    After giving it a thought or two - totally agree with Marta Jacuk-Zurak 👌

    Hello @Marta Jacuk-Zurak,

    Thanks for letting us know about your case! I'm going to generate a ticket on your behalf so our Customer Advocacy team can look into this further.

    You'll receive an email shortly stating your ticket has been created.

    I think there is a way to achieve this by adding an extension (target) and modifying your trigger to update the ticket with a public reply using the Notify Target. Then your usual ticket update notification trigger will send an email to your customer just like it does with any other public comment. Could that work for you?

    Hi Heather Rommel,

    Right now I have it done using an API, but to be honest, having it added, when the trigger is fired is much simpler and when any change will need to be done we would not require a developer engagement

    Besides that, when a trigger is sending an email to a Customer it should appear as Public Reply - it is a message to Customer.


    In trigger conditions, when the text of the message is typed there should be a tick-box if this should be visible as a public reply, internal note, or none.

    Taking under consideration e.g. Side Conversation and the fact that the message appears in the ZD ticket 'Message' tab as an internal note, I think having the same on triggers should be available.

    Thank you
