Introduction Edit

Some people don't like priority to be a number and want to use text labels.

RT 3.8.3 or newer Edit

RT-Extension-PriorityAsString is an extension on the CPAN that is maintained by folks from BestPractical.

Older versions Edit

Home page of this extension for older versions is here: http://www.parliant.com/~cmh/rt/

User Comments Edit

- anyone using this successfully with RT 3.4.4? - DuncanShannon

- Upload a new patch to use with RT 3.5.5 at the following URL: http://wiki.bestpractical.com/plugin/attachments/TextBasedPriorities/priority-labels-rt3.5.5.patch. Carlos Fuentes

- Has anyone used this with RT 3.6.1? - LeeWhalen

- 3.6.1 wasn't working for us; however, I just found the post below by Brent Parish.

This fixed our problem. - JudsonMain

http://lists.bestpractical.com/pipermail/rt-users/2006-September/041633.html

Note: Brent Parish followed this up by noting the the word "default" in the above fix should also be capitalized.

- 3.6.3 patch with case corrections and other updates posted to website. Optional color-coding of labels is included.

- 3.6.6 - Tested and works. Just make sure not to apply the patch twice by accident. J Speicher

Bug Edit

This is patch to correct a bug, probably in all the versions of the prioritylabel extension : when you do a bulk update on several tickets, the priorities are reset. This has been tested on RT 3.6.6 and RT 3.8.2
