Associating customFields to QuickCalls?

Hi all,
I’m using the QuickCalls extensions to create tickets of a given type.

It would be great if it were possible to, say, add custom fields to
certain QuickCalls.

For example,

  • a ticket referring to a network problem could have a field named “IP
    address”
  • a ticket referring to a unaccessible web page could have a field named
    "Http error reported"

This can surely be done if associating a custom field to a given queue
(using the “Applies to” option).

However, there could be situations in which it would be useful to
specify a second level (a “type”) and get custom fields relevant to that
type.

Has anyone done anything similar?

All the best,
Giuseppe

Hi all,

certain QuickCalls.

If you want to add a custom field value based on the Quick Call
selected, that would be doable, but you’d have to do some work to
create the proper parameters.

If you want to display a custom field on the quick call screen, then I
suspect you want to search the mailing list archives for users who
have modified Quick Create. Quick Calls was meant to be a quick
’select from a list, make a ticket’ extension. Quick Create is more
suited to collecting information from users at creation time.

Adding a non-global Custom Field to Quick Create or Quick Calls could
obviously have some interesting bugs

Dear Kevin,
thanks for the advice. I was thinking of using a scrip/template together
with QuickCalls, but I’ll also check about Quick Create on the mailing list.

I’m trying to avoid customizing too heavily for the moment, until we
move to a stable and tested situation.

Best regards,
