Reliable Alerting and On-call Management for Freshdesk
Freshdesk is the sleek SaaS ticketing system from Freshworks. This service allows teams to streamline their support channels and communicate effectively to solve issues as this happens. Support does not have to end at the dashboard. Integrate Freshdesk with SIGNL4 to extend your support team’s operations with actionable real-time alerting.
How it Works
Setting the ticket notification to be directed to your SIGNL4 team ensures that everyone on the team can see a new ticket has been created. More importantly, with SIGNL4 they can take ownership of that ticket and eliminate the redundancy of having multiple team members working on the same. The SIGNL4 connector app for Freshdesk supports the retrieval as well as the update of ticket information.

The integration can be done either flexibly via an automation rule and the Freshdesk Connector App in SIGNL4 or simply by e-mail.
Integration via Connector App
To configure the two-way connection to Freshdesk go to Teams -> Apps -> Freshdesk in your SIGNL4 portal. Here you can enter the details accordingly, mainly the URL to your Freshdesk instance and the Freshdesk API key. You can see the description for each item when hovering over the question mark.
You can find the prerequisites and more details about how to obtain the API key in this article.
The Freshdesk connector app creates a new automation rule in Freshdesk automatically when it is started for the first time. You can find all the details about that automation rule in this article.

Integration via Email
From the Admin settings, access the Support Channel tile
Click on Email and configure your SIGNL4 team email address here.
Once that is in place you will then receive alerts to your SIGNL4 team each time a ticket is created. You can adjust the emails that are delivered within the ticketing settings.
ALERT OPTIMIZATION SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section. Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.
Change alert color and override title + text
Override text, colors and titles are triggered by keywords set within the mobile app.
