After Hours email

Our desk is not open 24/7 so in on our current system we have a different email template that gets sent to the customer outside of businsss hours versus the one that is sent when we are operational. I’m going through the configuration for our Jira Service Desk and we’re looking for something that would give us the same/similar option. Any ideas?

Hi Kevin,

Did you try using the Automation - Send Email for that scenario?


Hi Susan, 

I looked in Automation for that and I'm sure that would work but how would I be able to have it look at the Calendar?

Hi Kevin,

So Trigger would be issue created.  You would need to have a response SLA that starts running when the issue is created that is tied to your desk hours.

This filter:

"Response Time" != withinCalendarHours()

Will find any requests raised outside of the regular hours. 

Hope that helps...Susan

Hi Susan, 

Thanks! Now to figure out why the 'Response Time' field is on our development configuration but not our production one..hmm

Response Time is just a name of a SLA.   IT's one of the out of the box ones, but you can certainly remove, rename, customize....

So maybe the development one was removed, renamed...
