Global Event Sending Canned-Reply Doesn't Replace Variable Tokens
Idea shared by Ben Santiardo - October 9, 2018 at 5:42 AM
Declined
I have a Global Event set to kick off an Auto-Close Notification to a ticket creator if the ticket is idle for 10 days. Inside the Canned-Reply being used, I am using the Variable Tokens #subject# and #ticketnumber#. These tokens are not being replaced when sent out.

Using: ST v14.0.6743.14154 

Bug?

At this time SmarterTrack does not support variables in the canned replies. I changed this thread to an Idea to gauge community interest.

Wait, if it is not supported, then why are you showing the list of variables when selecting "Canned Reply". That's totally misleading.

P.S. I don't seem to be getting E-Mails to any comments added to this thread even though my settings are set to be informed.

I'm not replying about the issue reported, but just to say that we never were able to receive a notification when a reply occured on a subscribed thread on here.

I've already reported this in different threads and saw other people having the issue, but it was never fixed since a couple of months (years?)....

I used to without fail, yesterday was when I noticed it wasn't working. However, they must have fixed it because I just received notification of your post above Nicolas.

Ben,

It looks like the variable list is being shown incorrectly for the Send Canned Reply event action type. I have added this to our internal tracking system to be corrected.

The ability to add variables to canned replies would be great.

After internal discussion, we have decided not to implement this feature. The canned replies and variables used in event actions are currently designed as isolated systems.

Instead, we suggest using the Send Reply to Ticket event action instead of the Send Canned Reply action. This will allow you to use variables.
