Why is my New ticket being created in Open status? Follow

    The problem is, now when a user replies, I cannot differentiate between the new Tickets and the replies I'm getting. 


    I prioritize the replies first then only handle the new tickets. Am I missing something here?

    Hi Tom!

    This is kind of tricky...the only thing that's springing to mind is using a Trigger to identify when the updater on the ticket is an end-user, and applying a tag to the ticket. Then you can create a View to separate out the user responses from the new tickets.

    Do you think that would work?

    Good morning Zendesk -

    We're running into a situation where the ticket is created as "New" - however if one of our customers replies back via their account portal before one of our agents replies, the ticket is being moved to "Open" status.


    This causes a pretty significant pain point for us because we can no longer differentiate a truly "New" ticket (by new, we mean one that has not been replied to by one of our agents).

    Hi Richard!

    Is this something that happens to you frequently?

    There isn't a way to move a ticket back to New status after it's been moved out of that status, so there isn't anything we'll be able to do for you there...that's intended behavior in the system.

    I think we might be able to sort this out by creating a custom View for your agents to work out of, but I'll need some information about your workflow first. Where do your agents find unassigned tickets that need to be worked?
