Schedule tickets in Geedesk [New Feature]

Users in Geedesk can not schedule tickets. This means if you can now create a ticket in Geedesk at 10 am and it can be assigned to the right person at 7 pm.

This can be highly useful in scenarios where a guest at 10 am asks for some services to be delivered to his room in the evening at 5 pm. Instead of noting it down manually, employees can not schedule the ticket in Geedesk and Geedesk would automatically assign it to the right employee at 5pm.

Users can schedule tickets by clicking on the create ticket icon besides the search box in Geedesk.

Age Report in Geedesk [New Feature] [Updated]

geedesk report subscription

 

Last week we launched a feature called Ticket Age Report where in GMs and managers will receive a report with tickets that have not been resolved for more than 6 hours. This report includes all both the Open and On Hold tickets that have not been resolved for more than 6 hours.

This report has caused a lot of confusion as our users felt that they were receiving emails and this report should be kept optional. To avoid this confusion we had temporarily rolled back this new feature.

This week we are have launched the Ticket Age Report again. However like before users will not receive these reports by default. To receive these reports through email users should login into their Geedesk account and navigate to the Subscription option under the Reports menu in the sidebar.

This feature has been rolled out in Geedesk and is available to all administrators and managers in Geedesk. Admins can find this option under the admin menu in the side bar.

Admin Board in Geedesk [New Feature]

Admins need to work with a huge number of settings in Geedesk where in they have to turn on certain settings and turn off certain ones.

In a real world scenario this could be a cumbersome and might confuse the administrator on what settings he / she has enabled. To reduce the hassle of the administrators using Geedesk we have now introduced Admin Board in Geedesk.

Admin Board in Geedesk will display the summary of the settings that has been enabled by the administrator managing the account for any given property. This makes it easier for the administrator to keep track of the settings he / she has enabled in their accounts.

This feature has been rolled out in Geedesk and is available to all administrators in Geedesk. Admins can find this option under the admin menu in the side bar.
