#2050 closed enhancement (wontfix)

For logged in trac users, it would be nice to have a "My Next Ticket" which goes to the highest priority ticket for that user (i.e., what I should be working on right now). This link could be prominently displayed on ALL trac pages when a user is logged in.

An initial cut at this might allow a definition of "highest priority" as a SQL query in the trac.ini file, or simply link to a customized report by its report #. I guess the key thing is some framework that allows users to expand the links or buttons shown on the header of each page. I don't see any mention of this in the docs regarding administration or configuration.

I don't see much value in this very specific case. IMHO, that's more something that the Dashboard should do…

I'm sorry for being out of the loop but does the general case of a 'framework that allows … to expand the links or buttons shown on the header' exist somewhere? It doesn't seem like the dashboard does that - it seems like the dashboard is a single page and thus a little harder to use as frequently (more clicks.)

If you really want to, you can create a little plugin that will add a new toplevel navigation link to whatever target you want: check the INavigationContributor and for an example usage, the SearchModule.

Hope this helps!
