    Hi, When a ticket to the Pending/hold status, is the clock stop ticking for resolution time? thanks

    Hi Rebecca,
    In regards to your concern about the pausable time for tickets being put into pending status. Once you created an SLA target, there are certain ticket statuses that will apply. 
    A ticket's SLA target will be paused once a ticket is put into pending. A paused SLA target is one whose metric has not yet been completed, but we’ve temporarily paused the clock.
    You can check our articles below for more information about this:
    Viewing and understanding SLA targets
    Defining and using SLA policies
    Thank you and have a wonderful day ahead!

    When I put internal notes in a ticket and submit it as OPEN, because I plan to continue with more notes or a reply, my view stays on that ticket.  It does not disappear or take me to a new ticket.  None of my coworkers have this feature.  If they put in an internal note and submit at OPEN, it takes them back to their OPEN view and they have to go back and find that ticket they were just working on.  Where is this setting?

    Hey Karen.

    Just to the left of the submit button is a setting for 'close tab' or 'stay on ticket' . It defaults to close tab by default. Each agent can set this for themselves.

    I'm being asked to track the number of tickets being "Solved" that didn't actually get "resolved."  Meaning that it was an issue that we weren't able to actually fix for the user.  Is there an additional field I can add to my workflow so as to identify these tickets when I do my monthly reporting?

    Yes, you can add custom ticket fields (perhaps a checkbox field would be helpful here?): Adding custom fields to your tickets and support request form

    Is there a way to identify (ideally in a report) that shows me tickets that were solved but are now open. We have a number of tickets that get solved were customers reply "thank you" or similar which re-opens them.  I have no idea how many of these tickets we have in our queue but it would be good to identify any that have moved from Solved back to Open again.

    Hi Morris,
    You can use the default metrics Reopens or Reopened tickets under the Tickets dataset. Reopened tickets will show you which tickets have been previously solved and then eventually reopened; Reopens will return the actual count of instances where a ticket has been reopened. You can slice the query by the attribute Ticket ID if you need to check the tickets that have been reopened.

    Currently I'm having a problem with my zendesk and the problem is that whenever a end-user submitted a ticket, the ticket status will go straight into close automatically and I tried to change the tickets view but it does not work

    Hey Kluivette, 
    This can typically happen if you have a trigger set up that automatically sets your ticket status to closed. I would recommend checking there to see if that's the case. More on managing triggers here: Managing triggers
    You can also check the events of the ticket to see what is setting the status to closed: Viewing all events of a ticket


    I hope this helps!
