Technician Impacts

  • Tickets can be assigned or reassigned using the "Update" function 

  • When a user adds or removes an attachment or tag as its own action an entry will be added to the ticket feed. When the user adds or removes an attachment as part of another action that generates a feed entry, the attachment and tag changes will be included in the feed entry.

  • Reports will have an "Hour" display format. Reports with date/time values can now be formatted by time of day, along with existing Week, Month, and Year. This enables reporting based on when events are occurring. 

  • Reports can be shared with individuals as well as groups. Access this setting under Owner and Visibility within the Edit page of a Report Builder report, with the other sharing options. Individual people and groups can be selected in the same lookup field.

  • Improved charts and graphs, including in reports
