We’re delighted to announce the latest release of Deskpro Horizon, version 2022.24.0. This release includes new features, general improvements, and bug fixes.
Two new features available with this release
💫 We have published our Shopify App, v1.0.7 (SC 74980).
💫 The Deskpro mobile app now supports QR code-based login. When logged into a web browser, agents can generate a login QR code in preferences and scan it to log in seamlessly. (SC 56583).
Some of the improvements we’ve made
💅 We’ve improved how the helpdesk detects links (URLs and email addresses) in ticket messages and notes. So when an email address is detected you can click on the address to create a new ticket addressed to that email (SC 55913).
💅 The Admin dashboard has been adjusted to display a quick overview of your helpdesk’s stats and give you a shortcut to the reports interface (SC 74778).
💅 Task reminders will now default to using the helpdesk’s timezone when sending agents notifications about a task that is due (SC 54989).
💅 In the Admin interface, you can sort tables on previously unsupported columns (SC 57167).
💅 We’ve added a login token query to the agent API (SC 73669).
💅 The security surrounding setting and resetting agent passwords has been improved; agents will no longer receive a new password in plain text they will be emailed a link to securely set or reset the password (SC 72823).
💅 The default lists will now be compatible with the simple query builder, so will populate the filter panel when selected (SC 73327).
💅 We’ve added the WhatsApp annotation features such as *Bold* and ~strikethrough~ so you can format your WhatsApp messages (SC 58111).
💅 Filter tickers by approvals with our new FQL term `ticket.approvals` (SC 52324).
💅 Using date shortcuts like "this week" or "next month" in the list builder or saved search will now yield results (SC 71843).
