Something is brewing on the horizon.

With OTRS 3.2 just around the corner, I thought I would write this short post to prove: There are new things on the horizon, and you should come take a look!
As the beta 1 version is planned for release on 30 October 2012, I wanted to be the fist to bring you this screen shot:
What you see looks like the dashboard that you all know and love, but it is much more customer centric. The customer navigation menu now reveals a new option Customer Information Center:
When you select this, you will be asked for either the customer id, or customer user name.
Upon entering one of these, a search will be performed for all customer tickets, and the dashboard like module will provide you with a birds-eye view of the most important information, and extended functionality.
In the data rows of the Customer Users Section, you will see
- A list of valid users for this company
- The customer information
- How many open or closed tickets
- Links to create a new mail or phone ticket
The standard dashboard items available in the CIC are
- Customer Users
- Reminder Tickets
- Escalated Tickets
- New Tickets
- Open Tickets
- Customer Company Information *only available if the customer company feature is active
- Company Status
In the company status dashlet, you can see an overview count of all Escalated, Open, Closed and All tickets. The numbers are clickable, providing a search with the appropriate filters.
I hope this short overview will provide you with a hunger for more, and that you download the beta as soon as it is available.
