    this trigger needs to be enabled/disabled manually per agent?

    Unfortunately yes, Tonmoy. I haven't been able to come up with an easier way of doing it.

    One, perhaps 'easier', way is to create view that will show all the open tickets for agents that are Out of Office. This way you don't have to have a trigger per agent. For our agents it just means monitoring this view.


    View name: "Absent agents - please check"

    Meet all of the following conditions:

    • Ticket: Status is less than solved

    • Ticket: Status is not pending

    Meet any of the following conditions:

    • Ticket: Assignee is [name of agent]

    • [add the above condition for each absent agent]


    Hope it helps :)
