    I created a custom Ticket Field named "Ticket Status".  In this field, I have drop-down options (e.g.- Received, In Development, In Production, Live, Closed, etc.).  I am having trouble getting that to show up on a column.  Any help would be immensely appreciated. 

  • Laura Hippert

    Hi Miguel,

    Currently there is no way to include custom fields in your table using our helpers.

  • Miguel

    Oh no, that is a huge huge huge huge issue for us.

  • Vladan Jovic

    Hey Miguel, that seems doable via ZD API call. 



  • Justin

    I see that it's not possible to add a custom field property as a column, but can we use a custom field as a sort-by filter?

  • Mirjam Happel


    I'm actually looking to remove information from the requests page. We are disabling email ticket creation and I am using the workaround where tickets are still created, but they are auto-closed and people get a message from Zendesk. This however still does make these tickets visible on the My Activities page.

    I would like to remove these tickets that are created wrongfully by email from the My Activities page.

    Please advice!

    Hello Laura or Whoever is monitoring this thread,

    Inability to add a custom field as a column to the ticket grid under My activities/Org Requests may actually become a show stopper for us.  Some of our bigger customers need to be able to filter the list of tickets by specific ticket attributes.  We are in the process of merging with a bigger company and have an opportunity to expand ZD footprint, but this may stop us from being able to do so.  We are competing with SalesForce, which is able to display various case filters to end-users.  I definitely feel strongly about ZD being the right solution for us, but it's hard for me to prove this point internally if we are not able to display some custom ticket attributes in the ticket grid to our biggest customers.

    Could you help me win this battle please?  Is it ABSOLUTELY impossible to add a custom ticket field to the ticket grid under Org Requests?  I think it would make most sense to allow us to create a Ticket View that would be used by Guide to display ticket grids.  I realize it may be easier said than done, so I am open to any other suggestion you may have.  Please Help!

    How is adding custom ticket fields in the activity table STILL not resolved.   The first comment in this article asks for it 3 years ago and it is the same thing everyone posts all the time.  Do your product managers even review what customers are asking for?

  • Stuart Buddrige

    +1 Mark - I can't see what the Product Managers are working on as a lot of basic functionality seems to be missing from Zendesk...

  • Nicole - Community Manager

    Mark -

    Our product managers review requests in our product feedback forums that receive a high number of votes and comments. They can't always respond, and can't always build everything that everyone asks for, but they do take the feedback that gets shared in those topics into account when working on solutions.

  • Julien Van de Casteele

    Has this been posted in the Products Feedback Forum??


    let's all vote on it please ;-) 


    We need to display custom fields here too!

  • Julien Van de Casteele

    Hey @Joey Angeja does your code for displaying the assignee still work for you?

    I tried implementing it on our end but it doesn't seem to be working...

  • Bill Nemec

    <td> directive no longer in the form, tried the following and the header appears but no Priority, please help.

    <th>{{t 'priority'}}</th>

    <span class="meta-data">#{{priority}}</span>

    Thank you,

    Bill, Lumeta FireMon

    Hello Bill,

    I'm not sure if I get your question, but I tried the instructions in the article and it worked for me.

    When editing (an unmodified) 'requests_page.hbs' I've added on line 76 (right after the closing 'th' of the status header):

    {{t 'priority'}}

    Then on line 117 (right after the closing 'td' of the status colum) I've added:


    That did the trick for me!

  • bhamilton

    While we find "My Requests" and "CC'd" useful, what I'd like to create is an additional option for "Tickets I'm Assigned To". I this possible to build out? We're planning on the help centre being useful for both end-users and agents.

    Please help!

  • Nicole - Community Manager

    Hi bhamilton - 

    If you have development resources, it may be possible, however, it's not a setting that is native to the platform. You could pose this question in the Guide Themes Customization topic in the community to see if any of the users or moderators there could help you out with the custom code required.

    Hi Folks,

    Has anybody tried adding the ticket assignee to the Requests page ? Assignee doesn't appear in the request object.


    Lohith S

  • Brett - Community Manager

    Hi Lohith,

    I was able to check internally and it doesn't look like the ticket assignee object is available on the request_list template.

    If this is something you're interested in then I would recommend creating a post in our Guide Product Feedback forum to help provide visibility to our Product Managers as well as other users in need of a similar functionality.
