Skill level: Intermediate

- Zendesk Explore Professional or Enterprise
- Editor or Admin permissions (see Giving agents access to Explore)
- Ticket data in Zendesk Support
Creating the query
In this procedure, you'll create a standard calculated attribute that returns "Has this word" if the ticket subject line contains the search string "support". If the subject doesn't contain the string then "Does not have this word" is returned. You'll then use this attribute to create your report.
To create the query
- In Explore, click the query () icon.
- In the Queries library, click New query.
- On the Choose a dataset page, click Support > Tickets > Support: Tickets [default], then click New query.
- In the Calculations menu (), click Standard calculated attribute.
- On the Standard calculated attribute page, give your new metric a name like “Contains”.
- In the Formula field, enter or paste the following formula, replacing the word "support" with the word or phrase you want to search for (in lower case):
IF (CONTAINS(LOWERCASE([Ticket subject]),"support"))The formula is not case-sensitive. In the example above, “Support”, “SUPPORT”, and “sUpPoRt” would all be found.
THEN "Has this word"
ELSE "Does not have this word"

- In the Rows panel, click Add.
