    Hi Stephen,
    Thank you for reaching out to us. If you recover a ticket from suspended queue, the system will recognize that the email is safe and will increase its score not to be suspended in the future.

    Our agents have noticed that recently the option to mass delete suspended tickets has been greyed out in the view. They were able to delete up to about 2 weeks ago, and now can't.

    I have an admin licence and have the ability to mass delete but the agents do not.

    Please can you advise if there has been a recent change to affect this, there is nothing above that indicates an agent can't mass delete. Thanks

    Hi Jen,

    There's no way to configure Allowlist by subject line, but there is an app that has a similar sort of ability to let you query the suspended queue for specific tickets meeting certain conditions and then have certain actions taken on those tickets, kind of like with business rules.

    You may check out the app Shredder here:

    Essentially you can say any suspended ticket created with x, y , z text in the subject line then it will recover automatically.

    Disclaimer: The app is developed by third-party app developers, for further questions about using the app you may reach out to Sparkly directly.

    Hello @...,

    We would need to take this into a ticket so we can take a closer look at your account to see what is going on.

    I will respond to you shortly in a ticket.

    Due to my delayed response, I want to know if you are still experiencing the issue. If you do, please contact us through Messaging and we'll gladly look into it.

    If you deleted a suspended ticket, can you still recover it? or maybe a history of deleted suspended tickets?

    Is there a way to whitelist keywords in Suspended tickets? We are listed on a medical website as a provider for a particular service and when a patient fills out the questionnaire it automatically comes to our info@ email that routes to Zendesk. The email address is that of the patient but the subject line is always the same.

    Vince Pineda,

    Deleted suspended tickets cannot be recovered.

    I can't see the suspended tickets in my views. According to my boss I have the same rights as my colleague who can see it. Do i need to add the suspended tickets to my views? if so, how can i do this?

    Is there any sort of identifier on tickets that have been recovered? It would be very helpful to be able to report on the volume of recovered tickets from the suspended queue. Thanks.

    Hi Melissa,
    When recovering a deleted ticket no tag will be added as an identifier. You have an option to report on the number of deleted tickets that were recovered using the Ticket updates dataset. 
    Trust this helps.
  • Stephen Austin

    If I recover a ticket will that email address be recognised as safe and will prevent it from being suspended in future? Or will I have to manually add each address to the safe list?
