Canned responses

Is there an easy way to send canned responses to users? I noticed that
for RT 2 there was an add-on called StockAnswers. Is there anything like
this for RT 3?

Thanks!

Hi rt-users,

An interesting idea just occured to me:

An integral part of my companies support function orbits around RT.
Since we get a large amount of queries from clients, it stands to reason
that you will get multiple
questions of the same type.

Therefore, would it be difficult to modify RT to include a canned response
facility where by in reply to
a support query you could select the appropiate response from a drop down
menu (by subject) and e-mail this in reply to the query.

Has anybody out there implemented such a facility or even tried to?

Ideas, expansions, analysis etc… are greatly welcomed on this.

All the best,
JP

I’ve been playing around a bit with this - I thought I’d use the RT
template scheme and it seems to work OK. A drop-down list of
templates (queue and global) appears on the Reply screen and when you
choose one, the parsed template is placed into the message box.

One limitation I decided on is that transaction references aren’t
allowed in the template. Well, they are, but they don’t give you anything.

I’ll dig out the code tomorrow.

That’s something that RTFM 2.2 provides too.

I am geting following error on reminder page.
How do i solve it.

It’s already implemented. You’re looking for RTFM (the RT FAQ Manager). It
has the functionality you’re looking for.

I have installed RT 3.4.5 by RPMs on FC4 and its
working fine. Now I need to install RTFM on it but i
dont know whats the RT instance paths for Makefile.pl
Any help regarding RTFM Makefile.pl

Thanks.

RTFM does provide this functionality & more.

I posted some code that uses a simpler, less full-featured solution at:

Where do i see tickets archive or those tickets which
are solved or closed.

Can I increase the no of tickets on RT home page from
Top 10 to Top X.

How to see the whole list of non Privileged users.

Waitingf for help.

Im gonna suggest searching the wiki and the mailing list archive. The
first two questions are FAQ’s. Links to the wiki and mailing list
archives should be in your welcome message.

Where do i see tickets archive or those tickets which
are solved or closed.

Build a query, search for them.

Can I increase the no of tickets on RT home page from

Yes.

How to see the whole list of non Privileged users.

Not exactly sure about that one.

Waitingf for help.

Hoping you are searching for answers while waiting :wink:

Thnks.
I check the query builder and found it very usefull.
