HostBill 4.1.0 Preview: Ticket Views

Just a couple of hours left before new HostBill version release – we’d like to take a time and show you amazing new feature of upcoming update.

HostBill ticketing system is recognized as easy to use, despite being packed with dozens of useful features. With new version we’re adding new one to admin ticketing interface – Ticket Views. Now every admin will be able to define his custom ticket listing, select auto-search & ticket filter criteria, columns and column order displayed in view.
Each admin can define his private views (displayed only for him), or public (displayed for all support staff members).

Use cases:

  • Using mobile phone and want to catch up with your tickets on train? Define mobile view to display only your tickets and ticket subjects/status (you don’t need anything else on small smartphone screen) – one click away and you can see only what you need.
  • Using ticket tags & search terms to sort special groups of tickets – define view and have them one click away from you
  • Certain search term repeats? When entering new filter details you can store it as view with one click

BCrypt for Admin & Client passwords
HostBill now creates password using BCrypt. For non-geek readers: BCrypt is hashing algorithm based on Blowfish. How’s that different from older (considered as broken) hashing mechanisms? BCrypt keeps up with Moore Law which in short words mean that even in future with faster machines it will take roughly same amount of time (in years) to crack single password.
Q: Would my/client old password work?
A: Sure, once you will login after upgrade HostBill will automatically rehash your password with new method.
