DeskPRO Build #239 Released

Authors list

We are pleased to announce a new release of the DeskPRO helpdesk platform, build #239.

The following is an automatically generated list of changes in this release:

  • Fix updates from get_messages not using correct person context
  • Tab for full visitor details
  • Improvements to visitor tracking - Can connect to an authenticated person if they have an active session - Better reloading/display of active users for agents
  • Fix not showing blank chat section instead of login form if login required
  • Few fixes to visitor code
  • Fix not accepting uploads from chat when portal offline
  • Fix date range on agent hours not setting
  • Put replybox at bottom of screen when larger than list
  • Fix hover color of tabs in IE
  • Fix instant-updating not checking department IDs for permissions, so you could get tickets added into the list you are viewing but unable to actually read them
  • Fix validating requests that arent changing fields
  • Settings to require selections for ticket category, product, workflow and priority
  • Fix 'create ticket' from profile tab showing empty user
  • Fix disabled fields being hidden from view in admin on people/org views (tickets is a separate view that was okay)
  • Fix memory usage with custom fields Main problem here is sharing a $field_group when the form itself is not a real form used on a single form. That is, when a field is created for the sole purpose of rendering the field in multiple places. We'd end up with each field being added to a shared form, then the formView being created over and over again, and each time creating new views with more and more fields.
  • Fix a few calls to bad vars with updated visitor schema
  • Fix text description for agent field validation option
  • Fix counts potentially coming out of sync
  • Fix weirdness with ticket list display options
  • Better display of license error/demo expired in overlay popup
  • Stop logging bad method request errors
  • Fix <?xml tags preceding some HTML email messages when cut
  • Use ConsoleOutputWriter with cron.php verbose switch
  • Add a plaintext email cut pattern
  • Add method to visitor to get last IP address
  • More around visitor tracking - Added geo using GeoIP ext - Show online users in agent header by chat icon
  • Added autoreply subject pattern
  • Visitor tracking
  • Fix missing log from "reprocess email source" page
  • Dont check for ref regex match when trying a to load a ticket via ref, the format might've been changed
  • Don't use UID for dupe checking in ticket gateway. UIDs are supposed to be guaranteed unique across specific POP3 servers, and this code was properly only checking the specific account. But there is potentially cases where POP3 servers are moved transparently (e.g., new server but exact same credentials so no new gateway is created in DeskPRO), or the server was reset, the server doesn't implement the spec fully, etc. In these sorts of cases we could end up with UID's being the same, and then false positives. So better to just not use UID here and rely on the usual dupe detection using hashes.
  • Fix bad casting in log message to int
  • Handle case where tmpdir isnt writable for swiftmailer cache, try to use system tmp dir
  • Fix bug with searching usersources for unregistered email on newticket

  • Fix linked departments not showing as linked in template, fix department select being too small
  • Fix TreeProxy not handling children_ordered access
  • Fix custom phrases in lang being overriden by custom phrases in English
  • With two-level select, if you fail to select a sub-option you get around the "required" validation requirement
  • Move 'is manager' icon on org view so it doesn't disappear on long names (or if zoomed in etc)
  • Fix custom agent/admin phrases not being loaded when called from the CLI/Cron
