|"Assign to" Change|
|Notes Changes ("Notes added" in Classic)|
|New Service Record|
|New Service Record with selected Priority (Low/Normal/High/Very High/Highest)|

* Admins can define (through multi-select) which Status Change values trigger Notifications:
- You can choose to attach a link to your survey to the automatic email notification sent when you close a Service Record
- If the Submit user was an end user (e.g. the end user opened the service record from the End-User Portal), both them and the Request User will receive the Notification
- To use SMS notifications, you must first configure SMS integration, and then put in your administrators' Text Message number
- If a SR has no assigned Admin, you can select one or more Admins to receive the SMS or Email Notification using the three dots icons
- If the "Low" Priority level is set as a Notification trigger, the recipient will receive a Notification for every SR that is opened
Default Value for Impact and Urgency Fields
You can define default values for a Service Record's Impact and Urgency Fields (Low/Normal/High/Very High/Highest) which will impact all new Service Records submitted to the Service Desk (unless otherwise specified by the Admin).
Default Value for Closed Status Field
You can set a default Closed Status to populate the Close Status field when it hasn't been populated.
Currently, this is only relevant for the SysAid mobile apps.
Title Field Suggestions
You can enable auto suggestions from the Knowledge Base for when users (End Users, Admins, or both) are populating the Title Field.
You can configure one or more Knowledge Base Fields to derive the suggestions from (Title, Question, and Answer).
You can also specify words for the Search to exclude from its results.
Limit Knowledge Base Article Access
You can limit Knowledge Base article access to be defined by Category access so that Admins and end users can only access each article if they have access to its associated Category.
Automatic Service Record Behaviors
You can activate a number of Service Record behaviors by enabling the triggers listed in the table below.
|User Action||Automatic Result|
|Admin closes a Service Record that they're not assigned||Ask Admin if they want to assign it to themselves|
|Admin re-assigns Service Record to themselves||Ask Admin if they want to reset the Service Record's Escalation Level|
|Request User or Category Fields updated||Routing Rules reapplied|
|Request User updated||Change SLA|
|Change/Problem/Request Service Record (ITSM only) duplicated||Reset Action Item Status|
|Change created linked to an Incident (ITSM only)||Change Incident Status|
|Service Record closed||All Action Items automatically closed|
|Chat Session||Log as a Service Record Activity|
For each of these three Service Record Types, one Status value can be chosen as the resulting Status:
- Verified Closed
- Reopened by End User
- User Responded
- Pending Problem Resolution
- Closed - AI
- New - AI-driven Service
- Pending User Response
SysAdmins with a valid AI license (“AI Admins”) can enable Generative AI Features in General Settings page.
Enable Third Level Categories
By default, SysAid displays two levels of categories. Select this option to enable a third level of categories.
Display the automatic notifications in messages
This determines whether you will by default see automatic messages in service records. If you have this option disabled, you can still see automatic messages by clicking Show automatic messages above the messages field.
Messages field from a service record
Allow changing of SR type from Incidents to Requests and vice versa
This enables you to change a request to an Incident and Change an Incident to a Request. You can access this option in the list view, when you click More Actions, or within the Service Record, when you click in the top-right corner.
