In addition to the default location of tickets on your helpdesk, Freshdesk also supports public ticket URLs that can be accessed by anyone. These URLs make it easy to access ticket conversations when customers are logged out of the helpdesk, or when they have not registered for an account.

The public ticket URL is available as a placeholder under Email Notifications and Canned Responses. However, in order to use this placeholder, you'll need to enable the Anybody with a public ticket URL option; you can do so under Admin > Portal > Settings > User permissions for portal > Who can view tickets on portal.


Public ticket URLs and Email Notifications


Including the public URL of tickets in email notifications will let customers open tickets directly from their emails, without pausing to login to their accounts or trying to remember their password. Here's how to set it up:

  1. Login to your support portal as an Admin.
  2. Go to Admin > Email Notifications, and click Edit next to the notification you'd like to modify.
  3. Click on Insert Placeholder, and then click on Public Ticket URL to insert it into your email.
  4. Save changes





Public ticket URLs and Canned Responses


Just like your email notifications, you can also include the public URL of a ticket with canned responses; like so:

  1. Login to your support portal. 
  2. Go to Admin > Canned Responses > New Canned Response (or edit an existing one).
  3. Click Insert Placeholders, and then choose Public Ticket URL.
  4. Select Save when done.


Tip: Include the ticket URL with all email notifications, including your Agent Reply Template to send out a link to the ticket with every message. A public URL will mean that your customers can jump into the conversation within seconds without having to login.
