    Helpdesk software (yes, another, sorry)

    I have been searching around on here and internetz and I can't quite find what I am after.

    Does anyone use or know of some software that will do the following

    Email support and the user when job is created, updated etc.
    AD integration
    Allow support to allocate a job to a user, if they email us we can convert it to a ticket for that user
    Allow us to create our own categories, (MIS, printers, software etc) and allocate a job to one of those
    Create reports based on these categories
    Assign jobs to IT staff

    Any thoughts?

    TIA

    Connectwise I think does all that, Sysaid does though.

    We use WebHelpDesk. Simple, cheap, effective. With your "email in ticket" issue, there is no work required on your part...they email in, and the ticket is automatically created for you and them. It is such an easy setup, and you can get a completely free trial for the software, so you can test it and see how it operates

    We use WebHelpDesk too. It's very good. Tried a number of others before settling on it.

    Spiceworks here too, good on inventory side of things as well, I log all my jobs on the desk as a means of keeping on top of the workload, recently though its starting to update itself faster and more frequently than Adobe Flash Player, which I didn't think possible

    Kayako will do most, if not all of that.

    Thank you all for the suggestions. I have 'installed' Spiceworks again and played about with it. Can't see a reporting function though nor a way of adding different OUs for the AD integration, currently I only have teaching staff added.

    Freshdesk may be what you're looking for (Freshdesk Feature Comparison | Must-haves for a best-in-class help desk solution | See which freshdesk plan suits you best!) - unfortunately, it isn't free (well, the free version may not have advanced enough reporting [I don't use this help desk, I just know people who do!])
