smartQ interface is now available in Ukrainian! 

In support of Ukraine, all new accounts from Ukraine will remain free till the end of hostilities — simply contact our support to qualify.

With that, smartQ is available in 11 languages now.

Want to see smartQ translated into your language? Any smartQ user can contribute (including the free trial accounts) — just use the “Options” menu on the top of your smartQ screen. There is a link there called “Translation Area” that will take you to the public translation area.

We just added the possibility to create new Rules based on the “Deadline Changed” condition — it will help you stay on top of your deadlines!

For over eleven years now, we have been helping a wide range of organizations from small local businesses to big companies around the world to manage their workload.

This year is a challenging one, with many teams working remotely, but smartQ is here to help!

Expect new exciting features and a brand new design!

We would like to thank all our clients for their support! You can find us on FacebookTwitter.

When you receive email notifications from smartQ (for example, when a person notifies you about a new ticket or a new note), and you reply to that email — it is posted back to the ticket in smartQ as a new Note.

But, in some cases, especially when the notification was sent to more people, you may want to also notify them by email as well about your reply.

For this purpose, we introduced a new flag: “Deliver email responses to all Notified people”. When turned on, it will deliver email responses (to smartQ email notifications) to all originally notified people.

For a full list of keyboard shortcuts use Ctrl + /.

For over ten (!) years now, we have been helping a wide range of organizations from small local businesses to big companies around the world to manage their workload.

This year is a challenging one, with many teams working remotely, but smartQ is here to help!

Expect new exciting features and a redesign!

We just added the links to easily switch to the previous or next ticket on the board, without leaving the ticket view.

New Tags positioning options

Do you use many tags and they are pushing your ticket names too far? Now there is a solution for that — you can now change the placement of your tags:

This setting applies to all the main views — Dashboard, Board and List views — and General Report.

Custom fields

We just expanded our CSV/Excel import function to support custom fields. Now you can import into smartQ tickets with custom columns, and match them to custom smartQ fields.

For all those who are doing their part by social physical distancing and working from home, here are a few tips to keep you organized and to work smarter, not harder, with smartQ.

1. Create a morning routine

Start the day right and make it a habit.
Enable Deadline Reminders and have smartQ email you in the morning the list of your tickets due that day.

2. Overcommunicate

Remember that people do not routinely walk by your cubicle or see you by the water cooler to ask what you are up to. Keep everyone informed what you are working on and use confirmations often. 

Post Notes for your team into tickets and use email notifications when needed. List View and Dashboard allows your team to keep track of all the new notes across all tickets in a project or across all projects.

3. Establish smart workflows with automation 

Creating efficient workflows can streamline your work and keep you on track. Use smartQ Automation to set smart triggers and rules — like getting emails when a ticket is moved to a specific column or when it was not updated for a long time.

4. Be involved and proactive

Being away from your team does not mean you have to be secluded from them.
Stay on top of who is doing what by enabling User Logs in smartQ.

5. Use the right tools

From emails and chats to phone calls and video conferences — use the right tools for the right occasion. smartQ will serve your team as the ticket management tool as well as communication and file sharing hub.

Check smartQ Email integration to see how you can use those tools together.
Also, check smartQ Slack Integration, if your team is on it.

Stay positive and don’t forget to have some fun. Have an Alexa device? Check smartQ Skill for Alexa.

Stay safe and keep productive!
