    Does an internal comment count as an Agent Reply here? We typically use a macro that adds a tag and internal comment to track when we solve with no response

    Hello Schuyler,

    Agent replies gives you the number of public replies added to a ticket by an agent. So internal notes aren't counted. For more info, see Metrics and attributes for Zendesk Support.

    Sometimes tickets don't need an answer so we just solve them. If a ticket is solved without public reply, will that count as a one-touch ticket or not? (in my view it should not)

    Hey Christophe,

    I confirmed with one of our Explore experts that this metric would include any ticket that has 0 agent responses as well. If you'd like to exclude these tickets, you can create a custom metric using the default metric as a model. You can then add an extra condition to exclude 0 agent replies.

    Hope this clears up any confusion!

    Based on what I'm reading here, one-touch tickets and one-reply tickets should have the same stats, is that correct? So if I check all one-touch tickets for last week, it should match the number of one-reply tickets for last week.

    Referring to Brett's response to Christophe regarding tickets that don't require an answer. To confirm - if it's closed off by an agent without a response, it's still included as a response in this metric. Is that correct?

    In an earlier response to the question "How are one-touch tickets calculated?", it was advised that if a customer re-opens the ticket with an additional question and the agent responds and solves the ticket again, it will no longer count as a one-touch resolution. However, if the customer reaches back saying 'thank you' for example, and the agent solves the ticket without making another reply, the ticket will still count as a one-touch resolution. Based on my first point, would it not register as a response, therefore not making it a one-touch resolution.

    Many thanks

    Hi Joshua,

    Based on the One-touch tickets formula below:

    IF (VALUE(Agent replies) <2 AND ([Ticket status - Unsorted] = "Solved" OR [Ticket status - Unsorted] ="Closed")) THEN [Ticket ID] ENDIF

    This will include tickets that have only one public response from an agent or no response at all.


    I’m not sure what you meant by one-reply tickets as upon checking, we currently do not have that listed in our default metrics. Can you please provide more information about the one-reply tickets that you’re referring to?

    Hi Imelda,

    If the agent just solves a ticket without a public response, then yes, the ticket is still included in this metric. The One-touch tickets formula looks for tickets that have <2 Agent replies. This means that tickets with one public reply or no public reply at all count as one-touch tickets.

    From the Metrics and attributes for Zendesk Support article,

    I hope this clarifies your inquiry. Cheers! :)

    If there is a lot of back and forth in the ticket via social media (ex. Facebook Messenger), is that considered as one-touch?

    Hi Jessica Manipon! If there are two or more Agent Replies (i.e. public comments left by an agent) on the ticket, it wouldn't be considered a one-touch ticket.
