Fluent Support 1.6.7: JS Help Desk & Help Scout Migration, Dynamic Dashboard & More Bug Fixes!

Wow! How fast time flies!

Last November 2021, we launched Fluent Support, a WordPress helpdesk plugin for small business owners. And after one year, it is now powering 4000+ small businesses’ customer support!

After the initial launch, our main goal was to improve the plugin with continuous updates. As we always do, we listen to our customers. We took every suggestion and feature request, analyzed them, and shipped them accordingly. Take a look at our anniversary blog; we recapped our whole journey and showcased important features we added.

Now it’s time for a new update. In our last update Fluent Support 1.6.6, we introduced a new feature of Fluent Support – ‘Ticket Importer.’ Using this, you can migrate your customer support tickets from other plugins. Ticket importing was only available for Awesome Support & Support Candy. Now we added two new options!

Migrate from JS Helpdesk & Help Scout

Our ‘Ticket Importer’ feature only had options to migrate from Awesome Support and Support Candy. Now we are adding two new support platforms – JS Help Desk & Help Scout!

If your customer support system runs by the JS HelpDesk WordPress plugin, it’s easy to migrate to Fluent Support with one click. Like Awesome Support & Support Candy, you must install Fluent Support Pro in your WordPress site running JS Help Desk. Then after setting up Fluent Support, you’ll see the JS Help Desk option in the ‘Ticket Importer’ setting.

Migrating tickets from Help Scout needs some work. Help Scout is a Saas tool that only offers API that can be used to transfer data from their system to your WordPress system. Check out our detailed documentation on migrating customer ticket data from Help Scout to Fluent Support.

Agent summary export

Fluent Support “Report” features show both team and individual reports exclusively. What about exporting the data for other use?

We hear you! Now you can export the agent’s report summary from the ‘Report’ tab.

You can export individual reports too if you want. Check out our documentation on agent summary export.

Agent assign action added to activity log

Activity log is an important feature for knowing what is happening to your customer support team real-time. It shows all types of activity. But previously, it had not shown when an agent assigned a ticket. Now we added this to the activity log.

When a new agent is assigned to a new ticket, it will be visible on the activity log and show which agent was assigned by whom.

New WooCommerce integration improvement

We tweaked the design of Fluent Support WooCommerce integration a little bit. Now customers’ WooCommerce purchase history will show clearly in their tickets.

Here is the previous version:

Now your agents will see the WooCommerce order ID and order status in the sidebar under “WooCommerce Purchase.”

Here is the new version:

And when you click individual order, a new window pop-up with order details, including billing, shopping, and product details.

Bug Fixes

We worked on some bug fixes that were requested by our users in this update. Have a look.

Actions are not showing on the manual workflow

Previously, when creating or editing manual workflows, there were no actions shown. We fixed this in this update.

Attachments are not sent on the first response

There were issues with attachments in tickets. They were not sent on a ticket’s first response. Our developers fixed the issue.

Block user’s ticket isn’t blocking in the Fluent Form Integration

When a blocked user submits a ticket through the Fluent Form integration, the ticket is still created in the support portal. But it should not be created. We looked into the issue and fixed the loophole.

Filters reversed after opening a new window

Filter doesn’t remain in place after getting out of a ticket. Filter reverted to the default mode even though it was changed before loading a ticket. We solved this glitch.
