 When creating a new ticket in TaskFire , the ticket defaults back to the MSP’s queue instead of the clients task fire queue. For cases where you using TaskFire as an onsite tickeing system and clients can then elevate problems for you , you will need to create the following Workflow to move the ticket back to the clients taskfire system

When a ticket is Created by “External Contact”

And the following conditions are met:

Company Name is = {Company}

Then perform the following updates:

Queue name = {Client Portal}


Then transfer ticket to: Taskfire (if client has Taskfire enabled)

Complete Tickets not syncing between taskfire and autotask

When our client completes the ticket on their end, it does not change the status of the ticket within our Service Desk.

Go to Admin, Extension and Intergrations, Manage Clients, Manage Clients Tab, Choose the Client

Tick options :

i)Always set the Taskfire status to Complete when an escalated ticket is set to Complete by an Autotask resource.

ii)Always set the Autotask status to Complete when a ticket Transferred to Taskfire is set to Complete by the client.

Bulk Edit Tickets Delete/Modify/Notes/Assign

Queue = {Client portal}
