    Can you add Feature Request or Enhancement to the ticket Type field? I'd rather not add a Custom field for this purpose.

    Hi Clay - 

    You would need to add a custom field for that. There is not a default field for feature requests or enhancements.

    Hi Nicole,

    I was hoping 'add a Custom Field' wasn't going to be the response.

    Feature Request seems like the kind of field that would be a shoo-in for a common solution.

    Is it possible that somewhere up the chain of command, someone might say, yeah, that's a good idea, we'll add it?

    Hi Clay - 

    I know it's not the response you were hoping for, but it is how the system currently works. I know it seems like a simple ask, but it's possible that changing those fields would have other implications, or that it hasn't been included to this point for a reason. 

    That being said, you're welcome to start a thread in the Product Feedback area of the Zendesk Community, where the Product Managers go to hear from our customers about their use-cases. You'll want to give them details such as what the impact to your business is and how it fits in your workflow. i.e. do you get 30 tickets a day or two per month with feedback? How would having this field change your workflow? What would having that field enable you to do? Why is the custom field a suboptimal option? 

    Product development decisions take into account the size and scope of the impact, number of customers this would impact, cost of development and implementation, and a number of other factors. I can't guarantee anything, but posting there is the best way to get your idea in front of the Product team.
