In the older version we were using (v6.25), if we open an Issue, its initial status is “Open”. And when we send an email from that Issue, the status is automatically updated to “Replied”.
Now, we have switched to v10. But in the same scenario - Issue doc is opened by system user - when we send an email from that Issue, the status remains “Open”, and we have to manually update it to replied.
We’d like to have the same behavior as the v6.25 - the automatic update to status Replied upon sending of an email. I can’t seem to find a configuration setting for this. I’ve also tried searching here in the forums and in Google. But no luck so far.
Help, anyone? Is there a setting for this somewhere? Or do I have to use a custom script to get this behavior?
The change came out of the use case that replied emails aren’t often closed, the issue can remain open even if there is a temporary reply, which would cause an unresolved issue to get removed from the ‘Open’ status and lose track. But if it is resolved, it would be the resolver’s judgment as to consiously close it or set it to ‘Replied’.
So as it was an intended feature, the required behavior can be done with a custom script.
Thanks for that info @pratu16x7. I had the feeling this is somehow the new intended behavior really.
Anyway, would you be able to point me at the right direction for the scripting? I’ve been able to implement some custom scripts on a couple of custom doctypes, so I have a little idea about events. But what event would be triggered when an email has been sent from a doc?
Thanks for this explanation though I don’t think it’s the ideal approach. Updating Status of an Issue to ‘Replied’ should be automatic once an email is sent. Alternatively, there should have been a switch in Support Settings for the user to decide if they want this behavior or not. I think this needs to be fixed if it hasn’t been already
