Sodium-New feature-Helpdesk!



  • Youtube Video

    Good morning ML,

    So this is why I have been slightly more quiet over the past few days, I've been working on our helpdesk feature! Along with this announcement video, I just wanted to make mention of a few bugs that do come with this release that I'm actually working on fixing right now (and will be deployed in the morning).

    1. Notes:
      Notes contains a few bugs, reason being is this was not the main focus right off the bat as there is no external portal so this is only so useful so far.
    • Yes notes do work however I'm not happy with the entry process, right now entry occurs on an "enter" key stroke. I don't like this and it won't work for long docs etc so I'm going to be changing this.
    • container for the notes does not have an overflow property yet so the container breaks upon too many notes being entered /facepalm
    1. Last modified: doesn't reflect last modified obviously. Will be fixed in the morning release.

    2. You can sort by column (except ticket type which will likely not be fixed immediately in the morning but probably a release tomorrow at some point)

    Permissions:

    • Edit tickets will allow a member of an account group to ....edit tickets....
    • If a user does not have this permission, they will only be able to designate time worked on the ticket.
    • If a user is not the "admin" account (original account) without the New Tickets permission they will obviously not be able to create a ticket either.

    As per always, thanks for all of the insight on bugs and what changes you would like to see :)

    Just wanted to make an update post really quick with bug fixes that released this AM:

    -Notes now enter via a entry button element, no longer via a keypress
    -Notes also how handle overflow properly and will scroll upon more being entered
    -last modified now reflects the last update time properly.

    -Haven't fixed the sort by column for ticket type yet.



  • Really excited about this release. It's very basic at this point and obviously just a technical preview. But this is the first nearly useful functionality of the system and we are super excited to see people start using it very soon. A few more steps before it is ready for people to actually dive into and start using as ticketing, even emails don't work at this point, but you can see sample tickets and get a feel for how it will work. We are really looking for feedback here, what are we missing, what should it do differently?



  • I'm assuming we can't submit a ticket yet?

    Why do you say that? I've seen @scottalanmiller successfully submit a ticket as well as I have. Are you having an issue or error?
