The Visual SLA timer is extremely cool and URHCS would definitely assist with any beta opportunities.

Thanks

The removal of access to the Ideas page (previously used for customer feedback and voting purposes) is a step backward IMHO.

I used the Chat function to indicate that the Change request forms need the same notification functions for Notes and Approver comments, which otherwise sit there unnoticed.  Apparently that request had 3 votes before the Ideas page was removed from public view.  Now we (customers) cannot understand the process by which the next "Idea" is chosen and progressed.  So be it, but please put it on the roadmap to align the interfaces consistently.  Change requests Notes also don't have the @username function - just make them Comments instead so we can react to challenges to the Change Request - we have hundreds, and currently it's a manual check - that's surely not intended by the dev team?

I would love to participate in your Beta program.  A priority matrix would be a great addition whereby we can set the Impact and the Urgency to auto generate a Priority, or manually override the priority.

Agree with @acteonjon , @ mentions should be added to any of the comment fields.  We're adding a ton of solutions, and it would be great to mention one of our other team members so they get a notification to review and approve.  Thanks!

Is there a timeline or ETA on Ticket Templates option to be created?

Forgive my lack of knowledge, and expertise with this product.   How difficult is it to assign to external queues or other ticketing software.  Example working with Vendors.  We might have a MSP or a vendor co-supported application or system which we take tickets fro our system, and assign them to a queue where it forwards to their system for processing, when they close out their tickets and it notifies us and closed ours.  Can this do that?
