- delete tickets.
You can perform a global search of the tickets.
Efficient search algorithm. Search within all the fields of the tickets. Results are sorted by relevance.
Archive of Tickets
Tickets which do not require any actions from the agents (such as waiting for an answer from a customer or are closed), can be easily moved to the archive. Hence, you'll be only left with the tickets which are located in the main list of the tickets and require answers from agents.
You can adjust extension settings in order to specify status under which your ticket will be automatically moved into the archive. Also you can set up the workflow rules in order to enable automatic redirection of a ticket to or from the archive.
Working with Tickets
- Agent can link a ticket with a customer and his order. This feature works for registered and non-registered customers.
- Agent can use quick responses (predefined templates of answers)
- Agent can use CC, BCC for ticket emails New
- Agent can see a source of ticket.
- Agent is able to add tags to ticket.
- Agent can add an internal comment (customer won’t be able to see it).
- Agent can see/edit values of the custom fields.
- Agent can setup the Follow Up feature. This feature enables automatic sending of an email notification to Agent as well as a change of status, priority, owner of the ticket after some specified period of time.
- Agent is able to check the list of other tickets for this customer.
- Agent is able to see whether another agent is responding to a current ticket. New
- Every agent can setup own their signature for emails. Signature can include html tags and images. New
Conversation with Third Parties Must Have
Agent can send emails to third parties and receive the answers from them on the ticket page. These messages can contain a conversation with the suppliers, shipping company, etc. Conversations can be public or private. Customers will see public conversations in the ticket history. Private conversations will be visible only for agents.
List of tickets in the customer/order edit page
Agent can open the customer page in the backend and check all the tickets available for their customer.
He can also open the order page in the backend and check all the tickets which are connected with the current order.
Satisfaction Surveys Must Have
Help Desk MX allows you to insert a block with the satisfaction survey into an email with the agent reply. Customers will be able to evaluate the reply quality by clicking the smiley upon receiving such an email. They will also be able to add a comment in addition to the chosen smiley.
The agent will receive an email containing the customer feedback. He will be able to improve the quality of his work based on this feedback.
There will be collective list of all customer feedbacks in the backend. Therefore, you will be able to draft a customer satisfaction report.
Features for Administrator
Mailboxes Must Have
You can connect your mailboxes to the help desk (e.g. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com). Help Desk will regularly check them and fetch the emails. Emails will be converted to new tickets or answers will be added to the existing tickets.
Your employees will be able to fully correspond with customers through the Help Desk, therefore they will be able to work in a more efficient way.
- You can connect any number of mailboxes.
- Emails from different mailboxes can be automatically assigned to the different departments and store views.
2-way email parsing
A customer or agent can answer the ticket without needing to visit the store, because providing a response to the email via the email client will suffice. Help desk will receive the email with an answer, attach it to the right ticket, and forward it further on.
- Support of IMAP/POP3, SSL
Every ticket can be assigned to a department. The customer can select a department for the new ticket.

- It is possible to add/edit/remove quick responses.
- They can be assigned to the store views.
- It is possible to use different ticket's variables in the template.
Signatures for Email
You can setup a signature for each agent and help desk will automatically add the signature to the outgoing emails. Signatures can include HTML tags (e.g. you can add a photo of your agent).
Custom Fields Must Have
Custom Fields allow to customize the help desk as required. You can create any number of fields for storing all the ticket-related information.
- Different types of custom fields (text, dropdown list, checkbox, calendar).
Fields can be displayed in the following places:
- Customer account.
- Ticket creation form.
- Contact us form.
- Contact us popup.
- Customer or agent may be required to fill in the field.
- Multilingual support
The extension allows to configure the different access permissions for the agents from different departments.
Workflow Rules Must Have
Workflow rules allow you to configure the Help Desk algorithm in a unique way. You create the rule which will be executed once a certain event is initiated. When the rule is executed, it will check out whether certain conditions are fulfilled, and then it will run the execution of specified actions granting a positive outcome of such an operation.
Workflow rules can be executed when one of the following events is initiated:
- New ticket has been created.
- New reply from a customer has come in.
- New reply from staff has come in.
- New reply from a third party has come in.
- Ticket has been assigned to the agent.
- Ticket has been changed.
- Every hour checked by cron.
- Workflow rules can check the fulfillment of the ticket fields with regard to the completion of certain conditions.
If conditions are fulfilled, then workflow rules will run the execution of specified actions such as:
- Status change of a ticket
- Priority change of a ticket
- Department change of a ticket
- Change of an owner of the ticket
- Change of the ticket tags
- Move the ticket to the archive.
- Workflow rules can send notification emails to the owner of the ticket/all department's agents/customer.
Examples of Usage
- Notifies the store owner if a ticket has not been answered for 3 days
- Set status to 'In Progress' upon receipt of the first reply from the support team
- Close ticket and send notification in case of not getting reply from a customer within 30 days.
This feature allows you to analyze the following data:
- Number of New Tickets.
- Number of Changed Tickets.
- Number of Replies.
- Number of Solved Tickets.
- Time of the 1st Reply.
- Full Resolution Time.
- Number of Received Votes (Great/OK/Bad).

- Response Rate.
All reports will enable full analysis of the information. In particular, you will be able to process and sort information by every store department or every member of the support team. Reports also include graphics, which can be used to analyze the dynamics of changes in a very convenient way.
Integration with Mirasvit RMA Extension
This feature allows you to convert the tickets into RMA requests. Let us assume that a customer sends an email to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Help Desk receives this email and converts it into a ticket. The agent can convert this ticket into the RMA request by clicking the button named Convert to RMA. After converting to RMA all further emails for this ticket will be automatically forwarded to the RMA extension and all communication will go there.
- The ability to customize the email templates through the admin interface messages
- Effective spam protection
- Protection from a hanging helpdesk due to recursive email fetching New

Excellent Help Desk MX!!!Paulo from Uberlândia, BrazilHello visitors, give up searching for Supplier Help Desk module, this module Mirasvit is the best available for Magento. After we tried several others, we stopped at Mirasvit no doubt this is the best and most complete module for this purpose available for Magento. We are Customer Mirasvit from 2 years ago. Congratulations, Mirasvit is excellent.
Revolutionized our customer contactsTim from Holland, United StatesOur old system of just replying to customer emails was a mess. It was always a pain to go back and find our contact history with any one customer. Now it is all centralized in one place - and the search function works great. Also, eliminates the problem of missing emails if they get accidentally routed as spam. Customers are happy and we can track issues and solve problems. We use it with the RMA extension also so we can easily initiate returns if necessary. Also a great alternative to the cloud contact guys out there, where you have to pay per user.
Really good stuffMA from Melbourne, AustraliaMakes support much more manageable and declutters things. Also allows to be on top of issues and relevant people aware of them.
One of the best extensions we haveDaniel from Halstead, United KingdomHaving used this extension for over a year it has been irreplaceable for communicating with customers.Being able to manage customers into different departments and keeping tack of conversations over days/ weeks and longer makes this one of top used extensions that we wouldn't want to be without. we are now planning the move over to Magento 2 and this will certainly be on the list. In addition the customer support is outstanding, I rate them very highly.
Perfect extension for Helpdesk within MagentoMayank from Bengaluru, IndiaThe extension is good if you wanted to allow customers to post tickets linked to their account. No need to have a separate login for posting tickets.
RUN, don't walk, to get this extension!!Alphonse from Lincoln, United StatesIn bad need of help organizing and categorizing our messaging torrent, we carefully evaluated several Help Desk solutions, both external apps/services and Magento extensions.
With three completely independent online stores, plus eBay and Amazon presences, each with several associated email mailboxes, the chances for errors when managing customers inquiries/comments/requests are enormous. Remembering which customer asked what and when, and who responded how and when, always making sure that "Store A" doesn't reply to questions from "Store B" customers using the "Store C" email template, takes a lot of effort.
So we reviewed our choices carefully. The usual evaluation criteria: cost, value, feature set, ease of use, vendor reputation, etc. And, frankly, we're so glad we chose Mirasvit's Help Desk MX!
Whoever has installed Magento extension knows that not everything that shines is gold. All of them look great "on paper," but sometimes they either break something else or don't work as expected. Not this one: It does what it promises, it just works as expected.
In a nutshell:
- easy to install (it's a breeze)
- intuitive to use
- saves work and prevents errors
- makes your small business look like a multi-million corporation
- flexible and customizable
- can't beat the price/value ratio
- haven't come across any bugs so far
And then comes their technical support, which deserves a special mention. Right after installing the extension, I noticed a problem with a couple of screens in one of our sites (which, by the way, uses an attractive but quite finicky theme). These problems were not the extension's fault, as it works just fine on our other two stores with different themes. But I contacted Mirasvit support and they fixed the issues in no time. I also had overlooked an additional issue during testing (also the extension not being the culprit) and they fixed it right away as well. I was very impressed by their immediate understanding of what the issues were. No ruber-stamped answers, no IFs, BUTs, or "We'll get back to you one of these days". They just got to work and fixed it. Like in the good old days of customer service. All politely communicated in excellent English, a rare commodity these days. In short: Outstanding technical support.
The only weak spot of the extension may be the online User Manual, which is somewhat skimpy and devoid of illustrations. But frankly, the extension is so easy and intuitive to use that... who needs a manual!!
Fantastic utility. I would give it 6 stars if I could!
Works great.Bert from Cipayung, IndonesiaThis solution is a great alternative to paid online ticket system. Very easy to use and a lot of features. Work as expected :-)
Good extensionValerio from Voghera, ItalyExtension works well.
Not easy to convince customer to stop calling by phone but this extension is a good help
Excellent ProductSegun from Manchester, United KingdomIt's just exactly what you need in a customer support ticketing system. Well done guys.
Great Solution For Growing BusinessJosh from St. Augustine, United StatesWe used to use standard email and outlook for our support with clients. We needed an improvement and something integrated with the admin backend to save time from bouncing back and forth when assisting clients. We found this ext and were amazed by the features and time savings actions which hugely cuts down on our labor involved with assisting clients with issues. This is integrated with their RMA system which we also installed and overall a huge time saver when assisting clients with inquiries, rma's, etc. Also the quick responses are great for easy canned responses for common inquiries. We are actually about to also install their Knowledge Base ext as that is also integrated with the Help Desk and will further cut down on our inquires. Support is amazing here, long time client with many of their ext's installed. They are always there with quick fixes for any issues we have encountered@!

Customer support as it should beSven from Dortmund, GermanyThe Help Desk extension is one of the most useful extension for our business. Before we used the extension, we were doing support by just plain email and this lead to the situation, that sometimes emails were overseen. This can't happen now anymore which increases customer satisfaction. Additionally the extension has many good and well thought features which are very useful. We won't miss it anymore!
Robust and efficient extension, amazing customer supportSergiy from Montreal, CanadaWe have been looking for an extension that will help us to provide a better service and support to our external clients.

good extention from mirasvit teamamjath from Thiruvananthapuram, Indiathis extension is very useful for customer satisfaction. here our customers mail to us and we can manse all query at one place.
We use this Every Daybrady from Memphis, United StatesThis has made managing support issues so much easier. The best thing is that it is all managed right inside of the Magento Admin so there's no need to have customer service logging into another management application to handle all customer related concerns. It also allows everyone to see historical customer interactions which has helped resolve a number of issues on the phones and reduce support times.

Solid, Well-Written ExtensionMike from United StatesI've installed thousands of dollars of Magento extensions over the last few months and almost all of them came with a slew of headaches. While this extension will take some time to wrap your head around (because it is so feature rich), it is worth twice what it costs. The quality of the Mirasvit code cannot be understated. I am a developer and I respect the pride they take in their work. The code is solid and it "just works." Great job guys! Mike

Great extension and SupportSergio from United StatesVery fast reply directly with the requested solution.
The value of help deskAndrea from United StatesUsually everybody is concentrated on sales, but the real road to success is the customer satisfaction and service offered. With Mirasvit Help Desk MX you have a powerful instrument to manage all your customers' requests in a clear and effective way. Easier than a chat, less expensive in human resources, more effective in problem solving.
Technically this is a great piec of code: I installed it with any problem on my modded magento 1.8. The only suggestion I feel to give is to make the pop up responsive as it does not display properly on small screens as smartphones. I just added a line to make the button on the left disappear under 990px resolution (thanks to my theme).
Great extension superb supportDavid from United StatesWe are using five extensions developed by Mirasvit. This is our newest addition. After testing Zendesk we decided to use Help Desk MX. It does everything that zen does, but better. I would high recommend it. Support is the best in the business.
Must have extensionSteve from United StatesWe're very happy with the quality of Help Desk MX. Features are well-designed and work perfectly.
