    this may seem like a silly question but I am so frustrated with this subject issue in the views, I want to poke my eyes out.  I've created the trigger but I don't see where in the view I can add it??  On a side note, I love Zendesk but this is something that should be fixed.  How can the subject not be including in views but the description is??  Makes no sense.

    Hi Krista!

    Have you gone in and created/edited the View where you want these tickets to appear? Once you've gone in an added the tag to the View conditions you'll be all set.

    I'm right in the same place with this - I don't know how this isn't a filter option..

    I believe it would be beneficial for Zendesk to develop native conditions for filtering views based on subject field data.
     
    While I realise a trigger to set tags is a workaround - it is one that requires an agent to have permissions to create them - something that, rightly, may not be a good idea. Triggers - as seem to touch every ticket at different stages in different ways - is probably an 'expensive operation' processing wise and having many agents creating many triggers to filter personal views seems impracticable.

    If Subject or raw-subject are special or indexed fields that may make implementing this tough... perhaps duplicating that field (how about searchable-subject?) is a way to achieve subject filtering!

    Hey Jason -

    We have a conversation about this happening in the Support Product Feedback topic in the community. I encourage you to up-vote it and add a comment to this thread if you like:

    Views should include the condition "subject"

    Is there any way to tag a ticket based on the contents?

    Use case: we have people who reply to one of our texts or emails with just a "Thank you." I would like to create a trigger to identify tickets where the entire comment text is "Thank you" or "Thanks" so that I can auto-close them.

    The problem I'm having is that the options allow me to tag a ticket if the comments has "at least one of the following words" or "contains the following string." But that's going to also include tickets where someone has a legitimate need and then adds "Thank you" to the end. I'd like to have a filter that says the comments contains "only the following string".

    Hi Sy -

    While there are ways to tag tickets based on the comment content as you described, you have correctly identified the limitation that there is not a "contains only" or "contains exactly" type of criteria.

    I have just upvoted on the Support Product Feedback. I hope this will get more traction as that request is already more than 6 years old but I've always felt limited in creating views when Subject isn't an option.

    I need to provide a report to upper management for every ticket submitted since making the move to Zendesk with a specific word in the subject line. It's crazy that there's no option to create a View for Ticket: Subject contains....

    Could you perhaps modify the Description to include Subject?

    Is there any update on this topic? Creating views will be a lot easier if there is an option to filter out messages using the subject of the email or messages.

    Hey Angelito,

    It doesn't look like this functionality is currently on the roadmap. I'll be sure to mark this as product feedback so our Product Managers are aware of this need.

    Cheers!
