Saved replies can be set up in OneDesk for your agents to use. These saved replies allow your team to be able to respond faster to commonly asked customer inquiries by inserting pre-written responses. You can set up a repository of saved replies for your users to be able to make user of. Using saved replies can:

  • Save time your team would otherwise spend typing out responses
  • Ensure accuracy and consistency in answering common customer requests
  • Maintain company tone and voice
  • Avoid mistakes when writing customer names, item IDs, etc. thanks to dynamic properties

About Saved Replies


saved replies

Saved replies are global saved messages that any internal user within your company can use. Users are able to use the search to look through the repository of saved replies and find the one they need quickly.

These saved replies can have ‘dynamic properties’. These are properties that you can insert into the message, that will automatically populate information such as the ticket ID, the lifecycle status, and more. Read more about dynamic properties here.
