Hey guys Not new to freshdesk but new to this “look” of freshdesk. I am currently considering resubscribing however I have hit of a bit of a snag, Here is what I am looking to accomplish. Customer chooses from a certain dropdown option, that would then populate more fields / change the options entirely to either choose or type information into From what im seeing it isnt very straight forward either that or my ability to comprehend dynamic tickets is sub par haha Thanks in advance guys
To clarify, I’m asking YOU how YOU do YOUR scheduling. How can our company use Freshdesk to schedule tickets while getting an overview of who is doing what, where, and when? I’m having an incredibly difficult time grasping the concept of scheduling a date and time to resolve an open ticket. If I’m assigned a ticket on Monday that needs to be resolved by Friday, how would you suggest I add this ticket to my Outlook calendar? This should be an extremely basic function yet several support agents have be unable to suggest anything other than “use Google”. We do not use Google. We use M365. None have even thought to suggest the Zapier integration which I have started to test but find quite limited.
Hey Everyone! I work for the Ticket triaging team where the agents in our team work on analyzing the incoming tickets, and moving them to the right team for resolution. I have been trying to figure out a way to calculate the time taken by the agents to move these tickets to the right team from the time they appear on to the triage pool. I have explored the Analytics and the reports section in FD, where there are the “Ticket Lifecycle” sections available aimed at doing exactly that. However, I am unable to find an accurate response here. For instance, I can get the First assign time in business hours, Calender hours and Time spent in business hours to analyze this, but none of the columns really give a good representation of what I am trying to look for. Moreover, I also have problems in changing these time values to the standard one where I will be able to perform any calculations in Excel or Google Sheets. As you can see, the format is in “xm ys” value. Is there a way in FD to dir
We service customers from many locations. We need to copy the shipping information from their ticket into our ERP to ship them parts. Is there any way to have ticket fields with formatting. Phone number = (123)456-6890Address Is:Addr1Addr2CityStateZipvs one large text box.Force all fields except email to be uppercase.
Sometimes our agents need to create a support ticket for someone else on their team to resolve. For example, the agent's printer broke so he creates a ticket by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org. The ticket is properly assigned to another agent who replies with a pending solution.The dilemma is - whenever the agent that created the ticket replies to the other agent's response, the reply goes back to him when it should go to the agent who replied.Is there a solution for this dilemma?
Hi,I got an error “Check the rule configuration” when trying to edit “start_date” and “due_date” in an automation rule that already exists and has been edited hundreds of times.It started on 8th April, 2022.Prior to that, I have been editing the rule every morning and I’ve never got this error.Can anyone tell what is going on?
Good Day We have integrated our WhatsApp with Freshdesk, we plan to integrate 4 more numbers to allow my team to support clients. The challenge with this new integration is that we cannot setup automation rules to assign the chats from a specific number to a group in Freshdesk, all messages come through and remine unassigned, this is frustrating, since most of the tickets will be missed. Is there no way we can setup the automation like we do when we add an email in Freshdesk?
We’ve embedded the helpdesk widget to our portal. We’ve included the possibility to add screenshots there. This field is available on desktop but it’s absent on mobile. I’ve talked to support (pooooor support) and looks like the feature is not available for mobile. So, two questions1. Is it possible to fix this?2, If not - is it possible to have attachment field on mobile whereas on desktop we’d still prefer screenshots3, if this is not available for mobiles, please indicate it somehow on form configuration section.thanks
Hello everyone,I was customizing the Portal Layout header HTML page and made a grave mistake of not saving the default code. Can anyone post the default coding if you have it in the comments down below or if you have a link where it has all the default codes? You would be a lifesaver! Thank you!

He have a self programmed tool where contacts are stored with their E-Mail address. Is it somehow possible to programm, that when we would click on the Mail address, it opens a new tab with freshdesk on the New E-Mail page? Or are there any google chrome extensions that would work (we already have the click to call extension, which does basically the same but with phone numbers)? Thanks a lot
hey there guys -i’m a total FreskDesk noob - and i’m an intermediate CSS’er.I’ve changed up the header buttons to match a mock up that we’ve done, BUT it’s made other buttons go bad.Please see the screenshot and let me know if any of you have ever experienced this, and if so, how did you resolve it? Any insight and direction would be super helpful!!A bit of a time crunch on this one. it’s impacting the usability throughout the site.
I love using the team dashboard, but having a dashboard that was Agent centered would be Idealseeing how many tickets on an agent by agent basis and how many they have on hold and how many they’ve resolved would be magical. Is this something that exists? Would be an “admin” dashboard just to keep good tabs on the balance of things.
we have a customer facing portal, going to use Freshdesk Solutions to create articles for FAQ in Japanese. The main problem is “search”: Searching simple Japanese Texts DOES NOT work. It doesn't matter if they are separated by space or any character or if they are in one line. it does not work. I even put them as a Keyword in each line, it did not work. the same works for English texts.see belowscreenshot of article , note the two English and Japanese words added as Keywords: if I search for English text (works as expected ) if I search for a Japanese Text ( doesn't work while clearly separated in one line ):The only suggestion from Freshdesk support is to put the text we are searching between quotation. It works, but It simply does not solve the problem as it is a customer facing, we can not enforce users to do this all the time. Please note, the same applies if user search for anything, even full article name. we need a solution to let users simply search japanese texts without a ne
Hello, A while ago, we noticed that a Freshdesk account was automatically created for an external supplier that had been CC'd in a ticket by a customer. The account creation was triggered by his e-mail response. After reading stop account auto creation and reaching out to Freshdesk support, I have concluded that this is expected behavior by design.However, I'm wondering, is automatically storing personal data (name and e-mail) for a customer's external supplier GDPR compliant?If I look at the legal text found in the EU journal, chapter II, article 5, six possible grounds for lawfully processing personal data are listed, of which at least one should apply. To summarise: The subject has given consent Processing is necessary for performing a contract Processing is necessary to comply with legal obligations Processing is necessary to protect vital interests Processing is necessary to carry out a task in public interest Processing is necessary for the legitimite interest of the controller o
Hello,I am building a full integration of Freshdesk into a custom CRM I have built. I have managed to integrate various APIs but I am struggling with the “Reply as Customer” part.Here is my code:$body = $_POST['description']; $requester_id = intval($_POST['requester_id']); $post = json_encode(array( 'body' => $body, 'user_id' => $requester_id )); $api_key = getenv("FRESHDESK_API"); $password = "x"; $yourdomain = getenv("FRESHDESK_DOMAIN"); $url = "https://".$yourdomain.".freshdesk.com/api/v2/tickets/".$id."/notes"; $ch = curl_init($url); $header = "Content-type: application/json"; curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $header); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$api_key:$password"); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post); $response = curl_exec($ch); $decode = json_decode($response); print_r($response); curl_clo
