Support Ticket Timers



We should have the ability to implement timers, just like Ubersmith.. should we need to follow up with a client (sales lead) and or support maintenance windows etc we should be able to set timers on tickets for specific time/days.

We plan on buying the busyrack ticket timer module until this gets integrated into the base whmcs install. Any chance that this might get worked in some time WHMCS? :D
This feature would be extremely helpful. Especially since most major helpdesks already provide something similar

Hi,
as i stated before - this issue should be part of WHMCS without the need to buy a module for that.

i'm using the http://www.busyrack.com/whmcs-ticket-timer/ module and it's o.k. - but nevertheless it should be part of the ticket system in WHMCS directly.

BTW,
there should be an option to mark the ticket in which the timer was set off,
now you can change the status and so on - but i think that i'f the ticket where to be bold (like unread ticket) or maybe a different color that stay that way until you confirm that you acknowledge the timer is off (in the due time that you set the timer too) - something like an alarm clock that you should press something to stop the alarm.
would be a very usefull furute!
why does whmcs require an addon for this?

This is a very common feature of every other ticket systems i know :P

yes, we need this whmcs : that's how tickets should be working!
I purchase an addon with this feature, and works perfect for me, at the addons market exist a person who develope similar request.

The name is ticket timet.

Certainly an important feature that would ensure admins don't forget to attend to certain tickets. especially tickets that need to be attended to much later
Just tried Busyrack module and I belive that simple timer like on projects tasks is better,
+ Description per time scheduling
with total time for Ticket and Option to Invoice this total time
for example: 5 minutes: first review
30 minutes: fix
10 minutes: QA
total time: 45 Minutes
Invoice for 50USD

Tom made a perfect addon
What about using the marketing system? you can add in a hook that does a check per your requirements on the daily cron run and sends out the correct email? no need to code in "tickers" whmcs already has the functions for this you just need to work up your own magic for it.

Not everyone knows how Ubersmith does something - please be detailed in your request to ensure the community can understand.

I assume, because I'm not familiar with Ubersmith, that you wish to set a timer so you check back into a ticket - is that correct?
So what do you think Chris :)
OK well I persoanlly think this is a really good idea, both for support and sales.
Hi again,
I can see that this request is still under "Requires Feedback what other feedback or information do you need?
Sounds good.
so you can use it with a specific ticket status, so every ticket with this status only will get the reply that you want.
