What’s New?

New Comments Tab for Incidents, Problems, Changes, and Releases (Labs)

  • Technicians can now view all comments in a discussion using the new Comments tab for incidents, problems, changes, and releases. This consolidation of all comments to one single tab provides easier access and better readability when technicians view a discussion.

  • To use this new Labs feature, technicians can click the Comments tab to view comments for an existing discussion. Here, they can add, edit, or hide a comment from a customer. Technicians can also customize the order of the existing comments in a discussion  (i.e., most recent, earliest first) by clicking the Arrow Icon in the Order By menu.
    • Note: Administrators must first enable this feature by going to Configure > Account-Wide Settings > Labs and enabling the check box for “Enable the comments tab on records.”

OrderByDefault Values for New Accounts

  • When new users create a Service Desk account and log in, the “Getting Started” setup wizard will now pre-populate the account and customer portal names for the technician.  New users can choose to accept the default values as-is to begin using Service Desk right away, or override the default values at any time for added customization.  These values are created as follows:
    • Account name – Inherited from the main account, or default to “ServiceDesk” if no changes are made.
    • Customer portal name – Randomly generated from our system.
