Search Layout

The Search Layout will allow you to search through already submitted tickets. It is to be noted that if you are logged in as a customer it will search on tickets that belong to the logged in user. If the user is a staff member it will search through tickets that are accessible (is assigned as staff for a department). In both instances, the search will be performed on the ticket subject and message fields. Furthermore, you can perform the search only on flagged tickets.

RSTickets!Pro offers a advance search option. Here you can filter out the result based on the following criteria: customer (username or email address), staff member (username or email address), department, priority and status. The search results can be filtered by: last reply, subject, status, priority and replies, ascending or descending.


Submit Layout

The Submit Layout will allow one to post new tickets. It is basically the ticket submission form.

As a parameter, this menu item has a Department option. Setting this will open up the ticket submission form with the configured department selected by default.


Dashboard Default Layout

The Dashboard Layout introduces a single frontend focal point for RSTickets!Pro actions. Accessing the dashboard view, the user will be able to: search the knowledgebase, submit new tickets, view existing tickets, search for tickets, browse through the knowledgebase or directly view the current tickets of the logged in user. This greatly reduces the number of required function specific RSTickets!Pro menu items, by having a single focal point.

The menu item includes the following configuration options:

  • Submit Ticket Description: Text area, add a description for the Submit Ticket link here
  • View Tickets Description: Text area, add a description for the View Tickets link here
  • Search Tickets Description: Text area, add a description for the Search Tickets link here

  • Show Latest Tickets: Set this to Yes in order to display the latest added tickets
  • Number of Tickets: Used in correlation with the Show Latest Tickets option, sets a number of tickets to be displayed

In order for this to work, you will need to enable the 'Allow Self Anonymisation' from Components > RSTickets!Pro > Configuration > Data Protection area.
