Users can now also have global custom fields that are shared over all that users tickets. This can be used to note information for a user that can be displayed with all their tickets.
A new set of features have been created to allow groups of users to share tickets on a support portal. Each group has several permission options to allow the users to view, reply or close the tickets of other members. Group administrators can add new users in the group, and change the permissions of the existing members. Shared tickets can be set to email all users that the ticket is visible to when emails are send.
Tickets can also now have other users added to them on a per ticket basis. This allows a user to add in other users on a specific ticket.
