Now, on to what’s new in Mojo!

New: Auto-Assignment (Round Robin and Load-Balanced)

We’ve added a powerful new action in triggers, allowing admins to configure auto-assignment of tickets. It could either be round-robin, where assignment occurs in order and repeats in a cycle, or the other option is load-balanced, in which case the system takes into consideration each agent’s open tickets

Agents can also be noted as “on vacation” on their profile. In this case, they will be skipped in the auto-assignment.

New: Agent Teams

Before auto-assignment can be configured in a trigger, admins of the help desk will need to organize agents into teams. Teams are primarily used for auto-assignment, however you can expect more uses for this in the future. Note Agents can belong to multiple teams.

New: Users are now Contacts

Making sure we have a clear distinction between agents and contacts (formerly users), these two different user types can now be managed in separate areas.

Notice that the applicable settings for each type of user are also clearly categorized. The Agent section has the Agent list, Teams and Restricted Agents Rights. Meanwhile, Contacts contain the Contact list, Groups and Queue Access Rights.

New: Multiple Group Access for Contacts

Groups (for contacts) can be used for reporting and for ticket sharing. Within a group, a contact can be given permissions to view and comment on tickets entered by someone else in the same group. Groups are nothing new, however a contact could only see tickets in one group. Here’s where Group Access comes in. Managers of the help desk can grant group access to a contact for multiple groups.


Apart from these major features, here’s a few other improvements we released:

  • Ability to opt in to beta features in helpdesk configuration
  • New API for the Ticket Form List on GitHub
  • Ability to sort in the Aging Summary
  • Ability to update assets by import
  • Bulk action to add a staff note on the tickets view list
  • Ability to filter in advanced search for last comment by assignee
  • Ability to add files in the knowledge base
  • Increased the reporting period for the Dashboard to 1 year
  • New vacation flag on the agent profile
  • Various tweaks and fixes
