TeamSupport users spend the majority of their time inside of the Ticket Detail Window. There are many options on this screen for customization as are described below. When you open a ticket, it will open in a new tab along the top of the TeamSupport window. This allows user to multi-task by going back and forth between tickets, and even Customers, Contacts, and Products.
Below are definitions for the various options you have from the Ticket Detail page:
- + Public Action / + Private Action: Allows you to add a new action to the ticket.
- + Watercooler Post: Allows you to add a Water Cooler post that will be auto associated to this ticket.
- Take Ownership: Selecting this button will assign the currently selected ticket to the user. For example, a ticket may be assigned to the Customer Service Group but NOT assigned to a specific individual. The Take Ownership button is a quick way for users to add any ticket to their list and begin working on it.
- Request Update: Any user can use the Request Update feature which will send the ticket owner an email informing them that the requesting user would like an update to a ticket. This feature is especially nice for managers that notice a ticket has been open and untouched for an unusual amount of time.
- Merge: This button will give you options for merging two tickets together.
- Refresh: Click this button to refresh the Ticket view
- Read/Unread: Toggle this option. This will affect the Read/Unread flag on the Ticket Grids.
- Subscribe/Unsubscribe: Subscriptions are a very powerful feature of TeamSupport. Rather than parties of interest having to run down information about a ticket or a customer, users can simply “subscribe” to tickets/customers and will be notified via email when new Actions occur.
- Enqueue/Dequeue: Add/Remove the ticket to your Queue
- Flag/Unflag: Flags or Unflags a ticket in any ticket grid view which you can then sort to easily find tickets you have flagged for follow up. Flagged tickets also appear under the “Flagged” tab on your ticket grid.
- Ticket Number: This is the automatic number which is given to each ticket.
The following can be found under the “More” menu:
- History: This option will display every action taken on a given ticket. You are given the date and time stamp, who performed the action, and what action took place.
- Print: Formats the view so the ticket may be printed through your browser.
- Email Ticket: Allows you to email the ticket to anyone you need to. Please note however, only Actions marked as Visible will be in the email. This email can be customized using the Ticket Email email template.
- URL: Will display the URL of the ticket so that you can share it with another co-worker. This cannot be used to send to a customer or any other non-TeamSupport user. This is an internal function only.
- Filter: These toggle buttons will allow you to filter the action results for this ticket between Public comments, Private comments, and Water Cooler posts. If you toggle off one of these buttons, the results will not display in the results list.
- Clone: This option makes branching out from a ticket easy by copying all settings from one ticket into a second ticket. Also, if you generate similar tickets repeatedly, you may create template tickets and generate a copy whenever needed. You will be able to confirm the clone before the ticket is made. The next available ticket number will be used, and the ticket name will be the original ticket name plus (Clone) appended. All other settings will be copied to the new ticket.
- Delete: Deletes the selected ticket. Only Administrators can perform this action.
- Ticket Name: Lists the current ticket name. If the ticket was from created email, this is the subject of the email. This field can be edited by clicking on the field and then clicking Save.
The Action Windows provide important information for the actions which have been added to the ticket. Actions are added inline where the newest action is listed at the top by default.
- Timeline: The date of the action will be displayed in a blue box to help acclimate the user to the timeline of the actions.
- Actor: Lists who actually created the action.
- Action Type: This is a customized list to indicate the type of action. The first action in a ticket is always labeled as “Description”.
