Sometimes (or all of the time) you want to be able to answer tickets from your email inbox. And you can!
Turn on your notifications
You can reply directly to ticket notifications. To update your notifications settings, click you avatar in the admin menu -> Click "Notifications" in the drop down menu.
You'll see your current notification settings. "My Tickets" will send you notifications for all tickets assigned to you or that you're subscribed to. All Tickets, will send you notifications for all new tickets created. You'll also see the option to subscribe to specific queues.
Select which ticket notifications you want to subscribe to and save your settings.
Quick Note: You can only respond to a ticket notification from an admin email address. If you respond from a non-admin address the system will see it as an end user reply and it won't send it to the customer. This can also happen if your admin email address is an alias or a distribution list.
How to respond to a ticket notificationWhen you get a ticket notification, hit "Reply" on the email. Type out your answer, and then send.
When you respond to a notification, your response will first be sent to your UserVoice account. Your message will be recorded as part of the ticket thread, your answer sent onto the customer, and the ticket closed.
