With Freshdesk Mint, we've rebuilt Freshdesk to be a modern, faster and more responsive platform, so that it's easier for you to interact with your customers. In the first phase of this new experience, we're improving the Dashboard, Tickets and Contacts pages to better reflect how our customers use Freshdesk.
Here's a quick overview of the Mint experience:
With Mint, we are introducing a set of new features to improve support workflows:
- Navigation panel - You can now navigate faster between the various sections in your helpdesk with the icon-based navigation panel to the left.
Today’s trends widget - You can see the current received tickets count as compared to the previous day's, for every hour. You can also view the top helpdesk metrics for the day such as tickets received/resolved, average response times, and SLA resolution percentage here.
Product and Group based filters - You can now filter the Dashboard by a specific group or product to view only the corresponding ticket summary metrics and trends.
Ticket Card/Table view - We’re introducing the Ticket Table view, a simplified way of seeing the list of tickets in a view, in addition to the existing Ticket Card view.
Assign to Agent/Group - You can now assign tickets to a specific group from the Edit panel for each ticket.
Tags - You can see ticket tags at the top of each ticket in the Ticket Card view.
CSAT response - You can see the CSAT rating that a ticket has received near the ticket source icon in the Ticket Card view.
Quick reply/add notes - Hovering over a ticket in either views shows a preview of the ticket description. You can now quickly reply or add notes to tickets from within the preview.
Ticket details view
Jump to ticket view - You can now see the list of tickets in the current view as a pop-up in the Ticket details page, by clicking on the ellipsis between the navigation arrows at the top right. You can jump directly to a particular ticket from here.
Reply editor - You will now see a simplified Reply editor with all the extended features like formatting options, inserting canned responses/solution articles, including satisfaction surveys and attaching files as icons at the bottom left of the editor.
Create ticket for a contact - You can now create a new ticket for a particular contact within the Contact details page using the plus icon to the right of the contact name.
Automatically map fields while importing contacts - You can select a file to import contacts and Freshdesk will now automatically map the columns to your ticket fields.
- New dropdown for ticket/email - You can now add a new ticket, email, contact or company from the New dropdown at the top right of the helpdesk. By default, clicking on the button will create a new ticket.
Listed below are features that have been modified from the earlier version of Freshdesk:
