Reliable Alerting and On-call Management for Freshservice
Freshservice is the sleek SaaS IT helpdesk 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 Freshservice 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 Freshservice supports the retrieval as well as the update of ticket information.

Integration via Connector App
The Freshservice connector app makes 2-way integration with Freshservice a a child’s play and responding to service desk tickets can be done conveniently via the SIGNL4 mobile app. The following steps describe how to configure the integration.
