We are pleased to announce the latest release of Deskpro Horizon, version 2022.25.0. This release includes several new features that our team is excited to share with you, in addition to a number of general improvements and bug fixes.
💫 Ticket Search Feature (SC 74617)
One of the new features we want to share with you is Ticket Search, this feature allows you to find tickets on the helpdesk by searching against the messages on a ticket. With this new searching functionality, you can quickly locate a specific ticket that matches the keyword of your search in the ticket message.
To access Search, click on the dropdown at the top of the Navigation Panel and click on the Search option. From here, you create a search by entering keywords into the search bar at the top of the content panel, this feature works by matching the keywords you enter to content in ticket messages.
The results will display the most relevant matching tickets with a preview of the message and ticket metadata, the term that is related to your search keywords will be highlighted in the results for additional context. Search will return tickets based on matches with a Ticket’s subjects and messages in a thread.
After you’ve created a search it will appear in under ‘History’ in the Navigation Panel, you can quickly reload a search again by clicking on an item in this list. You can also favorite a search, which will pin it to the top of the history column for you to quickly refer back to and reload any associated tickets again - to do this you simply hover over one of your searches and click the star.
