Description

We suspect that multitude of user configuration knobs for reporting is not used, also, it complicates incorporation of new algorithms (especially reporting to more groups in one mail - To+Cc differentiation).

We need to review the group settings - how many are changed far from default, how, and for which groups and then consider finding reasonable systemwide defaults and possible removing some altogether.

History

#2 Updated by Pavel Kácha 3 months ago

After review and discussion:

  • template - visible and settable only by admin
  • reporting timing - systemwide config only
  • attachment size limit + compression + formats - let’s get rid of attachments altogether, leave only link for download from web. As it will need some communication to users, let’s track in separate ticket #6255.
  • as for locale and timestamps, still open for discussion, possibilities are:
    • leave as is (in reports to multiple recipients use the most specific one, others tough luck) - good for working with timestamps for local people
    • make reports bilingual
    • make reports english

After discussion - let’s leave as is, we chose by most specific settings.

Mute + Redirect must stay per group for debugging, but only changeable by admin.
(And also reporting mode, changeable by group.)
