    Hi Nicole S.

    Following your last answer, can you provide us with more visibility about the updated expected on linked tickets from Zendesk team please?

    Side question: I can see Linkets app is currenty listed on the Zendesk marketplace. Does it mean that update has been made on it and issues related in previous comments have been fixed?

    Thank you for your answer.

    Hey Lengow,

    We don't have any additional information to share regarding updates to the linked tickets functionality at this time so I do apologize for that!

    As for your other question, the Linkets app isn't an official Zendesk app so if you have any questions you'll want to reach out to the developer directly. You can find their contact information on the Linkets app page. Unfortunately I can't speak to what has been updated with the integration but the developer should be able to answer your questions :)

    Cheers!

    Hi there,

     

    I don't suppose that this app carries over any of the linked ticket updates back to the linked ticket? For example, if I link 2 tickets together, I would want the communication on the "child" ticket to be populated back to the "parent' ticket.

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ricardo,

    Thanks for the in-depth explanation about the Linked Tickets app.

    I have installed this following the instructions however when the app appears in-ticket on the app side panel, even after adding the Linked Data ticket field to the one and only Ticket form wI am using, I'm still getting the 'This ticket form is missing the linked data field. Missing field: 'Linked Data' (360020019919):



    Do you have any idea what the issue could be? I look forward to your reply - thank you in advance :)

    is there still noting that lets us link multiple tickets to one parent? we need to be able to link known problems reported by multiple people to one larger ticket and push updates from the parent without everyone being cc'd in a single ticket causing confusion when someone replies.

    Hi Jed! As per the article, the updates will not update on the linked tickets back to the parent ticket. You can use the workflow with Problem Tickets and Incidents tied to those, as noted here: https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203691086-Working-with-problem-and-incident-tickets.

    The Problem Ticket in this situation would be the Parent ticket, and the incidents would be the Child tickets.

    This is how Zendesk updates customers when we have service incidents, and it is an amazing method for linking tickets in an extremely productive manner.

    Thanks Tod another question,

    We noticed that when we create a linked ticket and select the requester's name that the Child / Linked ticket is showing the requester VIA the person who created the ticket. See SS's 1 and 2.

     

    That "via" is confusing the trigger as the requester is not getting the updates on the ticket, unless I add them to the CC field in the child ticket.

    Is this a bug or do I have my triggers set wrong

     

    Thanks

    Hi Jed!

    I can confirm that this behaviour is expected. When you create a ticket via the app, the child ticket shows by which person the ticket was created. Therefore, you will see the reference "via" on the ticket interface. However, this fact does not mean that the requester will not receive your email. In fact, when you create a ticket, you select who should be the requester and this person will receive your updates through triggers.

    Please note, however, that this is going to be a proactive ticket. For this reason, you need to ensure that you have a trigger that sends a proactive message to customers when you create tickets yourself. Please see the configuration of our default trigger for reference in our Help Centre article here: Notify requester of new proactive ticket.

    Let us know if you have further questions!

    Hi Grzegorz,

     

    Thank you, I have that setup but if I am reading the Help Center article correctly, this will only email notification of a created ticket to the requester, not any subsequent updates on the proactive ticket. That's the issue that we're running into, Notifying requesters of updates on proactive tickets. 

     

    Thanks.

    Hey Jed!

    Any comments that you add to tickets are sent through triggers. There's an action on the trigger that generates an email notification to the end-user. This trigger will only fire if the conditions specified for this trigger are fulfilled on the ticket. That being said, the app will only create a new child ticket from the existing parent ticket, but any comment will be sent via triggers.

    If no email messages are sent, I would suggest as a first step to check in the ticket events if the trigger that normally sends emails to the end-users has been activated. If this trigger has not fired, you'll need to check the setup of this trigger with your admins. Most likely, there is a condition that was not met in this particular ticket, which is why the email was not sent. You'll need to check what condition was not fulfilled and adjust the trigger accordingly.

    Natively, there is the standard Zendesk trigger that sends updates about any new comment to the end-user that you can also take a look at: Notify requester and CCs of comment update.

    I hope I could point you in the right direction, but let us know if you still need help!
