Automating Data Export in Freshdesk
I'm currently using Freshdesk as my primary customer support platform and I need to export tickets on a regular basis for reporting purposes. However, manually exporting tickets can be time-consuming and tedious, especially when I need to export large amounts of data.I'm wondering if it's possible to schedule export tickets in Freshdesk, and if so, how can I set up this feature? Are there any third-party tools or integrations that can help me automate this process?Specifically, I'm interested in learning about the different scheduling options available in Freshdesk, such as daily, weekly, or monthly exports. How do I determine the best schedule for my needs and ensure that the exported data is up-to-date and accurate?Additionally, I'm curious about the different export formats supported by Freshdesk, such as CSV, XLS, and PDF. How do I choose the right format for my reporting needs, and what are the benefits and limitations of each format?Moreover, I'm interested in learning about the
Automated reply not threading for customer
Hi!We want to be able to send an auto reply to a customer. We also want this reply to be threaded for the customer. Using the standard automated reply ”Reply to requester” does not work by design. So we tried to do a webhook automation with the reply API. The problem with this is that for customer that uses Outlook Windows application the reply is not threaded with the original request. It seems that the problem lies with what email client the customer uses. In Gmail the reply threads with the original request. Is there a way to solve our problem?
Agent emails for ticket assignments not working correctly
Hello! My team is having an ongoing issue with agents not receiving some ticket assignment emails. The option is configured in the settings and most do get sent, but not all. This has left us in a tricky place as those tickets don’t get addressed in a timely manner due to the agent not being aware of something to take care of until they have to login to the system for another task. Everyone in the chain then gets frustrated by the problem, from the agent to the customer to myself as the admin. I’ve looked into it but there isn’t anything I can do another than confirm from the email box that there are no “Ticket Assigned” emails for the tickets in question when they get brought to my attention. This happens over multiple email ingest accounts, multiple agents on different teams, and from both new tickets that get auto assigned as well as manual assignments from other agents. Is there anything that can be done about this? Thanks.
Create a ticket from an email. From and cc can't point to Freshdesk?
We’ve been emailing invoices to our customers with a from address of our accounting team, and a cc address of our accounting team for the past 10 years. Reason being we want the accounting team to get a copy of the invoice as well as to receive any response from our customers. To: firstname.lastname@example.orgCC: email@example.comFrom: firstname.lastname@example.org We decided it would be better if our accounting team started to use Freshdesk so we change their email address to route to Freshdesk, but our email invoices didn’t create a case. Freshdesk support told us it’s because having the to address(actually it’s cc) and from address the same that it would create a loop so they detect and block case creation.... The explanation seems illogical, but regardless we can’t change how Freshdesk works… Is there a way to accomplish what we want(create a case for invoices emailed to customers, and if the customer responds the response routes to the Freshdesk case) via sending an email or are we forced to use their A

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.

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?

Ticket Field Management for Agents
Hello FD Community,I am a long time Zendesk user that is making the transition to FD and find I am struggling on a couple of things. The biggest being custom ticket fields and the management of when an agent sees them and when they are required to fill them out. In Zendesk, you could have ticket fields that were only visible based on the form the ticket was using. Any fields that were not on the form, were not visible to the agent even if they were required on a different form. Has anyone figured out how to do that in FD? If so, please share your wisdom with me. Either I am just struggling to wrap my head around something or I am missing it all together. Thanks in advance.
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!
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.
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?
