Empty recipient field on message screen

Hi

I got a request from a customer who wants to have empty recipients field when clicking "Reply" in the ticket screen:

Normally, SuperOffice fills in email addresses from contacts of the ticket when you click "Reply", "Reply all" or "Forward". 

Customer wants to have recipients field empty if access level of ticket is internal. SuperOffce should not prefill the recipients field in this case. The user should still be able to send the message if he wants to. But then he should be forced to fill in recipients field manually.

Any ideas?

Best regards

Hi Marc,

Unfortunately, there is no standard way of doing this. The best sollution would be if we had a CRMScript trigger for the "Calculate recipients" ajax method so that it could be manipulated, but no such trigger exists today.

Hi Sverre,

thank you for reply.

Wouldn't it be better and easier to have a switch, e.g. in the systems settings, to tell SuperOffice whether to prefill recipients field on internal tickets? I guess this might be kind of a common logic.

Best regards

Hi Marc,

The "standard" logic is that "Add comment" is the button to use if you don't want to reply to the customer.

Hello,

A way to manipulate the recipients being added using a trigger would be a great addition, we have had the request from multiple customers to modify which email addresses are added to the cc and/or bcc fields based on for example category or some external field.

Hi mates,

So should we assume by Sverre reply that, at least in short term, there will be no way to change the reply button depending on other field as per example "access level", category or other field?

Thank you!

Hi Clodoaldo,

yes, I think so. As outlined by Sverre "reply" means reply to the customer; so you as a supporter want to send the customer an answer. It is the supporter's responsibility to set the correct recipients. Same holds true for "Reply all" and "Forward".

This is standard service logic that we should not change.

Best regards
