Description (last modified by Christopher Lenz)

You should be able to customize a 'New Ticket' form by sending preset values as URL arguments.

This is very useful for customized feedback links on a website.

Typical use case:

  • User visits product website
  • Clicks "give feedback" link
  • New Ticket form is presented, with all relevant values already filled out
  • User enters summary, description, reviews and submits with minimum effort

This is also very useful for automatic bug reports, for example we could add to the Trac exception handling a mechanism to submit a bug report directly from the (local) error-screeen, and include the traceback.

This actually already works in 0.8. Not sure what change introduced this feature though.

This should be documented in TracTickets (fieldnames, example)
