    Is this request just being ignored now?

    I'm getting complaints from my agents about this change, its not gone over well at all. We utilize the sort to locate a problem or its incidents using the sorting by subject. We review for duplicated tickets by sorting by requester, agents looks for specific groups tickets in the tier views. Were struggling to fit all of already existing views in to the limited list we have and now we will have to make more to accommodate this change.

    Meg Gunther - Are you referring to the removal of the ability to sort tickets by subject? That's only for the user profile page. Not ticket views. You'll still be able to sort ticket views by subject.

    Chris Fassano That is actually not true. You cannot sort Tickets by subject in either view.

    Shayan Moussawi - The article explicitly says otherwise. What am I missing?

    Can we get some support on this? I've already posted multiple times in the slack channel and contacted support. It’s already Aug 6, and we still don’ t have access to the changes in any of our d3v accounts. Aug 25 does not give us much time at all to migrate code base for all of our apps. Are these rollout dates still accurate?

    Hello everyone,

    We understand this is going to be a transition period and has been challenging to plan for this. We want to make this transition be as smooth as we can for you.

    We have decided to push this roll out back. We are working on delivering filtering capabilities this month and expect this to help be a workaround to cursor based pagination. look out for the new announcement of the capability coming soon. If you need any specific help with work arounds or getting something setup in your test account please reach out to your respective account representatives and I will get looped in through them.

    Salvador Vazquez Thank you for the update. Can you please clarify if this will impact the Views API? Specifically, will offset pagination be disabled for the /api/v2/views/{view_id}/tickets endpoint when your rollout has completed?

    Is there a timeframe on that? The options are still missing even after clearing the cache. Does this only apply the pagination issue, or the entire issue?

    Salvador Vazquez, since you push back the roll out date, can you kindly return back the sorting option please? 

    Also, one suggestion that if Zendesk will implement a change might as well not to remove yet any existing feature that is totally HELPFUL then leaving us hanging.

    I came across this post today and am extremely frustrated to discover this. Ever since we were switched to Zendesk from an on-premises database solution, the primary frustration (outside from the most bogus text editor I've ever encountered) is the lack of sort, filter, and pagination options. It's already extremely frustrating to not be able to sort contacts by any seemingly useful information, like just alphabetical order even. Removing this functionality from profile pages makes it not only more difficult to see what's going on for a customer, since sometimes new tickets won't show up at the top of a requester's profile, but also makes daily ticket management as an individual more difficult, as many use this page to check the tickets they have been tagged as a follower on, see tickets outside of the "active" view, and so on. I know that people in the comments have suggested using views, but we already use more views than are allowed to show in the menu at one time, so this is a vital page for us. My humble opinion is that if there's a column, you should be able to sort and filter by it.  I really hope they reverse this decision, removing functionality instead of removing it is super disappointing.

    I agree with everything you are saying, but unfortunately, Zendesk really doesn't care for their customers anymore.

    They have openly admitted that their Dev team are not skilled enough to continue to Dev for the simple filter features, so they've chosen their Dev to remove those features to meet the team's skills and capabilities over their customer's requirements/needs.

    I have been trying to arrange a meeting with our 'Account Exe' but so far resisting.

    Below is a direct reply from said 'Account Exe'

    "I understand you are wondering about the Subject Line Filter feature which was removed. Just to set expectations, I do not believe this will be coming back as it is not on the roadmap as far as I know. "

     
     
    I can also extract direct emails from ZD that contain the conversations of basically refusing to revert back the changes, regardless of many customers use this feature.
     
    I believe, like me, many others have already started looking elsewhere for a support portal.
     
    I am currently in the process of exporting the ZD data into a support portal.
     
    Considering how much we currently pay per agent, per month.. it'll be a big loss, especially if everyone else follows suite.

    You announced this changes then keep on moving the roll out date and at the same time you already removed a very functional and helpful feature. Not sure zendesk if we are really for the improvement and if we are taking the customer experience very seriously.

    We have pushed the rollout of this until after the holiday high season and will get the change in towards the end of Q1 2023 with more details to come as we solidify a date.

    @Salvador Vazquez 

     

    Are you joking? - not been able to filter by 'subject' since August.

    You've not rolled anything back because the features are not available to filter via 'subject'

    Can you confirm exactly what features you are rolling back??

     

     

    I've lost ALL confidence in Zendesk.

    Basically continuing to use it until we've got all our data imported into a new ticket system, one where they actually care for customers feedback and don't flat out lie.
