Once upon a time products were mostly built based on in-house code, but with the rise of open source and re-usable components, more and more of the work is delegated to such components. Now, this is a good thing, since it allows developers to focus on the core problem they are solving, rather than a lot of mechanical or repetitive work. Continue reading

Kinda excited about this one! We’ve now re-invented our hugely popular email reporting functionality and it’s been reborn as our MantisHub Helpdesk!
Customers can email your MantisHub Helpdesk email address to report issues straight into your issue tracker. Your customers will be notified via email when issues are updated with public notes or if the issues are resolved, closed, or re-opened.
MantisHub’s latest update has a few hidden gems. One of our favorites is support for @ mentions to loop in your co-workers or customers into conversations around issues. This will triggering notifications that they are mentioned in issues or associated notes.
In line with what all the other cool services are doing (twitter, github, etc) you simply type @joe (where ‘joe’ is the username) in an issue summary, description or a note. Joe will be emailed the note with a link to the issue and content where they were referenced, providing context of what they are being asked to respond to.
The email notifications for mentions has a distinguished subject, so you won’t miss out on items that you need to action. The feature is also extra useful when mentioning someone that wouldn’t have otherwise even got a notification about your new note or issue.
For @ mentions to work for you team, you should follow these guidelines for usernames:
- Don’t use email addresses as usernames. Note that if you use a snappy & short username, login with their email address will still work!
- Don’t use spaces in user names.
