Smile Autoresponder: Start and end date

Hi All,

One of the features I miss from other panels is the ability to set start and end times for an autoresponder. At the moment we have to make notes of when to switch off which particular responder as suppose to the autoresponder automatically being activated/de-activated.

I would like to add this feature. Would anyone else like the same thing? and how do you see that being implemented?

If implemented should start and end dates replace the enabled tickbox or should backward compatibility be kept and the user can choose.

Attached is a screenshot of the autoresponder page with date selection added. It's a little different to the other forms but logically it seems better to group them.

Adding them as rows in the form obfuscates usability (for me at least) and after all the dates are related to whether or not the responder is active.

Comments?

Looks nice. I think it would be good to make it "active and date" and not "active or date". What do you think?

I think that depends on the functionality we want. Personally "active and date" would be my preference.

But I didn't want to force the user into setting dates if they didn't want to. Maybe the default state of the date fields should be '--'?

Hi All,

I've added the dates feature and tested on debian & gentoo. Hope you like the way it works.

@Horfic let me know if there is anything I can do RE your plugin.

Till just needs to modify the remote command and i can rebuild the autoresponder. Otherwise you can send me your working version for the ispconfig and I will change it my self and send it then to tim.
