We are extremely proud and happy to release a new Re:Desk version 2.0.1. The new version of the software is powered with new hot features, speed and architecture improvements. We jumped right to the version 2 to show that this is a major upgrade.
Firstly, let us say about new features we implemented to this version. One of the first of them is a language system that is now available in Re:Desk. It allows to translate the software on any language you need just by translating appropriate phrase variables in the special language files. The language selector is added to switch the languages:
If you have a passion to contribute any additional language or add-on to Re:Desk you are always welcome. Just contact us with any questions in case they arise.
Then the next feature is e-mail templates. Now you can edit all the email notifications that goes from Re:Desk right through the admin account of the software:
External email accounts
In this new version you are able to add external email accounts, the messages from which will be fetched by the help desk system. If any department is set for specified e-mail address, new tickets from this address will be attached directly to the selected department:
For instance, you have a Multi-vendor store and you need to set the help desk so that it will get the emails from each vendor, from each their email address. This feature will help you to realize this.
The section spam filters is now available in the Re:Desk settings. There you can specify the email addresses which you want to define as spam. The messages from these specified emails will not be shown on the tickets page.
We have dramatically improved our application performance. A number of SQL queries was decreased by 20 times, as an example, there are only 15 queries instead of 300 on tickets page.
Some features are implemented to general settings and now you can specify support staff time which will show the company local time for your clients and they will know if your support agents are online or offline:
Among the rest general settings improvements we can emphasize the following:
- Time zone setting
- Message saving in reply field
- Ticket closing behavior
- Email Subscriptions on tickets
- Ticket sharing feature
- Ticket receiving rulers and terms changed
All the changes we made are available for viewing in the change log.
