Forwarding an email into the support system

Hello,

I am new to Live Agent, and we seem to be having trouble getting emails into the support system from an inbox. Regularly my CEO will get an email from a customer that needs to be transferred to support, however when we have tested this, forwarding or CCing the message to the support inbox marks the sender as the recipient to the response, not the person who initially sent the message. Is there a setting or automation to tell the support inbox to treat the initial sender as the recipient for response to the ticket?

Hello there Lucas,

I am sorry but LiveAgent currently doesn't have an option for what you're looking for, there is no easy way to forward email from external inbox to a mail account which is connected in LiveAgent and have the original sender set as the owner and recipient in the resulting ticket.

LiveAgent will set the owner of the ticket to the email address recognized in From or Reply To email headers, this can be defined in Configuration->Email->Email settings->Conversation owner.

We have a suggestion reported that would treat emails forwarded from email addresses of people created as agents in LiveAgent differently and set the original sender as owner of the ticket, however there is no ETA when this will be implemented.

Hello,

This is a pretty common feature across every other support desk we've used -- it's a critical asset for our agents/customer service managers/account managers to forward customer emails and have tickets created appropriately. Typically, it looks for the first 'from' email if there's a FWD prepended to the subject.

What's the process for submitting a feature request?
