See how the new improvements to Teamwork Desk help you work more efficiently and stay on top of your tickets!

Our team has made some great new improvements to Teamwork Desk this month, and we’re excited to let you start using them! Today, we’re introducing our new look navigation bar, the super powered notification bell, ticket ID’s and more!

1. New Navigation Bar

Teamwork Desk has a fresh new look this month! We’ve moved your navigation bar to the top of your screen so you can be faster and more responsive when interacting with customers. This will also make it easier to work between Teamwork Desk and Teamwork Projects. Click on the video below to take your new navigation bar for a spin.

2. Super powered Notification Bell

Now you can easily keep up to date with tickets, notes, happiness ratings, your team’s activity and more with our new super powered notification bell. What are its superpowers, you ask?

  • Pin – The notification panel has an awesome function which allows you to pin selected notifications to the top of your panel to action or read later. You can also filter by pinned notifications to search them easily
  • Notifications Filter – Allows you to filter notifications you receive from specific inboxes. This helps teams to stay focused on notifications that are relevant to them
  • Search – Allows you to quickly filter notifications to your specific search term
  • Options – Within this you can choose to mark all notifications as read and there is also an option to open your my profile notifications as above

The good news is, the notification bell also saves all your read notifications so that you can search or reference them as needed.

3. Ticket ID Setting Added

Many of our users say they often need customers to reference a support ticket ID number when they’re communicating via email or over the phone. Previously, only agents could view ID numbers on support tickets, as Teamwork Desk is invisible to customers. We have now introduced an option to automatically include the ticket ID in the subject of all correspondence with customers. This will make workflows much easier for agents who need customers to quote ticket IDs.

To activate this feature, go to company settings and choose include ticket number under message settings. When enabled, all emails to customers will include the ticket number at the start of the subject. Note: This setting can only be changed by the account admin.

4. Enhanced Notification Preferences

We want to make sure you never miss an important update on your tickets, so we’ve added new notification options! Now you can subscribe to receive notifications when:

  • Ticket priority changes
  • Ticket status changes
  • Ticket inbox changes
  • A task is added to a ticket
  • A task is completed on a ticket
  • Happiness rating are updated

You can view the full menu via your notification preferences, which can be accessed by clicking on the three dots on the top right hand side of your notification panel.

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your feedback!
I’ve passed your request onto our development team and they will look at implementing this 🙂
Hope that helps!



LOVE all the new enhancements that Desk is implementing.

I would also really LOVE if when I turned on AUTO-REPLY that it would send the AUTO REPLY to clients that we are out of the office when when replying to an EXISTING ticket.

Currently we notify our clients when we will be out of the office IE Thanksgiving holidays but if they reply back to a current ticket and do not receive the AUTO-REPLY that we are out of the office then they may be wondering why, as they may have forgotten that we are out the day before and day after Thanksgiving.

If the AUTO-REPLY went our to ALL tickets, now or exiting tickets, that would be fabulous.


While you are working on ALL of these improvements please enhance how you work inside tickets related to which messages have been sent etc. Right now if you send a reply to someone and then change which customer/person that ticket is associated with it looks like you actually replied to that new customer rather than the original person. Definitely need to do some work around replies/forwards and how customer tickets are displayed when changed. Overall this is our biggest Teamwork Desk frustration so hopefully you are working to enhance workflow messaging. ALL of the other Helpdesk systems we have used do a much better job of handling replies, forwards, etc. Happy to show you what I mean if you want more details.

Hi Denny,

Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.

I’ll share your feedback with the development team to see how we can improve replies and forwards, as well as how customer tickets are displayed when changed going forward.
