We are thrilled to introduce our exciting November product release! The November product release has several new features designed to enhance the user experience and improve productivity.
These features have been developed based on user feedback and industry trends.
In addition to new features, the November product release also includes several improvements to existing functionalities.
These improvements aim to address previous limitations and provide users with a more seamless and efficient experience.
The BoldDesk team has incorporated the following features to elevate your customer support experience.
The ticketing system has been improved with the following update.
Additional configurations to manage CC field in tickets
Users can now manage the configuration for the CC field at the organizational level. This can be enabled through the general settings in the admin section.
The contact module has been updated as follows.
Advanced filters and views support
In the contact module, updates have been made to include advanced filtering support, enabling the module to operate in a manner similar to ticket filtering. These filters can also be saved as views.
To enhance the activity module capabilities, the following new features were added.
The activity module now includes support for worklogs. A worklog provides valuable insights that can be used to improve time management, resource allocation, and project planning.
Agent signature support for forward ticket activity
The recent update in forward ticket activity is support for the use of agent signatures, much like in regular tickets.
If an agent replies to a forwarded ticket using a configured signature, it will be automatically loaded.
Webhook support for the activity module
Webhooks now include activity events. This enables the transmission of real-time data from the activity module to external applications.
Reports and analytics
The following feature has been added to the reports module.
Ticket metrics report
The reports module now includes a new report titled Ticket Metrics Report. This report provides a variety of ticket-related metrics in a table format.
Using this report, you will be able to view ticket-related metrics such as:
- First response achieved
- First response breached
- Agent update count
- Requester update count
Additionally, it comes with advanced filtering and export options.
Underlying data support for stats and chart widgets
All dashboards and reports can now display their underlying data. You can see this data by clicking on a stat or chart, which will prompt a dialog box with the relevant data.
Furthermore, this data can be exported to Excel and used for further analysis.
The quality of our knowledge base software has been enhanced with the addition of the following new features.
Support for bulk article deletion
We’ve introduced a new feature that allows for bulk deletion of multiple knowledge base articles in one go.
This will significantly reduce the time and effort spent on removing a large number of articles.
Turn auto save option on or off for KB articles
The automatic saving of articles can now be enabled or disabled using the Auto Save toggle button.
When enabled, changes are automatically saved to a draft while an agent edits an article.
Some agents may prefer not to have their changes saved automatically, so they can disable this feature.
Manage knowledge base article tags
This new feature enhances your ability to manage tags on your knowledge base articles.
It allows you to add, edit, delete, and arrange tags, making it easier to categorize and locate articles based on them.
The following functionality has been enhanced to make automation more efficient.
Share ticket action
The automatic sharing of tickets with groups and agents during ticket creation or the updating of events is made possible by the integration of the share ticket feature in the event trigger automation.
These integration updates ensure the smooth functioning of your various software applications.
MS Teams integration
Microsoft Teams now supports a two-way sync integration with BoldDesk. This function enables you to add responses, add notes, and update ticket properties straight from Microsoft Teams.
You can now cancel and refund orders directly from BoldDesk, thanks to the Shopify integration.
The admin module has been updated to improve the user experience.
Setting custom status for agent availability
A new feature has been introduced for adding custom availability statuses. Admins can add new statuses according to their organization’s needs.
This new feature can be found in the agent availability status module within the admin section. However, it’s worth noting that this feature is not available with the Starter or Standard plans.
To control the ability to change statuses, an additional permission has been incorporated into the roles and permissions module.
Import contacts and contact groups in bulk
We have implemented a feature that allows users to import contact and contact group files directly from BoldDesk.
This functionality enables the swift creation of numerous users and contact groups in bulk.
Support for Google Tag Manager ID in customer portal
Users can now integrate the Google Tag Manager ID into the customer portal.
The Google Tag Manager ID enables you to update measurement codes and related code segments swiftly and effortlessly, collectively referred to as tags, on your website or mobile app.
Customize approval module email templates
You can now customize the email templates for the approval module via the email notification module in the admin section.
Article satisfaction rating in embeddable widgets and forms
This new feature allows you to incorporate options for rating article satisfaction within your knowledge base widgets and forms.
This functionality gives users the opportunity to provide feedback on the usefulness and relevance of articles directly within the context of their support interactions.
Apply field display condition using multiselect dropdown field
Previously, ticket fields did not support the inclusion of multiselect fields in field display conditions.
However, now the support for this feature has been provided. Note that only the in operator is supported when using a multiselect field.
Excel export option for admin modules
The following admin modules now have the ability to export data to Excel:
- Ticket views
Edit names of predefined ticket system views
Admins who have permission to manage views can now also edit the names of default system views.
The following new features and updates have been added to the mobile application.

The BoldDesk mobile app offers agents the convenience of effortlessly adding and managing multiple organization portals.
It also provides a smooth experience for switching among these accounts without the inconvenience of logging out and logging back in.
