    Hi Blake!

    You can totally do that with a Trigger. Just make sure that you've adjusted the conditions on both Triggers so that they don't both fire on new tickets.

    I'd like a different email subject for tickets that I have created on behalf of someone else.

    Currently when I created a new ticket for someone else the Subject of the email that goes out is from the "Notify requester of received request" Trigger, "[Request received] {{ticket.title}}"

    Is there a way to remove  "REQUEST RECEIVED " in subject line? Thanks, Timothy

    Hey Timothy!

    You can set this workflow up using triggers, as long as you're on the Team plan or above.

    "Notify requester of received request" is a default trigger, but you can alter it to include a condition: Current user > Is not > Agent. This will make it so the trigger will only fire when the person submitted the ticket is an end-user.

    Then you can clone that trigger and chance that new condition to Current user > is > Agent. Change the text of the email to whatever you would like it to say, for that scenario, and you'll be all set!

    Is there any way to see tickets I've created and sent after the fact? When you send a new ticket, it instantly disappears.

    Because we have to communicate back & forth on a daily basis with another help center using Freshdesk, this presents some challenges, as the two platforms aren't always compatible. Often we find our first attempt to send a ticket didn't go through, so we have to write the entire thing out a second time and try again. 

    If I could find my sent tickets somewhere and simply add another reply to get that ticket sent again, it would be very beneficial!

    Hi Noel -

    To see tickets on which you are the requestor, go to your profile in Support, and then select "requested tickets" - this will show you all of the tickets that you have created, so long as the requestor has not been changed.

    When I create new ticket on behalf on someone else, the requester do not get any email with my response. It doesn't matter if I send as a new or open ticket. If, on the other hand, I send an update on the same ticket that I just created, the requester get the message immediately including the first part of the ticket. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Ola,

    You'll want to check the ticket events of your ticket you created which should show whether or not your Notify requester trigger has fired.

    I would also confirm that you're default triggers are still enabled, particularly the Notify requester triggers. You can find a list of your triggers by navigating to Admin>Business Rules>Triggers
