    Hi Zendesk,


    Is there an update on this?  We specialize on - on demand services where it's the minutes that count and not the hours.  How can we have an automation that can check for minutes as a condition?

    Maybe there is a beta or a work around?

    Hi Oscar, 

    This article is current and up-to-date. We are not currently planning to change the increments for automations.

    Got it.  Thanks for the update.

    would be great to use minutes likes for SLA.

    Is there a place to vote for this feature to be prioritized in your backlog ?

    Hi Zendesk Team,

    I would agree in wanting to add this as a feature request. We track our SLA's initially in minutes so it would be incredibly helpful to be able to automate using those time increments. 

    Is there a specific location to add this request?

    Hi - I am currently building an application to handle this sort of functionality. Please email me at if you would be interested in piloting the app!

    Hi all, we've build an app that solves this use-case. It's called Timers and is available on the Zendesk marketplace. It lets you define down-to-the-minute actions on tickets :-)

    Now that many of us are using WhatsApp integration, it is the perfect time for Zendesk to review this issue.
    This channel requires this feature in minutes.
