  1. Hi, we have users in the UK, Italy, Netherlands and Mauritus, so I have created individual conf.json that point at individual AD security folders. Depending on the country the user is added into the appropriate security group. Along side this I have created conf.json files relating to each country and want to edit the details to set the correct country, timezone and currency. I have been able to set the country but I'm struggling with what I should add for currency and timezone. I've tried the obvious like CET, UTC+1 or € but it doesn't work. Can you advise please? The screen shots are examples for users from the Netherlands. Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  2. Is it also possible to add a last update coloum? Thank you Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  3. Hi, is there a way to automatically close linked requests when closing the master call? e.g. all the calls linked to a known error request are closed when closing the KE. Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  4. Hi, is it possible to have an additional colomn options for request description within the Service Manager request view? I know you can hover over the request to view the summary and description but this always takes a second or two to load and it'd be quicker if you can just see the column like you can for summary. Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  5. Hi, our service desk would like to know if it is possible to copy and paste an attachement directly to the body of an email within a service manager request, instead of having to drag an attachment into the add field or browse to it. This would make adding attachment quicker and better for them to process requests. Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  6. Hi @James Ainsworth apologies but how do I even add that column? I can't see any options to show this. Sorry if I'm just being blind Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkisnon
  7. Hi James, Thanks for the reply. A key features that our IT analysts have asked for would be able to update an activity like you would a timeline of a SR or IN. At the moment you only have the option to add comments when closing the activity. It'd also be very handy if there was an option to spawn a new request from an activity, and I know this is available from BPM activities, but not the scheduled jobs. Also, can you advise on how it's possible to add a reference number please as I can't see this any where on our currently open activities. Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  8. Hi, are there any plans to update the scheduled jobs feature or allow for actually service requests to be scheduled like you can in Supportworks? He are often audited on certain tasks that our IT teams need to complete on a daily monthly or yearly basis, and the current version of Scheduled Jobs that creates simple activities just isn't fit for purpose. In the Supportworks there was a very good feature of being able to create a new incident or service request, and then save it as a scheduled job. Doing this gave the analyst an actual request with a reference number and a way to update the timeline with comments or attachments etc. This also made it very easy to quickly search for details within the request, which is not easy with activities in Service Manager. I'm very surprised you took this feature away when developing service manager as it was simple and effective. You've recently added new features to the BPM activities, and is there any reason why the scheduled job activities wasn't developed either? If the above isn't possible, would it be possible to add more features to the activities templates feature that allow you to edit the outcomes to be able to raise a new request? If you could then specify what details were in that new request it would make life a lot easier. Please can you advise if there is any planned work for this as I'm sure other companies would benefit from the updates to scheduled jobs and activities. Thank you Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  9. Hi @Victor/ @Aaron Summers, thanks for that, I didn't even think about the users details
  10. Hi, we've noticed it's quite messy trying to find out which assets belong to a user, as the infromation isn't shown in the co-workers details screen. If I search against the name smith and pick a user who I know has a laptop, their isn't an Assets tab like when I look at my own profile. If I search the Assets option against "smith" I can't easily see who the assets belong to with going deeper into the options. Is there a way to show the users assets in their details sceen, or show the user name next to the device in the assets screen? I hope that makes sense Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  11. Hi @James Ainsworth, is there any update on this please? Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  12. @James Ainsworth Hi James, our service desk complete daily checks that could result in further actions being needed from other IT teams. To capture this though and meet internal controls the SD must raise a new incident. The details in the call are always the same so being able to raise a quick call with all the details already completed makes life a lot easier for them. I don't really want to have to create new CI's, PC's and BPM's just to raise a simple call, especially when there could be at least 20 differnent options. The quick calls were a great little feature of the old supportworks system so I'm surprised you would not keep this in service manager when it probably just needs a little more tweaking to get it right? Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
  13. How do I force the status of requests from resolved to closed on mass? Due to the way the BPM were initally created at go live, we have a lot of calls stuck in a resolved status and will never move to a closed status. We want to force this change on mass so we can get accurate reports on closed calls. Thanks Regards, Andy Hodkinson
