  1. Absolutely I take your point regarding HR and IT services requiring different questions. In this context I am talking purely about IT services. Perhaps what I deemed a workaround is a valid way of working after all in that case!
  2. Hi James, Sorry for taking a while to get back to you. Yes I was referring to the Service Portal. Apologies, I must have started typing ticket types and continued onto Problems without thinking! To me, it just feels a bit counter-intuitive. As a worked example, we are currently re-designing our Service Catalogue (in the ITIL sense of the word "service") and will probably end up with 15 - 20 services. For incidents, in particular, it seems inefficient to have 20 services displayed on the portal, with each one having an incident request catalogue entry underneath it. Wouldn't it be easier to have one big "Something's wrong, help!" button on the Service Portal and then as part of the BPM it is linked to the relevant service? As a workaround at the moment we have a "Whats not working?" service, which is then linked to the service that is impact. However, that in itself causes a bit of a reporting headache as some ticket types are logged directly against a service and others are linked to a service. Thanks, Mike
  3. Bumping this as I can't believe no-one else is doing or wants to do this?
  4. With an ITSM tool, you would usually expect follow roughly this process to log a ticket; Choose whether you're logging an incident/change/problem/etc. Associate this ticket to the relevant service This means you have a homepage with perhaps a button for each ticket type. However, Hornbill seems to force you down this route to a log a ticket; Find which service you think might be affected by incident/change/problem/etc. Choose a request catalogue item within that service that is relevant depending whether it is an incident/change/problem/etc. The "Hornbill way" leads to a more cluttered first screen (you need to display all of your services) and seems at odds with other tools I have used. I was just wondering why this is and if there is any plan to change it?
  5. Is anyone else trying to do this, or has managed to achieve it?
  6. Hi James, I did have access to that tool (didn't know it existed!) so I ran the following query; SELECT * FROM h_itsm_requests where h_requesttype='problem' I exported the results to Excel to check what statuses the problems had, but only the following showed, so I don't think the issue you've seen before is what's at play here? Cheers, Mike
  7. I have set up a view for problem tickets with the following criteria: However, out of 47 tickets, 3 do not appear in the view even though they adhere to the criteria. I only found out about them because a report with exactly the same criteria shows them. I can view the tickets so I don't think permissions are an issue. Can anyone figure out why this might be the case?
  8. I want to gather the time spent on linked requests. For example, if a problem ticket as 10 linked incidents, I'd like to sum up the time spent on those 10 incidents for cost/benefit analysis of fixing a problem. I'm sure this was reported as an upcoming feature at Insights - does this feature exist or is it in development?
  9. Just wanted to bump this in case anyone has any ideas...?
  10. We have around 200 services in Hornbill Service Manager. The same problem management process is linked to all of them, but I want to change the request details form. Is there a way I can "bulk" update the request details form for all services? If that isn't an option, I may create a service specifically for problem management and link to the relevant service instead as it gives me more control. If I were to go for that option, is there a way I can "bulk" turn off the problem configuration for every service?
  11. I don't seem to have that option available?
  12. I now have access! I've created an assessment, but it looks like the "Impact Level" is calculated by summing the value of the answers to the questions. Is it possible to choose to multiply values instead? In essence, I'm trying to get your traditional impact vs. probability matrix calculation into Hornbill.
  13. How can you assign a Human Task, within a BPM workflow, to the owner of the Request ticket?
