Zoho Desk Time Tracking and the Salary Privacy Issue

Zoho Desk Time Tracking and the Salary Privacy Issue

Hello colleagues,

Just wondering if anyone did hit the same wall?

In the Desk, when the agent-specific hourly rates are enabled (Zoho Desk → Setup → Time Tracking → Billing Preferences), these Time Entries are being displayed in the Ticket History tab.  With the cost!

As a result, any Agent who has an access to the particular ticket, sees the fellow agent's time entries and their cost. It is very inconvenient, as there is no way (as far as I know it) to hide the time entry cost from the Ticket History log for all the agents who has an access to the ticket. 

Zoho Desk -> Setup -> Permissions -> Profiles, and yes, there are options to limit access to the Time Entries. But this is not going to help. Hiding the Time Entry module is not the case because agents should be able to tap the Timer and record their time entry. But even if we hide the Time Entry tab at all, it won't affect the Ticket History log, which readily displays the time entries (and the cost!) of the fellow agents. A dead end. 

Is there a way to resolve it somehow, or maybe that can be included into Zoho Desk Roadmap? 

Thank you!

    • WhatsApp Pauses Client Onboarding

      It has been 4 months since the beta of WhatApp Integration, powered by Twilio, has been released—whereupon we had received a plethora of requests. We were able to onboard a few of them in batches, while other customers are on the queue. At this stage, we have received a notice from Twilio stating that the requested applications are placed on hold, since Whatsapp has paused all the ISV, SI, and ISV/SI customer onboarding process globally.  Here’s what this hold means for you: Existing Customers using

    • Layouts just got a whole lot more customizable!

      Dear Customers, Layouts help you organize your fields in each module. They help you quickly get to the information you care about the most. Until now, you could modify layouts and create custom fields only at the organization level. Today, we've made layouts more customizable. Each department can now have its own layout.
