To set to customer of the ticket for EmailOutbound screen

Post by drodralv »

Hi,

Will be possible to set that by default the contact of the "To" field within the EmailOutbound screen would be the customer user of the ticket?

As for now, we have to use that field looking for the customer within DA user list.

Thank you

Hi,

Why? This screen has another use case. Why not use Reply?

Hi,

Usually our customer users do not have access to the OTRS interface and our agents want to send them that Email communication.

Hey,

Reply will sent out a normal email.

An external notice is the only communication channel that'd force a customer to use the OTRS customer interface.
EmailOutbound is mainly used to communicate with a third party via email — not the customer.

E-Mail outbbound was developed for a special usecase:
- communication with external (3rd) party
- no disclosure of ticket content

So thats why not recipient is in there.
