I threw this out as a ticket, but wanted to see if anyone has asked similar questions, get more thoughts. Thanks!I need to know precisely what events start and stop the clock used to calculate the "AVERAGE FIRST RESPONSE TIME (IN HRS)" metric.For example, the "Group at a glance" report includes the metric "AVERAGE FIRST RESPONSE TIME (IN HRS)."I need to know, exactly and specifically, which events trigger that timer and end it. I could assume that the response time is calculated by the difference in the ticket's creation time until the first response is made.However - I don't know if the system is smart enough to account for business hours.For example: Our business hours are 830am-530pm EST.If a ticket is created at 0001, and responded to at 0832, is that a 1 minute response time, because the system is accounting for business hours? OR - is that an 8 hour and 31 minute response time, because business hours are not accounted for?Also - Does the first response clock stop when:a reply is
We are looking for a way to manage tickets that come in after hours or weekends.I wanted to see what others are doing to notify on call staff of tickets.One of my requirements is that it does not alert everyone, just the on call team, and that the alert is only generated off hours. I.E - I don't want to get an alert every time a ticket is created M-F between 8am -6pm.
Hello All; I have installed the Wordpress plugin and I am working on creating my support site for my clients. My question is; how do some people (like ElegantTheme) for example integrate their forums within their website? Can someone point me to how this is accomplished. I am pretty technically inclined; but I do not want to reinvent the wheel. If anyone has suggestions or how to start on this path, please let me know.Thanks,Tamer
Howdy, I'm the Customer Service sergeant on the ground for a medium-sized software company and I had some questions about freshdesk functionality; I'm going to describe what I'd like to set up and then if you guys know if it's possible or not you could save me from leading myself down a primrose path towards a solution that doesn't exist.I'm setting up a user feedback system that sends a web-filled comment to our freshdesk account via an aliased-email with a predefined Subject Line.What I'd like to know is if it's possible to perform certain actions withing fresdesk automatically when a ticket comes in from a certain email and/or with a certain Subject Line ie. Assign it to a "feedback" account, put certain tags on it and set it's priority and status. That way we can just aggregate all the feedback instead of having a helpdesk tech have to do "inprocessing" for each by hand.Thanks in advanced, (and let me know if this is in the wrong subforum)-WG
I have the following use case and i am wondering if it is possible today:Customer generates a ticket, they set a custom field to: Problem Type: 1 - Severe.Internally, i have another field that set's which tier/group should handle this ticket on creation. I want to be able to say things like: if ProblemType IS 1-Critical, set Tier to Tier2else set Tier to Tier1So a simple if/else structure. The second part of my question is - can i do if/elseif/else structures? Like the following:If field1 = X set fields1, fields2else if field1 = Y set fields1, fields3else if field1 = Z set fields2, fields3else set fields1, fields2, fields3Are either of these two use cases possible WITHOUT creating multiple rules?

Hi,I am considering my options regarding starting a service desk and I would like to ask how you differentiate from your competition.Another question I would like to get answered is related to your support. Do you offer 24/7 support, or 24h support on business days?Thank you in advance.Best regards,Harry
Hey guys,We have been using Freshservice for a while now and everything is great. Just a small (actually HUGE) detail... We have this client, and everytime she replies to any ticket, a NEW ticket is opened. This has caused us to have to merge tickets everytime she replies (and she is one of those stubborn clients). This is becoming taxing and we urgently need a way to solve this. Is this a configuration issue on our side?This is the only detail stopping us from a full go live.Thanks,Alejandro Olryd
A user has send an email to our helpdesk.This email is converted into ticket [INC-20557].The user recieves an email telling him about this ticket.The user forwards this email to the email address of one of our agents.The agent sends a reply to this user with our helpdesk in CC. The subject at that time is 'RE: [INC-20557] FW: laptop/phone/kaartjes'.This reply has created a new ticket with the agent being the requester. The agent received an email with the subject '[INC-20617] RE: [INC-20557] FW: laptop/phone/kaartjes'. Sounds like a bug to me...
Hi,What is the difference between added a new topic in a forum and submitting a new support ticket?When should one use which?Also, is there is difference in the functionality of tickets and forum topics? For example a ticket has an assigned agent, a ticket can be pending, etc... I assume all this does not apply to a forum topic or am I missing something?Thanks,Sarah
Hello, new to Freshdesk, but loving it.Just now I forwarded an email (from a supplier) from my Gmail account to my Freshservice desk. Freshservice went ahead and created an account for the supplier and emailed them to tell them to log in and a set their account up etc.What can I do so accounts aren't setup automatically and emails aren't sent? This is quite embarrassing.Also, it os possible to email Groups? I'm moving my work service requests from Gmail and into Freshservice, it would be great if I could just forward, for example, emails from Client A straight to a Group or an Agent.Thanks.
HelloWe have a first line of support and other teams as the below - Helpdesk : 1st line of support- System Admin , Voice & Network teams are higher tiers We here as Helpdesk must be the team who closing the issue/request with the requesters.But yet our reports being inaccurate as we assign the ticket to another group then when System admin as example complete their part it's being assigned to helpdesk again.Is there anyway to submit another ticket depending on this ticket to another tiers ?
