system admin in my server gets a message with an empty "To:" field.

It seems as if messages from "Send copies of all activity in this tracker to this e-mail address:" are attempted to be sent, even if there is no email entry there...
Could this be the cause of the problem?

An example of the wrong email headers here:
I'm using catalan l10n of Tiki, and "Damian-based" theme style.

Tracker Watch notification if not simple
In the function: function send_replace_item_notifications($args)
in lib/trackers/trackerlib.php, and change to the tracker generates an error and a failure for attempting to assign() to a non-existent object.

The line that generates it is:
$smarty->assign('mail_date', $this->now);

But if I comment that out, the next one generates it - so I think it is all assigns.

The error occurs if: I have a standard "watch" on all tracker activity. I have not tested moving the notification into the tracker setup screen.

To test, I:
1. Manually set $simpleEmail = "y"; error goes away
2. Set the Simple Email flag on the edit tracker prefs screen - error does NOT go away

Group watches broken in 7.1
Group watches works in 6.2, but in 7.1. The settings do not save. When the group watch is selected the response shows that the group is set. But when navigating back to the settings page, none of the groups are selected.

5.0: anonymous shouldn't see "watch" icons when browsing category tree
Using Tiki 5.0: anonymous shouldn't see "watch" icons when browsing category tree.
And they can.
Reproduced here, for instance:

5.0: since upgrade from 3.x, forum post emails to author missing, from other users ok
We recently upgraded precarios.org site from 3.6 to 5.0 (and migrated to a new server; dns propagating right now).

Since then, when you post a message in a forum that you are watching, you don't get a copy of your own email, but only copies of emails sent by others.

This is expected to allow users to follow a full thread in the email program.

For wiki page changes, you get also notification of your own changes.

5x-16.x: tracker comments should allow self-subscribe option for poster, like in forum posts or page comments
5x: tracker comments should allow self-subscribe option for poster, like in forum posts or page comments. Right now, lost of interaction and feedback is lost for users until they learn how to subscribe to tracker items....

That was the same problem in forum posts for years, until some one added that feature to forum posts and wiki comments...
However, it seems that tracker item comments didn't benefit from that enhancement.... and honestly, they deserve it...

UPDATE:
* Still a very much desired feature in MANY tiki sites (including *.t.o sites). {sign user="xavi" datetime="2013-11-17T09:30:58+00:00"}
* Still a wish...{sign user="xavi" datetime="2014-07-13T10:00:49+00:00"}
* Still a wish (many years later). Sniff ... {sign user="xavi" datetime="2016-06-28T08:55:07+00:00"}

Gorgeus, fixed, Victor! Thanks! (tested in tracker comments, and adapted the profile "Bug_Tracker_15" to allow commenting by registered to easily test/debug this issue also in the future (or in other branches). {sign user="xavi" datetime="2016-10-11T17:21:14+00:00"}

Update: {sign user="xavi" datetime="2016-10-11T17:38:28+00:00"}
* emails are duplicated if the user was also selected in a "user selector" type of field, with notifications on. We should check that no duplication of emails is sent: one as commenter, and another one duplicated as user selected in the "user selector" field with notifications on.
See it reproduced in the show instance:
2 emails have been sent in some cases:
http://xavi-9794-3214.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-syslog.php
u: admin
p: 12345

* Tracker item commented:
+ http://xavi-9794-3214.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_tracker_item.php?itemId=5
* see email corresponding to each user:
+ http://xavi-9794-3214.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-adminusers.php
* see tracker field definition:
+ http://xavi-9794-3214.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-admin_tracker_fields.php?trackerId=1
** note last 3 fields, all of them user selector with email notification on.
---
Update {sign user="xavi" datetime="2016-10-13T10:40:17+00:00"}
In addition, other systems maybe sending a duplicate of the same email message (see https://doc.tiki.org/Watch ), and we'd better add a system to prevent those duplicated emails to be sent.
To be checked for duplicates (and remove them before sending):
# generic (wildcard-like) user watches through the "__My Watches (UI) > Add Watch > Event__"
# Objects
** user watches on objects
** group watches on objects
# Categories
** user watches on categories
** group watches on categories
# Structures
** user watches on structures
** group watches on structures

I'm usure about category watches. Maybe we can leave those messages also, since they are not 100% equivalent to the other notification emails?
---
Sure, see comments. Issue fixed. {sign user="xavi" datetime="2016-10-14T10:13:36+00:00"}
And duplication of emails was due to some other issue, fixed by kroky6 also (great, thanks!).

A file was attached to "XYZ" email notification lacks information who did that
tracker item
add a label like [forum name XXX] in each email from monitorized forum post or thread....
Forums are getting powerful enough to substitute mailing lists on many tiki sites (yahhogroups, etc.). However, notification messages from forums cannot be added easily to local email filters since the subject doesn't contain a label like [[Forum X - site Y] to ease this task.
{CODE()}
[Forum X - site Y]
{CODE}

I guess this must be very easy for a coder (just adding some variable to a smarty template? and adding a call to that variable if needed from the related .php or .tpl file - I just get the rough idea... I wish I could do that myself...)
tracker item
Add a select box to monitor each own's forum post, comments or tracker submission or wiki page at post time
I've been thinking for ages that this kind of option is REALLY needed, and I thought it should not be much coding effort:

Automonitoring each own's posts, through either:
# Add a select box to monitor each own's forum post or tracker submission at post time, in a "per forum post or tracker item insertion" basis, or
# with a user preference for all forums, or all trackers, blogs, etc..

Still needed...

Add email notification for suggested FAQ

add group watch to articles
Add group watch to articles

This way we could also have all users informed about comunity news , etc. in tiki sites.

In fact, the best option would be what it's done with newsletters: subscribe that bunch of users from a group, and let them unsubscribe it they wish and when they wish, without admin action. But if no action is done, they all get the copy of the article at their email, etc.

Add Group Watches to Categories, so that Organic Groups can receive automatic notification on changes about their topics (e.g. Infrastructure Team when tracker item related with *.t.o sites).

Add label [feature: object] to notification emails from a tiki site: wikipages, forums, trackers...
Right now, all messages from tiki forums of the same tiki site have the same subject. Or all tracker items from different trackers from the same tiki site.
I suggest that notifications from each forum, or tracker, etc., have some label like in e-mail lists [[LABEL], that they look like:
* "[[TRACKERNAME] Current notification subject"
* "[[FORUMNAME] Current notification subject"

Or even better: allow an empty text field to be filled at tracker and forum admin screen where the admin can write the content of the label sent in subjects of notification emails from this feagture/site.

add watch calendar event in tiki-user_watches.php
I know that calendars can be watched by users through links like:

tiki-calendar.php?watch_event=calendar_changed&watch_action=add

But this link doesn't work like this other one:
http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-user_watches.php?event=article_submitted&add=Add

I mean, Anonymous users clicking on the first link (calendar watch event, as it is right now), would not be offered any message to login or register first.
With the second link (watch article), the user will be shown the login box to login first, before the action can be executed.

This is to make more easy for new users to know that they can subscribe by email to get info from calendars if they register to that tiki site.

Admin>Login>User defaults or Admin>Groups: Ability to Subscribe new users to specific Tiki objects
It would be lovely to set some new user defaults at
* Admin (home) > Login > User defaults, and/or
* Admin > Groups > (Edit a single group)

The ability to Subscribe/watch/monitor new users in the site or to that specific group, to specific Tiki objects.

Which tiki objects?: I would say, in this order:
# specific forums
# specific blogs
# specific calendars
# specific newsletters (ML: we can already subscribe groups to newsletters)
# specific wiki pages
# specific structures
# specific trackers
# specific categories
# new articles

This is specially useful for new users of the site, where they don't know yet how to subscribe to specific areas, etc. Very needed for educational scenarios, but I can see many other places where new users are a bit lost for some time while they learn how to use the Tiki site.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
