Hello Freshservice Ninjas!

INTRODUCTION:

How fabulous it has been to see so many of you share your Freshservice expertise with the rest of the community, engaging and encouraging your peers and unlocking the exclusive Ninja badge.

If you thought it ends there, well, it does not. 😄

😍 We’ve got something exclusive JUST FOR YOU! 😍

Inviting you to our very first Freshservice Ninja Meet-up, an opportunity for all of us (Ninjas and the Freshservice team) to come together, know each other and learn from one another.

This is an invite-only event for our Freshservice Ninjas (those who participated in the Freshservice Ninja Challenge).

Share with us what you’d like to see, and discuss with our Freshservice team and other Ninjas, so that we can ensure we plan the agenda to suit your needs and time.

 

Tagging all our amazing Ninjas here:

@keefe.andrews @zachary.king @Stratto @ggallaway @patricksawyer @ekrasner @adityatawade

Finally making it around to share our “known issues list” process. We use problems within FreshService to track both outages as well as on going issues that require more involved fixes. We wanted to develop a process that allows our employees to easily let us know that they are experiencing a particular issue which provides the team responsible for problem resolution with more examples and additional staff that they can reach out to for more information. The process that we are using relies on a number of different technologies within our environment, however, this same solution could be developed in a number of different ways.

First we added a checkbox and a new text field to the “problem” form. As shown:
 

Since we are ‘publishing’ the known issues list to SharePoint we keep track of the ID of the item in the SharePoint list to make updates easier (for example, we want to hide the item if the ‘add to public known issues list’ is unchecked.

We then execute the following workflow within FreshService whenever a problem is reported or updated

The web services call in the third box executes a routine in our RPA platform which copies some properties from the problem to the SharePoint list, which ensures that they are always in sync.

Within SharePoint the list then looks like the following:
 

The link under “Registration Link” is a customized link with query string parameters which pass the FreshService problem ID and problem title to a form within sharepoint which looks like the image below:

The user then fills out this form which, upon submission, will create a new incident that is associated with the specific problem in FreshService. We append the users email address to the end of the title which is used for the subject of the created incident request so that the techs can quickly see the users who have experienced the issue by looking at the associated incidents in the problem.

We specifically worked this using ‘low code/no code’ processes, however, if you wanted to develop a website that pulled the data directly from FreshService that could make this simpler. It would be great if FS was able to provide this type of functionality “out of the box” and have the known issues list linked from the end user portal.

Feel free to ask any questions you have :)

@rashmi.nag Thank you so much for recording this session. It was extremely insightful. I was hoping we could continue the conversation in this thread. 

I think it was @ggallaway (couldn’t see names on the recording) who mentioned how they were building a “Known Problems List”. This sounded amazing and was hoping to gain some further insight on how you have implemented this functionality.

Also, just to drop a few things that I would have loved to contribute in the meeting… @daniel.soderlund I have implemented Employee Onboarding recently so if you have any additional questions please don’t hesitate to ask, would love to share our triumphs and struggles with you to help you in your quest for EOB in freshservice. Secondly, can’t wait for “Time Based Automations”, this will be game changing for us. Thirdly, @keefe.andrews I also have been on the bad end of an endless loop with supervisor rules and WFAs 🤣. Lastly, I love all the initiatives to grow this community and add the ability for us all to engage in different ways, as we continue to support each other across the globe. 

Thanks again!!! Take care ✌

I’ve tried several times to log in and it won’t give me a unique link.  I’m not able to join.  :( 

Please let me know if there is a recorded session I can review later.  Thank you. 

 

Hi @zebb.s and @zachary.king - We’re sorry that you couldn’t join us today! We’ve shared your feedback with the Bevy team and we’ll hopefully try to get some support for you for our upcoming events.

We have a recording of the session and we’ll be posting it here by early next week. I’d request the other attendees to also share some snippets of the conversation here for Zebb and Zach!

Have to admit I was bummed I wasn’t able to participate. But I am sure it was enlightening nonetheless and look forward to hearing how it went!

Yay! Really excited to have you join us! Hope you take back lots of interesting insights! :)

I’m still a Freshservice novice admin (okay, maybe intermediate) and am looking to gain more knowledge.  I’m excited to be a fly on the wall.  :)

Hey @zachary.king. We’ll be meeting virtually on Bevy (our new events tool) which will be very similar to Zoom. I shall be sharing a guide on how you can use Bevy, a day before our meet-up. Hope that helps :)

Perfect, thank you!

I think it would be great to hear what each ninja considers their biggest accomplishment using the platform this year, and what projects and approaches they are working on over the next few weeks/months.
