I’m evaluating deploying RT in an organization where most of the
requests come in by phone, and people sometime wish to remain anonymous.

Have other people used RT like this? There are few changes from the
default install of RT that are needed to make this really easy:
In the model of “everybody is a user”, for people that identify
themselves, operators can be trained to create or search for a user,
and /then/ create a ticket. I see that phone number and address
support is already present in the user records. That’s good.
In the “Create a new Ticket” screen, user ids as well as
e-mails need to be accepted in the “Requestors” box. I just tried
this, and found what appeared to be a bug in RT 2.0.15: It silently
ignored my input and set the Requestor field to “none”.
