Get the Most Out of JSM Customer Notification Logs: Tips and Best Practices

JSM Customer Notification

Imagine this: assuming a customer submits a critical service request in Jira Service Management (JSM), but days go by and they hear nothing. Frustration mounts, and eventually, they reach out again, only to discover the issue has already been resolved. What went wrong? The culprit could be a failed customer notification.

JSM has a great notification system, keeping customers informed about their requests. But what happens when those emails don't reach their inbox? This is where a powerful, yet often overlooked feature comes in: Customer Notification Logs.

Why Customer Notifications Matter

Effective communication is the cornerstone of great customer service. JSM's automated notifications keep customers in the loop about their requests, fostering trust and reducing the burden on your support team. These notifications typically cover:

  • Request updates: Customers receive emails whenever their request status changes (e.g., assigned to an agent, awaiting customer response, resolved).

  • Customer invitations: New project members are notified when granted access to a service project.

When these notifications reach a customer's inbox, everything runs smoothly. However, technical glitches or incorrect email addresses can lead to failed deliveries. Here's where JSM Notification Logs come to the rescue.

Unveiling the Power of Notification Logs

JSM Notification Logs provide a centralised view of all failed customer notifications. Accessible only to project administrators, these logs offer a wealth of information, including:

  • Date and Time: Pinpoint the exact moment a notification failed to deliver.

  • Recipient: Identify the customer whose email bounced or encountered an error.

  • Details: Gain valuable insights into the cause of the failure. This could be an invalid email address, a full mailbox, or even server-side issues.

Benefits of Utilising Notification Logs

By leveraging JSM Notification Logs, you can unlock a range of benefits:

  • Improved Customer Experience: Identify and address failed notifications promptly, ensuring customers receive the updates they deserve. This translates to a more positive customer experience and reduces the likelihood of frustrated follow-up requests.

  • Enhanced Visibility: Gain a clear picture of your notification system's overall health. Track trends in failed deliveries and identify potential bottlenecks.

  • Proactive Problem-Solving: Equipped with failure details, you can take targeted action. This might involve correcting typos in customer email addresses, working with your IT team to resolve server issues, or even adjusting notification settings for specific scenarios.

  • Increased Agent Efficiency: By preventing communication gaps, you streamline your workflow. Agents spend less time fielding unnecessary inquiries and can focus on resolving issues efficiently.

Taking Action with Notification Logs

Now that you understand the power of Notification Logs, here's how to put them into action:

  • Regular Monitoring: Make checking Notification Logs a routine part of your JSM administration tasks. Aim for daily or weekly reviews to stay on top of potential issues.

  • Prioritise Critical Notifications: Pay close attention to failed notifications for high-priority requests. Address these promptly to minimise customer frustration and expedite issue resolution.

  • Analyse Trends: Look for patterns in failed deliveries. If a specific email domain consistently bounces, investigate potential issues with that provider.

  • Take Corrective Actions: Based on the details provided, take appropriate steps. This might involve:

  • Updating customer email addresses in JSM.

  • Collaborating with your IT team to resolve server-related issues.

  • Adjusting notification settings for specific scenarios (e.g., sending SMS alerts for critical updates if email delivery is unreliable).
