(Quick) tickets of a given type

Dear all,
my name is Giuseppe Sollazzo and I work for St George’s University of
London. We’re exploring RT as a ticketing mechanism for our
Helpdesk&Sysadmin Units and we’re pretty happy with it.

However, there’s one thing we’d like to do and it’s not clear if it’s
feasible or not: ‘typed’ (quick) tickets.

As our helpdesk receives multiple requests relating to shared folders
permissions, e-mail and file recovery, etc…, it would be extremely
useful if the helpdesk could create a quick ticket of a certain type.
Example: “create quick shared drive permission ticket” in which the only
things to specify are drive name and requestors.
Even more simply, we need a one-click ticket creation of a certain type,
mostly for service checks. E.g. “check nfs”, “check quota”, etc…

Has anyone implemented anything similar?

Thanks and best regards,

I believe you’re looking for RT::Extension::QuickCalls, which we built
for another university with the exact same sort of a requirement.
