Agents have three options to choose from, namely;

1️⃣  Category Name

2️⃣  Agent Name

3️⃣  Custom Name

- Choosing the 'Category Name' will add the respective category name as the 'From' name for the outgoing notifications.

- Choosing the 'Agent Name' will add the Agent's name who replies to the ticket, as the 'From' name.

- Choosing 'Custom Name' will display a text-box below, and the text input into the "custom name" field will be sent as the 'From' name for all outgoing notifications for the respective category.

Quick Guide to configure the Display Name in Emails:

To choose the 'From' name that needs to be displayed to the outgoing notifications for tickets from each category, go to "Manage >> Notifications" from the module switcher.


Now, under the "Contact Notifications" section, for each of the below mentioned three types of notifications, you will be able to set up the 'From Name' for all categories in it.

  • New Ticket Auto-Responder: Category Name, Custom Name
  • Ticket Reply: Category Name, Agent Name, Custom Name
  • Ticket Assignment: Category Name, Agent Name, Custom Name 

Changing 'From' name for Outgoing Notifications:

Click on the "New Ticket Auto-Responder" or "Ticket Reply" or the "Ticket Assignment" links, under the "Contact Notifications" section.

In the resultant page, choose the desired template that needs to be used for the outgoing notifications. Once done, under the newly introduced "Display Names in Emails" column, choose between "Category Name", "Agent Name" and "Custom Name" options from the dropdown for each category. (In the case of "New Ticket Auto-Responder", the "Agent Name" option will not be available.)

By default, the 'Category Name' is selected. Click on the drop-down and choose an option from the list.
