Automated rules can be triggered by SLAs. If an issues is pending due to lacking information from the customer, an automated rule can send a comment as a reminder if there is an SLA for customer replies.

Live Queues

Service teams are now able to see at once which issues are still in a certain queue. Even more important: The team knows when new  issues are coming in. The live queues offer numeric indicators that refresh automatically.



There are several improvements regarding themes and color branding of the customer portal. After uploading a company logo (The new version now also supports round logos!) JIRA Service Desk will take over and match the remaining colors of the portal to the logo.

When an employee is working in the agent view of a customer inquiry, he or she no longer needs to use wiki markup to format the comment. JIRA Service Desk now offers the editor toolbar for rich text known from Confluence.
