When updating the status of a request to be acknowledged or closed, there is typically some standard language to communicate the beginning of work or the arrival at a resolution. The canned messages feature allows government users to save preset text to populate the comment field when updating the status of requests to save time. Only Owners can use this feature.
- Navigate to profile > Manage Organization.
- Select Prepared Content.
- Click New Canned Message.
- Fill out the message fields.
- Title: Provide a title that allows the comment to be easily identified from the dropdown menu in your city’s dashboard.
- Message: Add the message that will be inserted in the Comment field when this canned response is used.
- Note: You can include spaces for more specific information pertaining to each individual request, such as the resolving department and the date of the resolution or expected date of resolution.
- Click Save.
- The canned message will appear in your dashboard when you click Change Status or Comment when acting on a Request.
