Click 'Admin Panel' > 'Settings' > 'Alerts & Notices'

  •  Alert emails can be sent to users and staff after various events occur.  Example events include when a new ticket is created when a ticket is overdue, and when a new internal note is added.
     
  • Service Desk uses a system of ‘template sets’ to define the content of these alerts. Click ‘Admin Panel’ > ‘Emails’ > ‘Templates’ to manage your email templates.
     
  • Each set includes templates for a wide variety of alerts. Simply click the template name to edit its contents.
     
  • Templates can include dynamic variables like 'ticket number', 'assigned staff'. Click the ‘Supported variables’ link at the top-right of the editor to view the variables you can use.
     
    • See this wiki for help to create email template sets. 
       
  • This article explains how to enable alerts for different events and select recipients.
