By configuring outgoing email integration in SysAid, you gain several important benefits:
- All emails sent from service records are saved as correspondence in the email message log, allowing you to review them later
- Service records can send automatic notifications to administrators and end users, both on the creation of a new service record, and when details within the service record are changed (either by an end user or by another administrator)
- You can enable email notifications for monitoring, software licenses, and reminders, allowing you to receive an instant update if there are any problems affecting your service desk
- Receive critical email updates about escalated service records
SysAid Basic Edition gives you one outgoing email address, and SysAid Full Edition allows you to create as many as you like. Multiple outgoing email addresses can be useful if you have multiple departments that use SysAid, for example [email protected] and [email protected].
To configure SysAid email integration, fill out the relevant fields using the table below and then click Save.
