Once the New Agent form pops up, you must enter at least a first name and email address to save the new agent. The agent will receive an invite to get signed in once you click Save.

What is my Tenant ID?

To find your Company/Tenant ID, navigate to Settings, and click on Tenant.

Here, directly under the name you selected for your company's account, you will see the Tenant ID.

Billing and licensing access from iPhone and iPad

To help reduce the cost of our service and avoid app store fees,  there is no way for agents to manage licenses and billing through the iPhone or iPad applications. A super user can sign in using their browser to manage these options under Billing.

Convert back to free account

In order to convert back to a free account, navigate to billing and click 'Convert to free account', then click on 'Save changes'.

Email to Task/Ticket Setup

Step 1

To set up an email to task, you must forward emails from your mailbox to [email protected] from your existing mailbox. Simply configure a forward, a mailbox rule, or a transport rule to forward all emails or specific emails that match your rule.

Step 2

After you forward emails from your mailbox to our ticketing, you now need to claim that email in the Vertask portal. 

Navigate over to Settings > Integrations and Add-ons > Email to Task

  • Click New
  • Enter the email address you forwarded in the form
  • Click Configure
  • You will be sent a verification code to the email address you forwarded. Click the link to verify ownership.

Step 3

Once you click the verification link, validate that the config shows's 'verified' at the top.

Step 4 (optional)

On the same page, you can also configure additional properties, such as

  • Permissions - agents or groups the emails tickets will be assigned to
  • Enable or disable the rule
  • Auto-create clients - create the sender if they do not exist. If disabled, a ticket will not be created if the sender does not exist.
  • Invite auto-created clients to portal - if you enable the 'Auto-create clients' options, you can choose to auto-invite them to the client portal after being created.
  • You can also delete the email config completely.

Email to Task/Ticket Troubleshooting

To troubleshoot email-to-task issues, you can use the logs to see what is happening behind the scenes. Search the records for the email address you forwarded.

Email to Task/Ticket - Block Sender

Since we only process emails you forward, you can block and senders you do not want to create tickets using your own mailbox settings, or by excluding the emails from your email rules.
