HotH Teams Bot *New And Improved!*


For the past year and a half, MS Teams has become an integral part of business. As a result, we have accelerated the development of our very own Teams integration even further – with HotHBot V2!

HotHBot V2

HotHBot V2 allows you to effortlessly categorise your tickets, in a format that is similar to what you use HotH. Select a Customer / End-User, choose a Type, Status & Priority and away you go – clicking OK on the form will instantly generate a ticket for you!

How to HotH –  #Mail API

Mail API Logo

The Mail API allows service desk agents to set ticket properties in the body of an email when creating a new ticket or responding to an existing ticket.

Key Features:

  • Easy to use and switch on
  • Ignored if sent by an end-user

How It Works:

Enable the Commands

To use these commands, House-on-the-Hill needs to enable #Mail API.

Create the Mail Read Form

Navigate using Settings > Email Settings, Type=Email Read Forms

An Email Read Form must exist in the required format

The Process

If the body of an incoming email contains a valid # control it will update that setting on the ticket. The incoming email address must correspond to a person permitted to update the ticket.

Available Controls
