Been playing around with the online demo of this and have been quite impressed, especially for the price point you're selling at. One thing that interests me is the custom fields. Is there a way a custom field could be defined as either a drop-down list or a radio button? The main reason I ask is that our current (elderly, homemade, abandonware) Ticketing system has a drop down list of locations, and also request sub-type (Software, Hardware, etc). Is the ability to define custom fields in that way something that's in the pipeline or easily doable? Or even a way to tie the location into the Asset tracking side?
Many thanks in advance, definitely interested in this product but obviously want to see if some of the existing features we're used to can be replicated in your system.
The ability to extend the custom fileds to drop-downs, radio buttons, checkboxes etc is a feature for v2.4 and is part of that roadmap. This will apply to both the support request and asset manager custom fields.
Currently support custom fields are linked to support queues and upon selecting a support queue the additional fields are displayed, with the asset manager the asset type triggers the custom fields. In each case the you can have an unlimited number of custom fields linked.
From v2.4 you will be able to link the asset to a support request allowing for previous asset histories and vice versa making a much more powerful tool alround.
Hope this helps, shout if you need any more info.
Has anyone applied the update and resolved the queue email problem? I now have the extra fields for the extra addresses, but the queue addresses ( we are not polling ) are still not getting notifications of new tickets.
Have you tested you outgoing SMTP settings? This can be done by going to Home -> Email Setup -> SMTP Settings -> Test
If your SMTP is OK you then need to check your From and Group email addresses linked to the support queues.
The from email address is where the email is sent back to if a user replies to an email generated by OPSD if you are not email polling then this should be a distribution group for the staff that handle that support queue.
The group email address is a distribution group for staff that look after that queue and any support emails generated by OPSD this group will be CC'd on.
The caveat to this is Exchange 2010 (and possibly Exchange 2007 too) where the email address/user account used to send email out, under your SMTP settings, MUST have send as rights on the from email address if these are different. If you are email polling then this will be the case and emails will not be sent and excahnge will simply delay and the drop the emails generated.
Shout me if you want to do a remote session so we can take a look at your settings.
We've recently purchased OP SmartDesk from yourselves and are having a few teething issues with setting it up. When trying to add any Asset Sites, Locations, Suppliers, Manufacturers or Custom Fields; there doesn't appear to be any way to actually input any information. We're just greeted by a short introduction as to what each section is and/or will be used for.
The same is also occurring with the Print Manager section too.
Looking at previous patch notes they suggests these features are in fact operational but the pages we are viewing suggest they are not finished. Any ideas?
Something isn't showing correctly for you. It should look like this. Those areas are definately finished.
