1 Replies and 1836 Views Template Attachments do not rename when used to instantiate a job  1836  1 Started by  Daniel G Not sure if this is a bug or feature or limitation of the templating ... but... When I add a file to a HD job as an attachment, it is automatically renamed after the job number.  Great. However if I add an attachment (in this case, a templated checklist in Excel format) to a template, and then create a job based on that template, what I had expected to happen was that the attachment too would be treated like a template, and renamed in line with how other attachments get renamed. Not so :...

0 Replies and 4106 Views Incoming email tags  4106  0 Started by  Menard Butac I&39;m trying to make use of the Incoming email tags in the Email template. What I observed though, is that the incoming email shows either the original message, or the 2nd to the latest email. We&39;re after preserving the latest email trail when replying to the customer. I might be using it wrong though so any input is greatly appreciated.

1 Replies and 3458 Views Email manager attachments  3458  1 Started by  ITMetro Hi I think I have an issue with email manager attachments. We are using HMP to liaise with an external contractor. Scenario: 1. A job with an attachment is emailed to the helpdesk via email manager. This is done by a staff member. 2. Email Manager logs the job, with the attachment, and sends a notification&160;email to the contractor - with the attachment (I use Job_JobAttachments_Attach>) - No problem. The attachment appears in the job. Cool. 3. The contractor responds to the email receiv...

There is one thing which I have just found that I&39;m not sure if it is by design or not. I have sync&39;d users from AD which had a title in the Job title Field in AD and the titles came across to the Job Title in HM no problems, however the problem only occurs if I blank out the Job Title in AD completely (IE nothing there) and then re-sync the user either automatically or manually, the job title doesn&39;t remove from HM...

5 Replies and 5255 Views Weird problem with email and Microsoft Sharepoint  5255  5 Started by  ZGeek Greetings All, I&160;have a strange problem. We have helpmaster up and running and auto logging emails without a problem. But I am setting up a M$ Sharepoint site and one if its functions is to send emails to our helpdesk email address with jobs to setup users. It does this without a problem. The problem is, the emails just sit in the inbox and it looks like helpmaster is ignoring these emails. It still logs all other emails correctly. I thought it was due to the addressing and the accoun...

1 Replies and 3055 Views Changing of Category  3055  1 Started by  Timo dlvw &160;In V9.1.7 I can rename currently in use Categories which is ok.&160; However it also allows me to delete a Category even though it is used in outstanding jobs. In previous versions it used to warn me that it could not be deleted until such a point that it was no longer linked to any job - I think this is the correct behaviour and in my view should be re-introduced&160;

1 Replies and 3130 Views Incorrect Total Action Time calculation  3130  1 Started by  Itro Hi there, this one's in v9.1.6 and quite a few versions prior. Correct me if I'm wrong, but If you sum the action time of all actions found in a job log, they don't add up to the total action time found on the 'Time and Expense' tab.&160; This is further bought out when you compare 'Action time Total' and&160;'Total&160;Action Time' on&160;the time and expense tab - one appears in the 'Time spent on this helpdesk job' and the other appears in the 'Expenses incurred on this helpdesk job' .&...
