We’re pleased to announce the release of Deskpro Horizon, version 2023.18. This release includes several new features our team has been developing, general improvements to product functionality and interface, and several bug fixes.
✨ More objects can now be translated from the Admin Drawers
We’ve expanded the availability of our Admin translation UI for several different helpdesk items. Previously, only some titles were available to translate directly from their menu in the Admin interface, while other titles had to be managed through the Custom Phrase interface (SC 105065).
✨ We added new functionality to the sorting preferences for Help Center to make the preferences consistent for Agents when managing Knowledgebase Articles, News Posts, and Files (SC 96671). The changes we’ve implemented are:
Added a loading state to indicate that there are more items in the list.
The sorting preferences will be remembered to make it easier to navigate content when going back to a view.
💅 We improved the navigation for Knowledgebase articles, now if you are within a category you can select the Parent Category and be taken back to the top level. Where previously, this wouldn’t return you to the top-level category.
💅 We’ve added icons into the Ticket Reply box for App actions to ensure you can easily remove them if required (SC 82887).
💅 We made further improvements to the Ticket Preview menu (SC 89755):
It is now accessible in Kanban View
The menu will now remain open if the ticket leaves the Queue
We added some tooltips to enhance clarity as well as other smaller UI improvements like keeping the color of the Star consistent.
💅 We removed some outdated validation rules for built-in fields to avoid confusion (SC 108295).
💅 We added a notification to let you know if a Help Center Template hasn’t been saved successfully (SC 97744).
🐛 We released updates for the HubSpot and Zoom apps:
HubSpot: The app will now display the currency that is set up in your HubSpot account to ensure accuracy.
Zoom: We made a correction in the Setup Guide.
🐛 We fixed two issues with the search function on the Lists feature (SC 107186):
Results will now be returned when using the search bar for Departments, Languages, or Brand
The Date and More fields will no longer be case-sensitive to ensure searching is more effective.
🐛 We added missing error validations for the custom File field to improve the experience while setting the file size limit. And added validation for the upload file limit (SC 98053 & 104956).
🐛 We have removed the ability to delete all Admin users on an instance using a Mass Action to ensure there is always an Admin user on an account. Additionally, an Admin can no longer delete themselves from an account (SC 99728).
🐛 Fixed a bug where Emojis inserted into Agent IM messages would appear on the next line, they will now appear in line with the message (SC 97988).
🐛 Fix delay when sending IM messages (SC 93231).

🐛 Fixed an issue where the red underline on custom number fields would still appear once a value was entered (SC 98684).
🐛 We fixed an issue where applying the Add Reply/Note Macro would cause duplicate responses to be sent (SC 99172).
🐛 Fixed a bug with Email notifications for Tasks, now email reminders will be sent to Agents for their assigned Tasks (SC 106167).

🐛 We fixed an issue with image resolution for Guide splash images where the image would be positioned incorrectly (SC 108330).
🐛 We fixed an issue where some ticket messages wouldn’t load if Ticket Satisfaction was disabled (SC 109214).
🐛 Fixed an issue where the Global App windows would appear partially in the reply box if opened on a Community Topic (SC 103781).
🐛 We fixed an issue where saving one Brand’s settings would remove the welcome message from another Brand (SC 97262).
🐛 Fixed an issue where you couldn't delete non-repeating holidays in the Business Hours menu (SC 106427).
🐛 Fixed an issue with email processing where replies with just action codes would get rejected (SC 94984).
