New Control Panel Feature

Customers may have noticed over the last week we have completed deployment of a new version of the ProjectHut Control Panel. The main change has been the addition of a new “Trac Settings” page in the control panel.

The “Trac Settings” page allows you to tweak the behaviour of your Trac installations, beyond what is already possible from the Trac Admin tab. Additional features include being able to:

  • Change the maximum size of Trac attachments.
  • Enable email notification of Trac ticket changes.
  • Setup CC and BCC email addresses for Trac ticket changes.
  • Change the default number of days shown in the Timeline view.
  • Allow tickets to be assigned from a drop-down list of available users, rather than having to type the username in for each ticket.

To access this page, first login to the Control Panel section of your account. This can be found at:


Select the “Trac Settings” link on the left side of the control panel. Select which Trac project you wish to edit the settings for, and click View. This page is also accessible from the “settings” link on the “Trac Projects” page.

IMPORTANT NOTE: in order for the “email notification” and “drop-down user-list” features to work correctly, once they are enabled each Trac user is also required to register their email address in the Trac system. To do this, each user must:

  • Go to your Trac project page and click the “Login” link at the top-right of the page to authenticate.
  • Click on the “Settings” link at the top-right of the page.
  • Enter their name and email address and click the “Submit changes” button.

If you have any questions about how to use these new features, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Enjoy!
