Changing Queue reference in emails


#1

Greetings!

I would like the response emails (comment, reply) to reflect the queue
that they’re generated from, not the RT instance. We have multiple
queues, and I think it will get confusing to have the messages say “I.T.
Support” when the ticket generated is actually from the Engineering
queue.

How is this done? Do I need to create a whole new series of templates
for each queue?

Thanks, as always!!!

Hi Kevin,

I think that’s the purpose of the fields on the Basics tab when editing a
queue’s configuration. For instance, in my Support queue the Description
is “Support Requests” and the Reply Address is
"support_reqs@abc.com". Replies to tickets are from “Support Requests
support_reqs@abc.com”.

Regards,
Gene

Kevin,

We have just one template for when a ticket is created and we put the 

following into it:

Queue : {$Ticket->QueueObj->Name}

That line could be put into ANY template and it would show what queue 

the reply came from. Hope this helps.

Thanks to everyone who answered my question.

However, I think I did not pose my question the right way. Mea culpa.

What I need is a way to separate tickets with the queue name, as well.
When a user submits the ticket, it generates the ticket with the $rtname
as the ticket prefix, as in “[HELPDESK #24]” instead of the queue name
referenced by {$Ticket->QueueObj->Name}. When the user gets the
autoreply, the subject must contain the $rtname in the subject or else
another ticket is generated when the user replies instead of the reply
being put into the original ticket.

I would like to gen the ticket with the queue name as the ticket ID, not
$rtname.

Is there anyway to do this short of running multiple instances of RT?

Thanks again!!!

Yep. Upgrade to RT 3.8. it’s a built in feature.
