Jitbit Helpdesk with Office 365

Jitbit Helpdesk is a help desk software that allows you to manage your customers' requests. It supports all major cloud services, including Office 365, Google G Suite, and Active Directory. We'll go over how to use Jitbit with Office 365, set up SAML single sign-on for your users, and connect your mailboxes in this article.

What can you do with the Office 365 integration

The Jitbit Helpdesk system can process incoming emails from Office 365 servers and create tickets from them. If a customer needs assistance and does not have time to call or visit in person, they can send an email directly from their inbox rather than going through the trouble of navigating through other systems.

The connection between Jitbit Helpdesk and Office 365 is made using modern authentication protocols such as SAML 2, Graph API and OAuth, allowing your customers' accounts in both systems to remain synchronized; this means that any updates made in one system are automatically updated on the other. In addition to staying connected at all times, support agents will benefit from having access to all account information stored within support tickets.

Converting emails from an Office 365 mailbox into Jitbit support tickets

The incoming mail connector can be used for a variety of purposes, such as creating tickets from emails in Office 365 and adding comments to existing tickets.

  • To convert emails into tickets, follow these steps:
  • Navigate to the Administration tab and select Email.
  • Click on the "Edit incoming mailboxes" button
  • Choose Office 365 as the server type and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Click "Test" to ensure that the mailbox is properly connected.

All emails from that mailbox will now be automatically imported into Jitbit.
