Hey,I need some help with sorting out our software workflow, and I think we’ve stumbled upon a bug. Whenever a new software contract is created, we can add service items and cost details no problem, but it seems like Freshservice is only using the information from the top row. If I add an item with 1 unit, that 1 unit will show up in the related Software license list. If I then add another Item, and additional units, those do not get added to the software license list. In the first screenshot, it should translate to 1 license in the Software view, and the screenshot below should translate to 3 licenses in the software view - right? Unfortunately, it’s still only showing 1 license available. When we change the top row to 3 though, that data is sent and in the software license view we can see 3 licenses.I’m assuming this is a bug since it can obviously receive the number from the top row but not from additional rows. It also works to add separate contracts, but that’s a whole othe
I have several actions that are performed on a ticket from inside an app via api calls. this has lead to issues where the user has overridden data that has been set by the app because they either failed to reload the ticket or did not see the “Updates” icon Is there any way to refresh the ticket page when the user is finished in the app? current they finish by clicking a button in a model
We have deactivated agents but every agent we have ever had is still showing in the Agent drop-down on tickets. This is bothersome, we need to scroll to find the right agent every time. We only have 3 current agents and 7 deactivated. I can’t find a switch to hide them
We are just about to purchase some more FreshService licenses for our building Services team so they can track job.We use FS within the IT branch and have setup a specific request form for our purposes. The building services team will require different fields on the form. Is there a way that there are 2 request forms, that IT can use and building services can use?

Hello, I have a question regarding admin Privileges for Onboarding.Does the account used for “Create User” in Microsoft Active Directory via Orchestration really need Full Admin Privileges? The installation guide mention either Administrator or Remote Management Users but is there another way?https://support.freshservice.com/support/solutions/articles/50000003264-installation-guide-for-microsoft-on-premise-active-directory-orchestration-app“IMPORTANTThe login credentials used in the app configuration should be either of an Administrator or an user who has been added to the built-in group “Remote Management Users”.”
Hi all,I am a newbie with Freshservice Orchestration!We have recently setup the Active Directory Orchestration, and I d’like to start with unlocking users account:In below image you may see the first steps: Problem is that I do not uderstand how to het user detail:It seems that it needs one of the below parameter, but what to input inside the name field, in order to get Distinguished name? I may even skip this step and proceed directly to “Is user account locked”, but same question: which string of code I have to use? Thanks to anyone willing to share his experience!
Hi all!I’m wondering what others are doing in regards to Alerts in FreshService. We have done some basic email integration for alerts. I like the idea of not opening a ticket for every alert because we do not need to do so in many cases. However I would still like to get a notification when an alert comes in some other way because otherwise they just sit there. I realize this could also be a feature request but I wanted to see if anyone here had come up with another way to make alerts more effective.Thanks!Karli
I am attempting to Deploy the agent at scale using the Ivanti End Point Manager, similar to Microsoft SCCM. In order to do this, I’m scanning each computer to see if the agent is installed and then creating a self healing task to install as needed.Does any one know what the folder path would be if the agent is installed or registry key?Something like does the folder “c:\programfiles\crowdstrike” exist or does “HKLM\SOFTWARE|CROWDSTRIKE” exist?I can’t find any documentation or even poke around on my computer for something similar to see if it exists.Any help would be appreciated.
Hi All,This is not a question about the ServcieBot for Teams, I’m aware of it and it’s functionality. We already use it and it does what it does pretty well.What we’re looking to do is for each of our customers, create a Teams App that is basically a wrapper of the specific Client Portal that we have created for them. We can have a channel and add it as a Tab, but we would really prefer to have it as a top level App icon in the left side of their Teams app. We have SSO with Azure setup for each of our clients that we want to do this for so in theory the experiences should be pretty seamless, again that’s in theory.Before I go down this path and try out the Teams App Studio for the first time, has anyone else tried this with any success? Does it possibly exist in some form, somewhere that I just haven’t been able to find?Thanks in advance!
I want to create a service request type with approval process to obtain read only delegated access to an employees O365 email. I’m not able ot locate any specific App level integration that include a mailbox permission function. Has anyone used one or will i have to revert to powershell?
Hi everyone! I am trying to create a report regarding CSAT and would like to display some of the Short Text Reponse using a Tabular Data. I would like to know if there is a way I can remove the blank items “---” here? I can’t seem to find the Associated Survey Short Text Response option upon creating a filter. Thank you in advance!
I find myself actually spending a lot of time setting up my workflow to maximize efficiency. Which seems counter-intuitive initially but has allowed me to increase my productivity once it is in place. One area that I still struggle is the element of context switching, or bouncing back and forth between different software.So I’m curious...what suggestions does anyone have to improve this component of productivity and efficiency? Especially in the realm of utilizing Freshworks products and integrations.

IT folks across the globe, across industries and roles have had their ticketing portal buzzing, emails overflowing, people rushing up to them for quick fixes and so much more. In short, IT folks have endless requests coming their way from different directions. But do we exactly know how their day looks like and all that they do? It’s time to find out.Here’s a question for all the IT folks here in this community playing different roles - IT agent, administrator, manager, director, etc. in their respective workplaces - What does your day look like?Feel free to include How your day looks like? How you plan your day? How you navigate through executing your plan? What works for you? What does not work for you? What are the challenges you are facing in recent times? Well, who knows, each response can be similar and diverse in many different ways! Looking forward to reading them.
Recently, we’re exploring SaaS management as it offers the ability to monitor our usage, licenses, etc. but we run into an issue of duplicate entries when we deployed Discovery Agent as well. According to Freshworks, this is an expected behaviour but we felt it doesn’t make any sense. This creates unnecessary admin overhead considering that the solution offered is for us to monitor and delete them manually. We’re expecting that both features should work seamlessly and shouldn’t create unnecessary work. Did anyone here run into the same or similar problem? How did you solve it - while waiting for Freshworks to address this?
When creating the Service Catalog there is a way to customize how the email alerts are sent out. There are a nice selection of placeholders to choose from. Is there a way to have that information appear in the actual content of the email, and not just a subject line? As I am building out more in depth Service Catalog areas, some more description before getting to the ticket within FreshService would be helpful.
Hello, I would like to add a placeholder for all pending approvals as well as what I have below. What would I add to make that work. Main issue if we have one approval and then a pending if we add another approval the one we just added to approve does not see anything because its only the last approver at the moment. Thank you,
Could someone please explain to me when exactly the “These events can be performed by” setting for a Workflow Automator event takes effect?We tried to set up a workflow when a service request is raised. The workflow should be triggered only when an agent creates the request. Therefore, we have set the option “These events can be performed by Agent” > “Any”. When I now create a new service request as an agent user, the workflow is not triggered.When I change the setting to “These events can be performed by Requester” the workflow is triggered also for agent users.I have not found a convenient method to get the desired result with conditions.Kind regards,Matthias
I am trying to make a workflow that sends a approval request to our security team if someone selects security from the drop down. it is working if I assign it directly to the team but once I add in send approval request it stops. Are we not capable to send approval requests on non SR items?
