The communications workflow button inside the Ticket Details gives you the option to communicate with your target audience in different ways.
The communications workflow button contains the Info button, the email button, and the SMS button (only Enterprise).

The communications workflow button inside the Ticket Details

The Info button (which can be triggered after using the communications workflow button) allows you to set a Ticket Info, which will be visible under Ticket Info and in the Ticket header of Ticket Details to inform cross-platform about special on-goings of a particular ticket.
All these options help to inform a special target audience about important on-goings of a particular ticket.

Depending on which one you select the ticket info is addressed differently.
Almost every ticket info type can be configured as acknowledgeable inside Work Place (generally spoken).
Every ticket info type will be visible inside the Ticket History tab.
Please do not confuse “ticket info” with “Attachment Notes”.

  1. Click on the communications workflow button.
  2. Select Info from the context menu.
  3. In the Ticket info type field, select one of the following ticket info reasons, each serving a different purpose and having a different audience.

About HTML formatting

HTML formatting is supported inside COMS and email templates.
You may not be able to see a "Preview" with the HTML formatting for now, however, when emails are sent out the HTML formatting will be visible to end customers.

Please pay attention to use the correct HTML declaration and scheme for emails in the body field:
HTML
				<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">
