Actions Description
Set subject You can use this action to replace the ticket's current subject.
Status

The ticket status can be set to the following:

Open indicates that the ticket has been assigned to an agent.

Pending indicates that the requester has been asked for information and the ticket is therefore is on hold until that information has been received.

On-hold means that the support request is awaiting a resolution from a third party, someone who is not a member of your support staff and does not have an agent account. This status is optional and must be added (see Adding the On-hold ticket status to Zendesk Support in the Administrator Guide).

Solved indicates that the customer's issue has been resolved. Tickets remain solved until they are closed.
Form Your ticket forms are available as actions. Select a specific form.

See Creating ticket forms to support multiple request types.

Priority The priority can be set to Low, Normal, High or Urgent.
Type

The type can be set to the following:

Question

Incident indicates that there is more than one occurrence of the same problem. When this occurs, one ticket is set to Problem and the other tickets that are reporting the same problem are set to Incident and linked to the problem ticket.

Problem is a support issue that needs to be resolved.

Task is used by the Support agents to track various tasks.

Note: It's currently not possible to link incident tickets to problem tickets or set task due dates using the task action in macros.
Group

You can set groups to any of the following:

(—) is used to unassign a group (if one has already been assigned)

(current user’s groups) is the group to which the agent who is updating the ticket belongs. If the user belongs to multiple groups, the macro makes a series of checks to determine which group should be used. Group priority is determined as follows:

  • The group currently assigned to the ticket, if the agent is in that group.
  • The agent's default group, if one is available.
  • The first group the agent belongs to, if no default group is set.
Group name is the actual name of the group that is assigned to the ticket.
Assignee

You can set assignee to any of the following:

(—) is used to set assignee to no one (unassigned)

(current user) is the last person to have updated the ticket, which is not necessarily the same person who is assigned to the ticket. The current user (whoever updated the ticket last) changes whenever the ticket is updated.

Assignee name is the actual name of the person assigned to the ticket.
Satisfaction Offered to requester.
