Widget with REST API

Allow your users and clients to create issues and send messages from any page. Get contextual insights with autopopulate funtionality.

Before Helpdesk, we tried Jira, Zendesk, Freshdesk, OTRS and Zammad. Zendesk does not support local installation. Hosted storage has privacy issue or is very expensive with control of your data. All other systems also had other issues. So we decided to use Helpdesk plugin. Why? Price/functionality ratio is great, and the support gives fast responses with real solutions. What is more, it integrates well into Open Source infrastructure.

Customer information

Helpdesk is fully integrated with the Redmine Issues module and CRM plugin. Looking at an issue, you can see all customer information with tags, contact information, and previous customer tickets. All related contacts can be used to generate a CC list so you can send messages to them as well.


Reply directly from the Issues page

Respond to the ticket right from the Issues view page with one click. The reply will use header and footer templates with macros that can include the ticket ID or name and surname of the person who answered the message.


Turn issues into tickets

The Helpdesk plugin extends functionality of the Issues List so that you can use filters to effortlessly select all customer issues as well as a particular one. Plus, you can add new fields to the Issues Table with customer information and last ticket message copy.


Respond faster with autoresponders

You can create autoresponders for a customer’s first message and easily custimoze it with templates and styles, but that's not all. The response header and footer can be modified using customer, ticket, or user macros data.


Helpdesk Widget with API

With the Helpdesk Widget, your employees and customers can send inquiries or set tickets from any page inside or outside Redmine. You can also customize fields you want to be displayed as well as prepopulate them with content. It includes using the address of a page, status, product ID, and more.


Smart workflow automation

Apply automatic email processing to sort incoming messages based on a given rules and criteria. It updates the ticket fields if the conditions are met, so you can add High priority to messages with "Urgent" in their subject, or for email from a particular client. It can also move the ticket to another project if an email was sent from a particular client or domain.

What People Say About RedmineUP

Quote colin

We have over 50.000 issues and over 500 contacts in our Redmine. I like that the plugins are covering other processes as well, not only the ones related to the development process, and they are enabling various implementations or integrations. Regarding the business needs, I think that RedmineUP plugins are a good starting point.
