Configure ticket notifications per Queue

In heterogenious environments it would be helpful if ticket notifications could be configured per queue (similar to escalations) instead of configuring them globally. Some teams are working email focussed others are not. Some teams like to receive an email for every update of a ticket others want as few emails as possible. Ideally there could be a default configuration for all and a dedicated configuration per queue ...more »

CHANGE TYPE OF NOTIFICATION STRUCTURE FOR BASE ORACLE

I suggest change the type of field TEXT on the table NOTIFICATION_EVENT_MESSAGE from VARCHAR2(4000 BYTE) to CLOB. Because is not possible send larger mails than 4000 bytes. This problem only affects OTRS that have ORACLE database in the MYSQL database the type of the column is type TEXT that is more large of VARCHAR2(4000 BYTE).

Alias for Agent From Field

If you want to sent a ticket to external partners they probably don't know who Helpdesk(OTRS@company.de) is for example.

So if you can choose another alias for the from field in the ViewCompose window that would be very helpful.

Thereby the Emailadress should not be touched only the alias/display name

For example (Peter Smith (otrs@company.de) instead of Helpdesk(otrs@company.de)

[Process Management] Email and templates

In workflows, I'd like to be able to send emails, following a predefined template (as the "Reply" dropdown does). This can be either: - via the Activity Dialog (e.g. special field "Email" similar to "Article"), where I could specify the template to use, and that will display the subject & body of email in the dialog. - or via a Transition Action, provided I can pass variables or expressions in the parameters. ...more »

Email Settings for Pending Reminder

I suggest you to add an additional email settings inside the agents preferences. In case an unlocked ticket does reach the pending time - a pending reminder is send to all agents registered for that (my) queue. Yes, right - usually the ticket should be locked by an agent, so that only this agent does receive the pending notification. Unfortunately sometimes agents unlock the ticket which will create a massive spam of ...more »

Block follow up emails on tickets closed x days before

We have allowed follow up emails for customers to reopen old tickets. Reopening a ticket closed just few days back is absolutely fine for use but sometimes it happens that customers reopen tickets closed several month back - this we would like to avoid.Therefore a setting in OTRS would be nice which disables follow up on tickets closed a configurable time back. For example 100 days. In such a case the email should result ...more »

Avoid double articles if email is addressed to 2 system adresses

Sometimes it happens that customer do send their requests to different known email addresses or adding another one in cc. This results in two single articles with same content within otrs - as both the email adresses are connected to OTRS. It is difficult to teach the customer not to cc another system address (due to their habits) - therefore it would be nice if OTRS can detect by itself if same email is received twice ...more »
