A new in-ticket audio player allows you to listen to audio attachments with just a click, right from the ticket page.

You no longer have to download audio files attached to tickets to listen to them. This new feature lets agents save time when delivering customer support.

New feature update

When integrating a voice note message from another system using the REST API, the audio file will render using the browser’s default audio player if it is in the proper format.

Additional fields in the advanced ticket filter

New fields have been added in the worklog advanced filter to allow users to track and analyze metrics on the total logged hours and billable hours.

For example, to search for tickets that do not have a worklog, you can use the filter Total Hours Logged set to Is empty.

Reports and analytics

BoldDesk’s reporting and analytics dashboards deliver detailed insight into individual agent and collective team performance, overall help desk effectiveness, and customer satisfaction.

We have made several improvements to this module.

General improvements

  • A multi-select option is available for agents and groups in the agent performance report.
  • The customer satisfaction report includes a new field for Rated by to let you know who gave the rating.
  • The contact performance dashboard supports grouping by the category field.
  • The Ticket ID field has been added to the advanced search in the report module.
  • New fields, contact tags, and contact group tags have been included in the advanced filter.
  • Hyperlink support has been added to the ticket export function.
  • We’ve updated the SLA stats widget logic for SLA Achieved tickets, counting achievements and breaches differently.
  • The worklog report has a new Group by field for Ticket/Activity linked tickets.
  • A new column called Total Tickets has been included in the widget for SLA achieved versus breached tickets on the SLA dashboard.
  • All reports adhere to ticket access scope and brand-level data restrictions.
  • The export option is available for all tables.

Time format updates across all reports

Time format adjustments have been made for time fields in all reports.

When users export reports to Excel, the date-time fields now adhere to the time zones specified in their profile.

Home page updates

The BoldDesk home page has been modernized with the addition of the following new features.

Retention of the previously selected columns in grid view

It can be annoying having to repeatedly select the same columns every time you use the column chooser.

With our new smart retention feature, your last selected columns will remain selected so you can dive back into your work each time you return to the page.

Selecting columns in grid view

Search private note messages

Our all-new Private Message filter lets you search for content in private notes. You can even narrow down the search further to a specific brand, category, or status of the private message.

Admin module updates

The admin module has been updated to improve the user experience further.

Additional configuration options in the worklog settings

More configuration options are available in the worklog settings. Administrators have more control options to help manage customer support teams.

They can:

  • Make it mandatory for agents to update the time spent when adding replies or notes
  • Make it mandatory for agents to add a description whenever they add or edit a worklog
  • Set the default worklog type as either billable or nonbillable

Worklog settings

Enhanced control over closed ticket actions

Administrators can customize and automate the response to end-user interactions in closed tickets, whether it’s through email or the customer portal.

You can set up your system to reopen tickets automatically, instruct the end user to create a new follow-up ticket, or not change the status at all when a customer reaches out on a previously closed issue.

This automation ensures no customer query goes unnoticed, even if it was previously considered resolved.

Editing a closed ticket

Support for IP restrictions in both the agent and customer portals

Security is always our priority at BoldDesk. Our new IP restriction feature empowers you to implement an additional layer of security around your agent or customer portal by specifying exactly which IP addresses and ranges are granted access.

This new feature helps protect valuable data and elevate your peace of mind.

IP restriction rules

Edit the profiles of deactivated agents

Previously, the profiles of deactivated agents were locked in time and could not be edited. Administrators can now update and edit the profiles of deactivated agents at their convenience.

This allows them to keep all agent information up-to-date and accurate, ensuring your records are always current, even for past team members.

Support for the traditional Chinese language

We believe that language barriers should never be a hurdle to delivering good customer service.

BoldDesk now supports the traditional Chinese language to help you cater to an even larger customer base. The total number of supported languages in BoldDesk is now 27.

Importing agents and groups

In addition to importing information for contacts and contact groups, administrators can now import data for agents or agent groups from an Excel file.

Whether you’re looking to onboard a new batch of agents or update existing group data, this new feature will save you time and minimize errors.

What’s coming next?

This release has been a great one, but we have more on the way!

Soon, we will launch the following features. Take a look at this roadmap,

  • A live chat module
  • WhatsApp Integration
