How can I create a view or report on the age of a ticket? Follow

    I want to have a backlog report that shows the number of tickets that are older than 72 hours.
    In the views the age in hours is easily visible but how can I do this in a report? The metric presented above (Ticket Age) only gives me the age of the oldest ticket, and only in days where I want it in hours.

    Thanks for any suggestion!

    Hi Jessie, did you get any update on Melanie's question? I would like to make a report on Open tickets that are older than 7 days.

    Hi Han!

    I floated this by our Community Moderators to see if anyone was available to answer but it looks like no one was able to pick it up. I'll bump it and see if anyone's around. :)

    Hi Melanie and Han, 

    I think I have a solution for each of you.  The trick will be to add Ticket Id into your How condition.  This forces the Ticket Age metric to split on a per ticket basis. 

    Try building a report using the following in insights:


    Ticket Age (days) [AVG]


    Ticket id 


    Choose Numeric Range Filter
    Attribute = Ticket id
    Metric = Ticket Age (days) [AVG] is greater than or equal to the number of days you want to filter down to. 

    Status is New, Open, Pending, On Hold, etc (adjust as necessary).
