Lower First Response Time?
Hello, I have recently noticed that you can not set a first response time within the SLA polices lower than 15 minutes. Our company is looking to set this SLA to 5 minutes, is there an scope to have this setting amended so that lower times can be set?Also to go with this the lowest notification/approach timer that can be set is 30minutes. Would there be any scope to amend these to a custom timer.
Translating "Your Name" field in Help Widget
Hello all!First time messaging here.By default, Help Widgets have a field in them that is called “Your Name”. I need to translate this field label to another language (in this case, Finnish).However, I cannot find the field in either Ticket or Customer fields to rename it. Adding Finnish as a secondary language in the system did not update it in the widget either.Widget is used outside Freshdesk Portal.Any advice would be appriciated!
Creating an advanced article on the Knowledge base
Hello, When I create an article in our company’s Knowledge base, I need to customize it with code. I saw that there is a code view, but it seems that the HTML code I configure does not work as expected (I tested in a different environment and it worked). I am trying to code dropdown content buttons.Is it possible on Freshdesk system? If it does, what is the best way to do so? I want to have the option to click on a buttom with a subject, and that button will open a sub-article. I need several buttons inside one article. Thank you,Amit
Adjust description field size for customers
I’m new in freshdesk and I have the same question, however, the topic has been closed.Is there a way to adjust the size of the description field ? Most of my customers want to include a printscreen in the text, but then the windows of the description field is way to small.

Reopen on reply does not work in the free version?
I am struggling trying to figure out what is a bug, and what is just not available in the free version. The canned email for resolved tickets in the free version states that the ticket will reopen on reply. I tested this and it does not reopen the ticket. So, is that a bug or just something that is not available in the free version?
PlaceHolders for Log Time field Feature request
Hi,I’m trying to have an email sent to the billing group that contains information for invoicing my customers. I was able to have an automated email containing placeholders for most of the info required, but I would need these 2 fields from the Logtime portion to be added in the email.Are you able to create a PlaceHolder for these fields? Thanks,
Microsoft 365 Shared Mailbox support
Hi there, We are using M365 Shared Mailboxes for our engagement with customers. Now we are evaluating changing to freshdesk, but it seams like there is no support for shared mailboxes so far. That would be blocker for us and I wanted to ask if there is a way to get the Microsoft email integration, which freshdesk seams to support, to work with shared mailboxes. As far as I can see, it would be sufficient to have a place to enter the exchange mailbox that should be used with the authentication provided instead of using the default mailbox of the user. So is there a way to get this done or is this a feature that is in development? This would unblock us and help us move forward with freshdesk. Thanks, Sia
Data about the use of templates
Hey guys. All good?I did a search and couldn't find it, sorry if I'm asking something that has already been discussed.Currently, we have a problem with agent engagement regarding the use of predefined answers. At the same time, fresh does not provide any kind of metrics regarding templates.Does anyone here know of a way to measure predefined answers usage?If only this was in the "show activity" reports, we could map it to quality monitoring. However, we don't have any log of that record.If anyone knows anything about this or any stopgap measures, that would be really great!
Freshdesk very long SPF record is a problem
Hi, we are using Freshdesk support desk and until now Freshdesk has been sending email’s on our behalf. This means that we have to add email.freshdesk.com to our SPF record. This means that Freshdesk alone adds 8 DNS queries to our SPF record and the standard allows for only 10 in total.For comparison Microsoft adds two for the whole of Office 365.Now, what i have feared has happened and we have passed the limit and our SPF record is not valid anymore. I don’t know if we added the one or if Freshdesk added another sub record.There is really two problems, one is the size of the record to begin with and the other is that Freshdesk can add subrecords at anytime without any of their customers knowing and pushing that client over the limit.I think therefore it is very important for suppliers that have SPF that is used by alot of customers to be very small and maintained correct.One solution is to create your SPF record and then only add ip addresses to this record that you then maintain whe
Freshdesk App on phone
I’ve found that you don’t have the feature where you can select an agent or collaborator to tag in a note on the App. As you can’t do this, do you have to type in their email address and would this work or associate them with their agent role? Is this something that could be improved? My colleague also has issues when he receives a Freshdesk ticket notification viewed on his phone. If you try and access the ticket via the link, instead of taking you straight to it you are then prompted to login via the website rather than go to the ticket on the App – again is this something that could be improved?
Ability to Unmerge Contacts or Tickets
Hi, we recently have a joint customer account in FreshDesk who now want to go their separate ways. Even though the mobile number has been deleted from the contact to create a new account for the other customer, any calls and text are still creating and logging under the previous joint account. We’re aware we can completely delete the contacts to start from scratch but we don’t want to loose previous tickets/communications with the customers. Is there a possibility to have a function allowing us to unmerge customers or tickets please?
Merge tickets with partly same subject
Hi.I need a solution to combine sequential tickets (and/or autoresponses to FD tickets bouncing back and forth) from another ITSM solution.The not-changing part is the start of the subject, it has a static ingredient, but the rest of the subject will vary. the FD ticket number appended to the response subject is not retained by the other solution. Now a new ticket is always created. Can these be automerged based on below data? Example: INCTASK0120255: TestTicket Ref:xxxMSG1555768_16Inp9KQt5Qp33tA7 INCTASK0120255: TestTicket Ref:xxxMSG1555694_2uah9xMQRl9i5Za4Z Marko
Hi there, we have a lot of differents scenarios (we talk 6 languages) and I think that it’s necessary to allow us to classify Scenarios into folders, or give us the option to search by name of Scenario. Right now we have to navigate page by page and we lost a lot of time. A serach option in Canned Responses and Ticket templates would we nicee too. Thank you,Oriol
Different subjects from requesters for one ticket
There are usual situation, when during the conversation requester change subject and this reply is in the initial ticket, how to answer correct for this type of response? Because now, when we answer, the answer does not take into account the last response because of different subjects.
