You can now better adjust the new Ticket creation process to your business requirements.
System administrators can now select which fields are mandatory when new tickets are being added. You can configure this feature by visiting Tools > Options > Tickets (Admin) tab.
Web Interface Enhancements
- Default module – Select your prefered module and have it automatically opened as you sign in.Using mostly Sales Opportunities? Set the Opportunities module as your default Web module.

To configure the default module simply visit your personal settings under Tools > Options > Web Interface – 1 tab.
- Ticket Recipients – When using the Web portal in order to send replies to customers (e.g. email replies for tickets) you can now see the list of all Ticket Recipients (External and Internal) directly in the window you use for replying.
Email Connector – Enhancement
Automatic email responses: When the customer sends in an email that is automatically converted into a new Ticket, the customer receives an auto-response email telling them about the newly created ticket, etc.
Auto response emails are now sent to all recipients, including Default Recipients set for the customer Account. This way everyone that should know about this newly created ticket, will be notified. They can also reply to the email and join the conversation.
