- Copy the formulas below and paste each into the metric editor. Add a title for each metric like Tickets created by agents and Tickets created by end-users. The completed metrics will look like the screenshots below. Ensure you click Save each time you create a metric.
IF (([Changes - Field name]="status" AND [Changes - Previous value]=NULL)
AND ([Updater role] = "Admin" OR [Updater role] = "Agent"))
THEN [Update ID] ENDIF
IF (([Changes - Field name]="status" AND [Changes - Previous value]=NULL) AND
([Updater role] = "End-user")) THEN [Update ID] ENDIF
