What feedback do you wish your employer asked for from YOU?
We discussed on this board a while back how rare it seemed that exit interviews were for those in contact centers and other roles. When you leave a position or company, it makes sense to me that the employer should want to know why so they can work to retain top talent in the future.This got me thinking - what do you WISH your employer asked for feedback about? Your role? Your training? The way you use tools and technology? Here’s one question I love: What were the obstacles that prevented you from delivering a great customer experience? (I saw an organization that asked this question at the end of every shift, so before logging off the employee had to answer.) They learned SO much and were able to provide better support and tools.What do you say? What questions do you want to see asked of employees?
Onboarding Module creates two service requests
My organization is still new to FreshService, and we wanted to utilize the Onboarding module. In testing, I discovered that submitting an Onboarding request through the service portal creates two service requests. One is labeled “Employee Onboarding Request” and is the parent request to the other service request which is labeled as “New Hire Onboarding” (which is using the new hire onboarding kit I created): Listed Service RequestsI also noticed that the parent “Employee Onboarding Request” does not have any Request details: Missing form detailsIs there a way to modify this form to include the new hire information or better yet, prevent this service request from being created at all?
Import asset not available for those who can create assets
Import asset not available for those who can create assets. This access is not intuitive to add the ability to import assets in bulk, when the role allows to add assets one by one. What access provides the ability to import in bulk? Current access attached.

Differences between Service Catalog and Product Catalog
New user here. Trying to figure out the process that works from the time an item is requested, through ordering,receiving, into inventory, assigned to a user. A bit confused between the differences between the “Service Catalog” and “Product Catalog”. Not sure where I should be entering my items into and what the differences between these are.
New properties for fields
Custom field properties As of now when we add custom fields to the forms, we get the below properties. In addition to this, it would be great to have additional properties likeHide when <<condition>> Required when <<condition>> This will provide more functionality to the usability of the custom fields. If we extend this to the code/ootb fields, that will be an added advantage. ThanksVijay
Creating a Private Note with Attachment Using the API
How does one create a private note with an attachment using the API?The ‘private’ value must be a boolean or the API returns a 400 response. Attachment uploads should be multipart form data which will stringify the value. I noticed that all notes with attachments are being created as private notes even without the ‘private’ value set, but I don’t want to rely on that because the API documentation says that ‘private’ should be set to true when creating a private noteThere are a few examples online for adding attachments to notes but none of them address the ‘private’ flag, e.g. https://github.com/freshworks/fresh-samples/tree/master/PHPThanks

Which ITSM capabilities does your organization want to improve most?
Having recently run an ITSM survey with AXELOS, it’s interesting to see how respondents feel about their capabilities across the commonly ITSM practices/processes. I’ll share the findings once published, but in the meantime - which ITSM capabilities does your organization want to improve most?Please let me know as a response :)
Filter assets when assigning them to a ticket or change
We are planning to maintain the inventory of our virtual machines in Asset Management. In order to be able to assign them to tickets and changes as needed. Now we have the situation, that we are recycling old names of already deleted VMs. So we could have the cause that there exist multiple assets with the same name, but only one asset has the Asset State “in use”. The other ones are indicated as “retired”.When assigning such an asset to a ticket/change all the assets are showing up in the list, independent if their state is “in use” or “retired” and I have not found a way to differentiate the objects.So therefore my question now: Is it possible to customize the columns in the Associate Assed menu, so it would at least be possible to see which on is the still in use asset. Or even better to configure a filter so that only assets with the “in use” state are displayed in the list?Kind regards,Matthias

8 Tips for Better Metrics + What Would Add?
No matter where in an organisation you work, there’s likely often debate around how performance metrics can be improved. The list below was crafted for IT service desks but is equally applicable to external customer support or other business functions:Use metrics for productive reasons, such as driving improvement - using them purely as a target to hit adds little to creating better business operations and outcomes Use only the metrics you need and report on only what’s needed - don’t overwhelm people with unnecessary metrics Align metrics with desired outcomes - move from what’s being done to what’s being achieved (by what’s being done) Understand the context of metrics and how different metrics are related - few metrics have little impact elsewhere, so ensure that you understand how improving in one area will affect another Look to trends for greater insight and inspiration - how performance changes over time is key to understanding what’s happening Understand the behavioural aspects
Why do we struggle to make knowledge management work?
Knowledge is a key element in service quality and improvement, to support shift left and reduce escalation and to improving customer experience. Yet we regularly see organisations struggle to make this work and fail to achieve the benefits that can be expected. Why is this? What experiences and learnings do you have - successes and failures - that can help to contribute to this discussion? Some suggestions:Do people not like to give up their knowledge (and ‘power’)? Is knowledge management just difficult to make work? is it tricky to get information into the right format for re-use? How do we keep knowledge up to date? Does this type of project just always get side-lined due to operational priorities? What are your thoughts and experiences?
So how are you using the ideas in ITIL4 to demonstrate service value?
ITIL4 is a major shift for the ITIL world. The focus is on value and how this is co-created, delivered and demonstrated. The context is wider business and organisational working and the key learning is around how to use the existing good knowledge and practices flexibly and appropriately. ITIL 4 is also aligned with agile and product management concepts and is a positive supporting tool in the journey towards convergence of ideas (eg OPS, agile, lean, ITSM, Devops). So, how are you using some of the new ways of working, like value streams, guiding principles, value co-creation..?
