|Summary||0011178: Provide ability to set up delegation of users|
currently one can set up users who get owner of new issues by project and issue category. Those users get auto assigned to the issue and get notified. Fine. But what if the person is on vacation?
It would be nice if one could set up a sort of delegation where another user during the vacation is autoassigned but the original setting is not lost. So after the vacation the original setting could be restored without much hassle and remembering which categories somebody was formeerly auto assigned.

I believe in other trackers this is achieved by having a user A "watch" another user B, so that all the notifications going to user A are also sent to user B.
The policy about who should be able to se the "watch" flag is to be investigated
There are two approaches here:
a. Emails like password resets must not honor such delegation.
b. Delegation from a disabled user to enabled user, should result in the enable delegate receiving the email, but the disabled original user not receiving the email.
Hm, your answers go into a slightly different direction than what I wanted. There's currently the possibility to auto assign issues (based on settings for the project internal categories) to some mantis user. He's notified and the report gets the assigned status. So I'm only talking about this mechanism. This would prevent new issues from being stalled until the other person comes back from vacation or whatever. And since the issue is assigned to that delegation user he get's the e-mail notifications for that issue automatically.
I have a Holiday plugin which one can try
Latest vesrion of that plugin is under:
If so, I will remove the attachment Holidays.zip and attach it as Holidays097.zip at 0011080
