Add streamlined workflow-action buttons to the top of a ticket


This plugin adds a row of "action buttons" to the top of every ticket detail page. These buttons allow you to quickly act on a ticket (with a workflow action like "reassign", "resolve", "reopen", etc) without scrolling down to the Actions section. When a button is pressed, a modal dialog opens up with a small form prompting the user for any additional information, eg resolution when resolving the ticket, or new owner when reassigning, and an optional comment.

The plugin's action buttons are added to the top left of the ticket:

The plugin does nothing if Javascript is disabled.

Enable its components by setting the following in your trac.ini file:

workflow_actionbuttons.* = enabled


You can customize the labels and icons displayed for each button. To do this, create a new trac.ini section [ticket-workflow-action-buttons]:

accept.title = Accept
accept.icon = fa-thumbs-o-up
leave.title = Comment
leave.icon = fa-comments-o
leave.comment = required
assign.title = Reassign
assign.icon = fa-random
reopen.title = Reopen
reopen.icon = fa-minus-square-o
resolve.title = Close
resolve.icon = fa-check-square-o

The icons are implemented with Font Awesome, a copy of which is included in the plugin distribution. Font Awesome is itself SIL Open Font License (OFL) licensed.
