New release: ticket improvements and modules updates

Time for HostBill weekly release! New in: ticketing system improvements and a number for updates to our modules!

Ticket views improvements and Escalations support

HostBill gives you the opportunity to create various support departments with different permission levels to enhance merchant-client communication. This feature helps to better organize staff and the communication with clients. The departments can be divided according to their functions, such as Support department, Billing department, etc. Each Ticket Department can have its own set of SLA/Escalation Rules – various policies to act on tickets. It can be used for example to escalate unresponded ticket to a higher priority, overdue unclosed ticket or ask to close tickets that are in unanswered state. We have now added support for tags for SLA/Escalations, so you can use filter through tags in department SLA triggers:

We have also added a special filter tag “untagged” to include tickets without tags in search result. When it comes to SLA we have also made a small change: now macro replies triggered by department SLA appears as System rather than Admin reply, to distinguish actions made automatically.

Each Ticket Department can have different listing in ticket section. Reason behind this feature is that if you support different range of product and services then you should have system to support different range of customer support. Custom Ticket View section allows you to select which tickets should be listed and how you want them to be presented to you. New columns for ticket view include ‘Type’ and ‘Number – subject’.

Last but not least, new functionality for Tickets enables to encrypt ticket main message contents (until now this option was only available for ticket replies). This is possible for both, tickets opened by clients and by admins.
