Company Settings

The company settings page allows you to change a few system-wide settings. For example, the company name, the time zone the company operates in, the format of your ticket references amongst other things.

Company Name

Your company name can be changed by simply by deleting the company name currently in the text field, and replacing it with the altered one you'd like.

Time Zone

The time zone your country operates in can be set here, it will be the timestamp used in outgoing e-mails, as well as determining schedules for use in macros and SLAs.

Ticket Reference

Every ticket which is added to your support system will be assigned a ticket reference, so that it can be found precisely. The default format for this reference is two random letters, then a hyphen, then six random digits. If you prefer, you can change the format of your ticket references so that they contain different amounts of letters/numbers, or include information regarding the day the ticket was submitted. Any tickets which were submitted before you changed the format will retain their old reference.

There are six different variables you can use within the ticket reference:

  • %i will insert a random digit
  • %s will insert a random letter character
  • %y will insert the current 4-digit year
  • %x will insert the current 2-digit year
  • %m will insert the current 2-digit month
  • %d will insert the current 2-digit day

You can also use any of the symbols + - _ @ : ! % as well as any letters or numbers you choose.

For example, the default ticket reference format, %s%s-%i%i%i%i will produce something like RD-201716, whereas a the format %d-%m%x:%s%i%s%i%s%i would produce a reference like 23-04-14:K6E0N9.

Allowed Networks

You can specify a list of networks that are permitted to access your account. Once you have added this to your account, you'll only be able to login from these networks. When viewing the page, you'll be presented with your current IP address so be sure to add that to your Allowed Networks before updating your settings.
