Desktop is robust but app needs work

I use this daily for my job on my laptop. I downloaded the app for the convenience if mobility... however one major issue is assigning tickets. On the desktop version, I can assign just fine. In the mobile app, it let me assign the first ticket... but after that, all the assign names were gone... so back to the desktop I go.

It’s also missing an easy view of unreads/active tickets. That would be helpful to have.

Developer Response ,

Hey Rainbow dash42, thanks for your review. We're having trouble reproducing the same behaviour on this end, would you mind touching base with us via our support address and we'll send over instructions on how to record what you're seeing? If there's a bug we'd be happy to get that fixed up! We also have the feedback regarding unread/active convos logged, and we'll keep you in the loop if there's any update there. Look forward to receiving your message!

Great but notifications are amiss

It does what it’s supposed to do, however my biggest issue is notifications. Yes I have all of the right settings turned on. I have to physically go into the app in order to see any messages and more often than not I miss them by several hours. Rendering my customer service to be poor.

I’d love for badge icons to be set at the very least!

Developer Response ,

Hey there friend. We have logged your request for badge icons to be supported and we'll keep you updated here on the App Store if we happen to provide that as an update down the line. We'd love to talk with you about your mobile notifications directly, would you be able to drop an email to our support mailbox so that we're able to talk through your current experience in depth? You can also touch base with us via the in-app Beacon under Get Help. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Good UI, but no feature parity

Only good for responding. You can’t see even basic data about the tickets, including email addresses, but less any integration data. Almost useless until it has full feature parity with the web version. I have no idea why companies release gimpy apps without feature parity, but it seems to be a common trend, unfortunately. Supposedly an improved version is in the works, but who knows when that will roll out 😖

Developer Response ,

Hi D2Rhino. Just an update to let you know that with our most recent release on the App Store (v1.21.0) you're able to view (and copy) the customer email address under the Details section on every customer response. I hope this update helps you support your customers quicker -- we've some bigger changes still to come with customer profiles but let us know if you have any other requests!
