Click 'Admin Panel' > 'Settings' > 'Autoresponder'

  • An autoresponder is an email which is automatically sent to users immediately after certain events. For example, autoresponders are sent to users after they submit a ticket to confirm receipt of their request.
     
  • You can also send out autoresponders when staff create a new ticket, when a new reply is posted to a ticket, and when a user exceeds the maximum number of open tickets.
     
  • You can choose global autoresponder settings at 'Admin Panel' > 'Settings' > 'Autoresponder'.
     
  • You can also choose autoresponder settings for specific ticket categories, departments or email addresses. Category / department / email settings override the global setting.
  • You can view and edit the content of autoresponders at 'Admin Panel' > 'Emails' > 'Templates'.

This wiki explains how to configure autoresponders at the global level and the category/department/email level.
