Release Overview


Enhancements in the design of the agent portal 

We have redesigned the overall appearance of the agent portal. Further improvements are underway and will be made available in upcoming releases.  

Additionally, admins now have more options for customizing colors via the agent portal settings. A new "Theme Color" has been introduced, allowing you to customize the colors of all elements. Previously, only the sidebar color was supported.

Soon, we will extend this support to customize the color of elements for the customer portal app in an upcoming release.

Dark theme option in the agent portal

An option to choose a dark theme has been included in the agent portal. This new feature allows agents to switch to a dark theme via the profile menu. The feature is being enhanced and existing glitches will be addressed in our upcoming releases.


Additional configuration options in the worklog settings 

We have introduced additional configuration options to manage worklog settings. 

Admins now have the options to: 

  • Make it mandatory to add time spent when adding replies or notes. 

  • Make it mandatory to add description. 

  • Set the default worklog type as billable or non-billable. 

Enhanced control over  closed ticket actions 

We have added new settings for the 'Closed' ticket status which can be accessed via Ticket -> Fields -> Status -> Edit status.

Admins can set the following ticket actions to occur whenever an end user replies to a closed ticket either via email or the customer portal: 

  • Automatically transition the 'Closed' ticket status to 'Open'. 

  • Create a new follow-up ticket (The ticket fields will be non-editable in the customer portal) 

  • No changes should be made to the closed ticket. 

Support for IP restrictions in both the agent and customer portals 

An option has been added to implement IP-based restrictions. This enhanced security feature allows administrators to restrict access to the agent or customer portal based on specified IP addresses and ranges.

Edit the profiles of deactivated agents 

Previously, editing the profiles of deactivated agents was not supported. Now, we have added the option that allows administrators to edit profiles of agents that have been deactivated.

Additional fields in the advanced ticket filter
