    @Othman: Please see the other post with all the details on the code here: http://feedback.repairshopr.com/forums/165658-general/suggestions/6989005

    We’re really needing a solution to the caller ID private ticket updates that are posting to the “oldest open ticket” in customer’s accounts. It’s really throwing us off when looking at tickets and not seeing our outbound/inbound call logs right inside of the ticket, all because there is a second (or multiple) older tickets still open.

    I think my logic is pretty reasonable in that an incoming/outgoing call is relevant to any and all open tickets. If they have more than one ticket open, there’s an almost definite chance that we’re talking about more than just the one ticket when on the phone with the customer. As such, it would be extremely helpful to see the CID private ticket comment on every ticket to help paint the picture of that ticket’s communication timeline.

    Could you please push private ticket update comments to all open tickets? It’s such a great feature, and makes auditing/training/procedures so much smoother. I’m always trying to come up with ideas that will positively affect all users, and this would certainly be an upgrade for everyone using the inbound CID lookup feature, not to mention the CID outbound query code I am using.

    More importantly, can we get a way to trigger a ticket to be created from a template, and assigned to the location that the invoice is created for? We need something better for our team to see than the direct message the admin gets.

    Also, can we have additional columns added to the /schedules/ page for:
    Date Created, Created By (Tech)

    @RS: Can we get this approved/planned yet?

    Ryan (CTO, Pinellas Computers) commented  · 

    I spoke with Jacob this morning about this and thought I already posted something similar to this (but couldn't find it). My related idea was to add the "draft" option, which already exists in estimates, to invoices also. That way when a tech is "building" a big invoice, it won't show in the customer portal until it's complete. This would also prevent techs from constantly forgetting to 'finalize' invoices. By default, invoices will remain 'finalized and visible on the customer portal', but with the click of a button, they'd be marked as drafts and hidden from the customer. Pretty simple, especially since it already works in estimates :)

    Just for clarification, we have multi-location inventory but this suggestion is to make it more granular “per-location” to have different settings per locations as far as what’s tracked/etc.

    Ryan (CTO, Pinellas Computers) commented  · 

    @Becca: Jason is correct. Also, ask RS to switch that location to non-inventory - they can do that!

    Agreed x100000. We also are closed on Sundays and close early on Saturdays. We'd like to make our SLAs be 1, 4 and 6 hours - but this isn't possible since RS doesn't know when we "close" and "reopen". Right now we use 24 and 48 hour SLAs, but even still, on Monday EVERYTHING is red on our dashboards. We need this really bad in order to provide more seamless and effective response times to customers! HELP RS!

    I hate to say this, but this sounds a bit unreasonable.

    This can be accomplished with Ticket Automatons.

    Just starting to play around with ticket automations (great future!) and I'm wondering if there's a trigger I can't seem to find. We'd like to override the time settings for "stale" tickets on our ticket dashboard. Is there a way we can trigger to change the color of the ticket "blocks" on our dashboard, without modifying the status of the ticket? (We don't want to add more unnecessary statuses just to assign them a different color.)

    Basically, we'd like to make it so that tickets marked as "invoiced" for more than seven days automatically:
    1. Email a reminder response to the customer.
    2. Change the color of the ticket "block" to red, so that we see it on our dashboard and reach out to them with a phone call.

    We have these time conditions set up in the ticket dashboard settings, where it should turn red after 168 hours; but for some reason it doesn't appear to be working? If this is possible, we'd actually prefer to set up ALL timer rules for the dashboard using ticket automations, instead of the limited time conditions in the ticket dashboard settings.

    Maybe this could be done just by adding an "action" to take it automations called "change ticket dashboard color". Then maybe just an option in the dashboard settings of "do not enforce any time triggers" to override the dashboard controls with ticket automations.

    Thanks!

    I think this is already integrated?

    I disagree :( Too many options on a page gets confusing. You shouldn't be able to edit Tickets from a Customer screen, edit Estimates from an Invoice, or edit Invoices from a Customer screen. It should remain as "edit parts of what you're looking at" not parts related to what you're looking at.

    I'm all for more features and shortcuts, but I think uniformity and simplicity are hugely important, too.

    Hi Greg!

    I think this idea would be solved by implementing this previous forum post:
    http://feedback.repairshopr.com/forums/165658-general/suggestions/7182891

    WYSIWYG will keep all paragraph formatting, along with a ton of other features. Please consider moving your votes to this post and mention your specific requests on that post to get it in-progress sooner :)

    There is also no linked record of the payment payout of Customer Purchases in the /payments list. Payments to and from customers should show on the Customer Detail page :)

    @Andre: You can use "Payments - Clear/Unapply" for this (see Admin>Security Groups). After you clear a payment from an invoice, you can edit the invoice line items, and then re-apply the same payment without refunding or deleting it. You can see the option to clear payments when you click on the date next to the payment on invoices.

    Any update on this idea? We're updating our inventory counts and all locations have a "low stock" alert because of our locations that don't carry inventory. Also, another option would be to allow us to set default stock/reorder quantities.
