Improvement #971

Confirm before taking text as a task/entry description

Intro: If you have great memory, and you remember all rule properly to be used, perhaps this issue not for You - You are ideal


1) Create a task for a Redmine Issue
2) Create comment for a task
3) Vote [for | against] #issue_number (especially need to parse if word “on is entered with “vote” word”, other wise it will be new task, and AGAIN without confirmation)

There are places where we should add confirmation to continue processes
And I believe that will find other places where we need confirmation.

WOULD BE GREAT at least to have this functionality as User Customized (switch on|off)

I know that confirmation on every steps will be annoying, but anyway - SYSTEM should be perfect
And I think it is better to re-ask user, then insert new records to database, wait when user understand that he was failed with creation, and then delete fail record from database.

Please vote for the FR, cause a.lesyuk needs it a lot.

Just a note - when creating a task Orangutan does not write anything to the database... It only does when closing the task.

I believe there should some other way to improve this... Postponing fixing this issue for a “better times”. I guess there should be some architecture improvements e.g. modes - some special task description mode will behave like current, another mode can ask for confirmation.

Shortly - I need to think more...

  • Status changed from Open to Incomplete

I believe this issue should be fixed in some other way... Not sure which one however... for now... So setting “Incomplete”. Vote for this issue if you want it to be done in the way described here...
