How do people organise Loaner items?
Hi all,Wondering how people organise the tickets/service requests for loan items that you manage? Given that the ticket status and loan item Stage status don't appear to have any interaction, we have needed to use additional custom Status settings for "Awaiting Loan" and "On Loan", to avoid having multiple upcoming requests cluttering the open status tickets lists, but still have to change the Stage of the loan on top of this. Anyone have suggestions on improving this workflow?Craig.
Ticket Properties - Category - Sub-Categories
Under the sprout plan, is there a way that I can add selection values to the Category - Sub-Categories section of a ticket properties?I've searched around on the Solutions and Forums as well as in the Admin panel and I'm not seeing any area where I can modify the Sub-Category of Software from the default selections of : MS Office, Adobe Reader, Windows & Chrome.
Support Team Publishing Unconfirmed Changes
There have been several instances in the past week alone, where the Freshservice Support Team have agreed to make some code customizations to our Portal. Yet when the changes are implemented, I find that our Portal is completely missing some functions and features... This is completely unnacceptable. I understand that sometimes code doesn't work and can be troublesome to get it right, however what I fail to grasp is the lack of quality control on a LIVE user's instance. It seems as if no one is confirming the work before 'resolving' the issue. Very frustrating. Anyone else experience this as well?
Tickets VS others tasks (projects?)
Hi everyone, I'd like to know if you have tips on how to separate/manage tickets created in Freshservice (free plan) VS other tasks, such as "Study Server 2016" and "Create a new AD domain". I'm using Todoist right now and just installed Freshservice. I'm in the process of configuring it before asking my users to send me request that way. Thank you!
Insecure URL links - able to re-use login hash
Hi, We use SSO internally for our Freshservice platform. I've noticed that its extremely easy to log into someone else's account if you have the hash but putting it at the end of the URL, for example "&hash=8c4ceaa5ba06561b2cf5ac66f88d7d49" (this is not a legitimate hash). There are no controls on how this hash can be used so I can litterally walk up to another machine and use that hash to log in as an agent. Surely this hash should be stored and processed more securely?
Forwarding email from agent mailbox to support mailbox
Dear all, As discribed here: https://support.freshservice.com/support/discussions/topics/304051 ... agents should be able to forward messages directed at their personal adresses to the support address while preserving the original sender's address. In this discussion is stated that it isn't working when using Outlook, because Outlook supposedly is stripping the originating mailaddress form the headers. Outlook isn't, it preserves the originating mailaddress. I could send you some screenshots, but will not post them here for privacy reasons. I would like very much this feature to work, because users will keep sending to agent's addresses, how many times you ask them not to (as do others, because this question is popping up every once and a while in the forums). By my own experience, this feature is a working feature within Zendesk, so technically it should be possible. Kind regards, Marco Visser
Convert requester to an agent fails
Hello, When I select an existing requester and click on the option "Convert to an Agent -> Full-time Agent" the page refreshes but the user is not converted. I've tried this with the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome on MacOS 10.13.3 (17D47). Thank you, Carlos Gamito
Replying emails not going though
I currently have an exchange user setup as email@example.com which forwards into the freshservice address and tickets are created fine. However, when replying to those tickets, the emails are never received. We've changed the SPF record with our hosting provider, checked our email filters and SPAM folders, but no sign of the email replies to tickets. Is there any way for you guys to tell if the emails are getting a rejection message?
Knowledgebase embedded pictures scaled too much
Hi, this is more of an issue rather than a feature request, simply because it's inconsistent for admins and end users. If you embed a fairly large picture, for example a screenshot into a knowledgebase article, the picture get scaled so much it's unreadable on the portal for end users. The picture appears fine on servicedesk for the admin who embeds it. Either the picture needs to be full resolution, or they need to be clickable where it expands to a less scaled or full resolution version of the image.
Bringning back deleted assets
Hi. I have a similar situation to this discussion. So, I understand that for the agent to recreate the asset it is necessary to permanently delete it. It is not enough to send it to the trash. My question is ...... how a can permanently delete the assets?, I cant see the trash location.
Customer with own IT (Tickets/Solutions)
Dear Freshservice-UsersActual situation:We have an actual customer with one "manager",who sees all the tickets of his company.We do have a bunch of solutiuons, all of them can be viewed only as an "agent".Problem:We'are facing an actual request from this customer: He needs to manage his own tickets incl. assignment to his own 2 it-employees and us (so we add him and his 2 it-employees as agents, with the restriction to his company for the tickets). Now he see all our solutions, this is not what we want.Questions:a) is there a way to manage tickets/solutions (assignment, closing, etc) without the agent-role?b) is there a way to restrict the access to solutions? based on group/company-role as an agent?Thanks in advance and best regardsRalph
Feature-Request-Process with Freshservice
Hi, I like to use Freshservice for my Business-Users to raise Feature-Request (Application RFC / Additional Column in Report etc.) but even after hours of research and different workarround-solutions i did not find a satisfying one. What i imagine In Helpdesk-Portal the User has a custom-form to raise this request, gathering all the necessary information - the only way i found is Service-Request BUT, form Service-Request i cannot automatically create a CR. Additionally there is no way to Close SR automatically close when the manually created and attached CR is closed. I tried Webhooks but even there no satisfying solution. Does someone have a good idea or have implemented a solution/process to support this process - appreciate your help and input dave

Auto Expand 'Notes' when Loading Changes
When opening a Change record, can the 'notes' section be set to auto-expand using a FreshPlug? We often use this section to add additional/progression info to a change that is easily missed by supervisors when reviewing changes. Advice would be appreciated! Thanks
Change module seems buggy
To me it seems like the Change module should get some attention. We use this module a lot, but I see the following problems with it: You can edit a change after approval Thats right, if an agent creates a change and the CAB board approves it, the agent can edit the change and the CAB board will not be informed or have to approve the edit - the change remains approved Changes stay open after approval If I filter changes on Approved and Open right now in our solution, I get 210 changes. These changes should be status=Closed and I cannot bulk change these - this is only possible with tickets. These are major issues for us.
Ticket Status and Title Carried Over When Splitting Tickets
Seems that the Status and Title of the original ticket is carried over into the new ticket. That's a bug. You would expect that splitting a response into a new ticket, would allow you to edit the title before actually creating the ticket and set the status as open by default.
