New Features and Enhancements in ServiceDesk Plus 11.005

ServiceDesk Plus Version 11005
Released on 7 November, 2019

ServiceDesk Plus Version 11.005 (11005) has introduced some helpful new features and enhancements. Read on to find out what they are and they can help.


Request Details Page Customisation

ServiceDesk Plus Version 11.005 gives you the ability to customise the ‘request details’ layout. This enables you to re-organise all fields in the right panel, as well as Resolution, Tasks, Worklogs, Approvals, Dependencies, and much more. Consequently, reading requests at a glance is now much easier.

Global Field and Form Rules

You are now able to create field and form rules that are common to all incident and service templates. In addition, you can modify and manage these rules via a new option in the admin section. This can prove especially helpful when handling duplicate rules over multitudes of templates.

Backup Approver

Version 11.005 makes it possible to add a backup approver to the workflows, so when an approver is away your requests are less likely to be held up.

Other New Features/Enhancements

  • From version 11.005 multiple SLAs can be set for service templates, helping you improve customer service.
  • You can now send and fetch a sample email within the mail server settings, making it easier to test your configuration.
  • It is possible to customise the self-service portal further with newly added themes.
  • Copying and converting incident templates into service templates is now possible.
  • Technicians with the SDOrgadmin role can now view the support logs, therefore enabling them to troubleshoot certain issues without going on to the application server.
