It would be awesome if the email parser went a little deeper.  Sometimes a client emails us directly and we forward that email to Pulseway to open a ticket.  The problem with this is that it opens the ticket using our company as the client. 

It would be great if we could get the parser to look in the email headers to find the address that the email originated from and use THAT to assign and client and user to the ticket.  There are other ticket systems that do this.

 

Alternatively (though not as elegant), It would also work to put a flag in the subject line like "@CLIENTNAME" to get the email assigned to the client.  Is there a way to do this with workflows?

Hi @dpbklyn,

This functionality is already available for you, have you tried to configure the email domains for your customers? For more details about this please check out the following article.

I have, but this doesnt work if they send ME an email and I forward it to PulseWay.  THOSE emails end up being listed under our company, not theirs.

Hi @dpbklyn,

Please try to explain to me why would you forward the emails from Pulseway to the Pulseway PSA? Pulseway PSA and RMM are integrated, therefore there is no need to forward emails to PSA.

Chris,

I think you are misunderstanding the issue. example Customer sends an email to my work email (not support@ account, an account that doesn't go through Pulseway email parser) saying they have an issue. I then forward the email to my support@ account which goes through the Pulseway email parser. Now the ticket says it came from my company. This issue is common for us also. Mainly when we are out in the field and we forward the email to create a ticket so another available tech can work it.

Hi,

I'm not sure if it is a good idea to search for the email address from which this email was originated in to the email. It is match simpler to ask your customers to send emails to the help-desk in a first place and then manage them from there, because that is the whole purpose for this application. And then into the Pulseway PSA you have the option to create workflows which will assign tickets to correct queues and notify the technicians that the new ticket was created. Also, multiple technicians can work on the same queue and once they start to work on the ticket, then technician can assign that ticket to him.

Chris, that would be nice if customers only sent to support@ for example but most of us know that in reality customers send to our own personal email addresses.

My current ticketing system allows me to send the original email, using Forward as an attachment, and the ticket is allocated correctly. Some ticketing systems will check the original emails even if forwarded and allocate to the correct customer.

Pulseway PSA needs to address this in one form or another.

Hi @Andy Raybould,

Have you tried to add multiple email parsers to your PSA instance (add your personnel email address so email parser can Pars emails from it)? You may try to create the separate folder in your inbox for these support request emails and then once you place an unread email in this folder, then IMAP will read this email and create a  ticket from it.

Please let us know how it goes.

      I have created a Windows cmd file to copy files nightly on one of my servers. If there is an error, the cmd file outputs the error to an error.txt file, thus updated the "Last Write" date on the file. My command file is working great, and outputs the errors to the error.txt, and the date stamp on the error.txt file is updated each time this happens.
      I configured the Pulseway Computer Settings via Notifications -> Storage -> Files. I added the error.txt and checked for notifications to be sent when the file last write date has changed. (see image)
      This works the first time, but the second, no notification is sent. Am I doing something wrong? Any pointers on how I can make this work consistently?
      Thanks!

      Hey guys! 
       
      I think Pulseway would be even better if the alerts would clear themselves when resolved.. For example, a server with available windows updates will reboot during our custom maintenance window but the alert will stay until I manually clear it in either the webGUI or the Dashboard app. Those kind of alerts along with cpu spikes, short memory outtage etc are more like "white noise" in the monitoring for me and I'd like to focus on alerts where a proper action is needed in order to resolve. 
       
      To build further on this idea an even better improvement would be to tie alerts to scripts, so if Alert X is triggered, script Y will run and Alert X will be cleared. 
      Let me know what you think! // Martin

      Hi Everyone!
      How is possible assign automatically an hardware asset to a customer in PSA when a ticket is created trough a support request ? What kind of configuration i've to do in RMM side to match a customer in PSA?

      Hi.
      It would be amazing if all reports had a "Generate individual reports for each organization" option.
      Then we could just schedule a single report for "all systems" and get individual reports for each customer.
      The alternative is to set up individual reports scoped for each customer. And as a bonus remember to set up new reports every time a new customer is onboarded. :-)

      Hello,
      We are long-term Pulseway customers but lately the Pulseway client has developed a bug and continuously uses up to 20%+ CPU utilisation.
      We logged this with Pulseway on the 4th of July this year but they have been completely ignoring the ticket. I regularly reply to the email thread for an update (at least once a week) but I am ignored. The only time I had a meaningful response was when I threatened to cancel our subscription. This was short lived and now I am back to being ignored with no status updates on my ticket.
      We like the product but we have a handful of servers with this bug and I am simply installing other monitoring products on them. Today I have sent my usual email to Pulseway support asking for a status update on my ticket but I'm certain I'll get nothing back...
      The next step will then be to install a better monitoring product like Infradog and to write the same post on Spiceworks so people know that Pulseway doesn't offer good technical support.
