Email Commands in Zap Helpdesk App lets you perform activities on a Case directly from your email inbox, without having to login to your Dynamics 365. For example, you could perform activities such as changing the case status, assigning it to a different agent, adding a note, responding to Requestor with full chain of conversation history, getting case history etc.
Supported Email Commands:
Assign Case: You can assign the case to any user or team. Parameter can be partial or full name of user or email address (partial email with @ will also do) or #me
#ec #assign [user/team]:
#ec #assign sumeet ballani // Full Name
#ec #assign sumeet // First Name
#ec #assign ballani // Last Name
#ec #assign sballani@ // email address… if @ symbol is used then we look for matching email address
#ec #assign @me // assign case to yourself
#ec #assign support team // assign case to support team… first we match parameter with full name… if no matching found then we try to match with team name…
Set Case Priority: For setting option-set field… first we try exact match…and if no matching value found then we do best match.
#ec #prioirty [priority]:
e.g. #ec #priority high
Set Case Status: Here we match the parameter with Case Status reason values. First we do exact match and if no value found then we do best match.
Please note that only case status for open case can be changed.
e.g. #ec #status in-progress: changes case status to in-progress
#status problem solved: Since this status is for Resolved Case… the case will now be closed and status changed to “Problem Solved”.
Set Case Source:
#ec #source [source]
e.g. #ec #source email
Get Case Conversations:
#ec #getconversation: This will return the public conversation history of the case in email.
#ec #getallconversation: This will return the public as well as private conversation history of the case in email.
Get Case History:
#ec #gethistory: This will return the public history of the case in email.
#ec #getallhistory: This will return the public as well as private history of the case in email.
#ec #notes [notes details] ##:
#notes ?wht abt notes title?
You can easily add notes to the case record!
Sending new response to Requestor with full conversation history: When responding to requestor from Case form – “Email Reply” section …there is an option to respond with full past conversation history (using the “Update Email” feature).
Now you can achieve the same even from Outlook using email command:
#ec #response [response details] ##:
e.g. #ec #response please try refreshing the license again. The issue has now been resolved from our side.##
