Handesk has been created by our need (At Revo Systems to have a powerful yet simple Ticketing system, we needed a system that allowed us to have multiple teams, with multiple users, easy and efficient reporting by all/team/user as well as lead management.

Landing page:

Check out the screenshots to see how nice it looks, and feel free to contribute by sending us PRs. We will keep adding features as we need them, but our basic workflow is totally covered :D


  • Email polling (new tickets and tickets updates)
  • Email attachments as ticket attachments (using laravel storage driver)
  • API for creating/updating/fetching tickets/leads so you can display them into your main app
  • Instant email/slack notifications when tickets are created/updated
  • Everything is unlimited
  • Lead management (With its API as well)
  • Auto lead subscription to mailChimp based on its tags
  • Tickets reporting
  • Tickets internal notes
  • Tickets can be escalated, so assistants can comment on them to help the teams
  • Can merge tickets
  • Mention agents with @name so they get notified
  • Lead tasks, that can have a due date, and sending daily tasks email
  • Create issues to your code repository directly from the ticket
  • Updating the ticket automatically when an issue is marked as resolved
  • UI multi language support (default en, alternative ca, de, fr, es)
  • Roadmap module, you can create ideas that come from your customers or your own, give them deadlines and integrate them with your repository manager, you can even create ideas from support tickets so you never lose track.
  • You can also create ideas by sending an email to you support accounts starting with Idea: it will create an idea instead of a ticket
  • Ticket rating, when a ticket is solved a rating email is sent to the customer (check config/handesk.php to disable it)

Its very simple, you just need to follow the standard Laravel installation

git clone
cd handesk
composer install
# Setup your .env file to match your desired database
php artisan key:generate

# Purge the cache before running migrations
php artisan config:cache
php artisan config:clear

# Run migrations and seed
php artisan migrate --seed
php artisan storage:link #if you use the local driver

Alternatively, you can use the following docker setup

The default admin user is [email protected] / admin If you want email pulling, you need to enable the imap extension on php (note that on mac the php-cli runs very slow, you need to update your /etc/hosts file
