I can't seem to find a place to log general ideas, so I'm logging it here and hopefully the right people will see it.
1) The "Case Status Update" emails that notify you when a new note has been added to your case are redundant, since you will also receive a "New Note" email with the actual contents of the note. I'd like to be able to unsubscribe from those emails and only receive case status updates related to new case creation, case closure warnings, and case closures.
2) The case name should always be included in the subject of the email and should be kept consistent throughout the entire conversation so I know exactly which case is being referenced without opening the email. Here's an example from a recent conversation. The case name is specific while the subject is a generic "Update." I often have multiple cases going with support at once and it can be difficult to keep track of the entire convo when I can't group emails by case. If the subject line of the email is kept consistent, I can sort by subject and have the entire chain grouped together.
3) It would be incredibly helpful if the entire conversation chain, including my responses to support, were included in every "New Note" email. That way, if I need to reference a previous email in the conversation, I don't have to go digging for it or login the case portal. I work with another vendor whose support emails are structured this way, so it's definitely possible to do.
4) When I respond to support via email, my responses should be recorded in the case portal as a note. It currently only includes my responses if I log them in the portal directly.
