If you have added social messaging channels to Support, there are no built-in reports to analyze these tickets, however the tickets from each social messaging channel are tagged to identify which channel they come from.
You can use this tag information in Support views, triggers, and automations. Additionally, you can use the tag information in your Explore custom reports.
In this article, you'll learn how to create a Support view that shows tickets from any social messaging channel and an Explore report that shows social messaging tickets from all channels.
This article contains the following topics:
Understanding social messaging ticket tags
The following tags are added when a ticket is created from a social messaging channel:
- line_support: Include tickets generated by LINE Messenger.
- whatsapp_support: Include tickets generated by WhatsApp.
- wechat_support: Include tickets generated by WeChat.
- messenger_support: Include tickets generated by Facebook Messenger.
- twitter_support: Includes tickets generated by Twitter mentions and direct messages.

of the Ticket tags property page:

each channel and the number and percentage of each ticket associated with a
social messaging channel.
