    Hi, is there a way to add more branding (like an image/logo) into the automatic response? I only see the option to add/edit text.

    Hi Steven,

    Our Customizing email templates article has a section called Changing the appearance of HTML emails that should help you. 

    Hope that helps!

    HI, is there a way to create more than one welcome message. Often times we send a followup to an older ticket which is closed, and the welcome message is displayed with my followup although the user did not submit a ticket.

    The problem is it's above my message.

    Maybe if there's a rule or something similar if I use a follow-up, or if an agent creates the ticket, welcome message is not sent or a different message is sent?

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Tomislav! Welcome to the Community!

    Can you tell me exactly what part of the email notification you're referring to when you say "welcome message"? A screenshot would be helpful.

    "Welcome message" in Zendeskian is something different that what you're describing, so I want to make sure I understand what you're asking! :)

    Hey Team!

    Is there a rule that would have this only be used on weekends? We would like to make this used only on weekends to warn them of the delay and redirect to our knowledge base.

    Is there a rule that would work for this?

    Thanks :)

    How do I add the case link to the email, much like Celigo does?

    In addition, the email is all bunched up, no spacing between lines and logo. How do I change the formatting?

    Hi Christine!

    You can add the ticket link, as well as many other pieces of information, by using placeholders in your triggers.

    You can add those placeholders and edit the formatting on your outgoing email notifications by going into your Triggers and editing the email text. You'll access this by clicking the Admin Gear in left toolbar in your agent interface and scrolling down to Business Rules.

    Is it possible to remove this part of the email? "##- Please type your reply above this line -##"

    Yes, I would like to know this answer as well.

    Hi Luke and Christine - 

    This line of text is the delimiter, and it's what prevents all of the other text in an email from being added to the reply. You can, however customize your delimiter's text and font size, color and what it says. Instructions on how to do that can be found in this article: How can I remove the "##-Please type your reply above this line -##" from my outgoing email notifications?

    Do automatic responses count as a first reply? Would we be able to reduce our first reply times if we used automated responses? Thank you!

    Hi Beth,

    Automatic responses do not count as a first reply time unfortunately. The First Reply Time metric calculates the time from when the ticket was created to the first public response sent out by the agent. You can find more information in our [Calculating first reply time](Be on the Professional or Enterprise Support plan) article which I've attached for you. If you're looking to decrease first reply time it may be worth looking into Macros to help get a response out quicker.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi there, 

    Our trigger "Notify requester of received request" defaults to a zendesk administrator as the "from" name. Is there a way to default to a generic senders name for emails sent before the ticket is assigned? 

    Thank you

    Hi Kate,

    If you prefer to not show the agents name when an email notification is sent out I would recommend setting up an Agent Alias instead.

    You can also navigate to Admin>Channels>Email and select Edit next to your Support address to change the optional name from there.

    The last option you can check is located under Admin>Channels>Email. You'll want to double check to confirm if the Personalized email replies is toggled on.

    Try toggling that off if none of the other options above work for you.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey Brett, 

    The optional name is setup as our company name yet the trigger is still picking up one of our administrators as the sender. This admin hasn't setup the trigger and the trigger doesn't have a senders name specified. 

    We are happy to have personalised email replies, however this is an automated trigger email sent when the ticket is first created and before anyone is assigned the ticket. I'm unsure how the trigger is picking up that particular admin person as the sender. This admin is a contractor which is why I would prefer the sender be our company name. 

    Any ideas?

    Is there a way to change the auto-response on a particular ticket status, i.e. when using Pending, the customer receives an email that states, "awaiting your response" but we are using pending for internal teams to perform some work.

    Hi all, 

    I would like to add the customers text into the "thank you for contacting us" message. This so that the customer will know what they have contacted us about. Is that possible? For example: 

    Detailed information about your case:

    Hi, 

    My name is customer and I have a question. Please help.. And so on.

     

    Thank you!

    Hey Frida,

    Can you clarify where exactly you'd like to include this information? Perhaps a screenshot of where you'd like this displayed? Are you just wanting to show the user information that the requester provided back to them?

    Let me know!

    Hi Brett, 

    Thank you for your answear! 

    Below you will find a picture of the automatic e-mail that is sent to our end users when they send an e-mail to us. The e-mail is telling the customer that "we have recived your case" and so on. Here, I would like the text in the customer e-mail sent by the customer to be shown in the end of the message. Sort of like "this is what you wrote to us". Do you understand what i mean?

    Thanks Frida!

    You should be able to edit your Notify requester of received request trigger under Admin>Business Rules>Triggers and add the ticket.description placeholder below your text. More information on placeholders here: Zendesk Support Placeholders Reference

    Let me know if the above doesn't make sense.

    Cheers!
