    Hi Jessica,

    To look at group changes, you should use the group IDs instead of their names and then use [Update ID] instead of [Ticket ID]. The metric should look something like this:

    IF ([Changes - Field name] = "group_id" 
    AND [Changes - Previous value] = "insert group id of old group here"
    AND [Changes - New value] = "insert group id of new group here")
    THEN [Update ID]
    ENDIF

    Hi Marie-Cathrine,

    Since you were such a great help last time around, I was wondering if you also know how I can access changes in custom field options. More specifically, I want to track a change in a custom ticket field from it was 'xyz' to it is 'not xyz'. I have tried different ways so far but none of them work.

    Hi Jessica,

    Here is how I would do it:

    1. Paste the formula from above into where you create calculated metrics
    2. Access the ticket fields endpoint from the API: your-subdomain.zendesk.com/api/v2/ticket_fields.json
    3. Find the ticket field (you can search for the name of the field)
    4. Paste the value from the title property into the field name in the formula
    5. Paste the values of the value properties for the previous and new values into the formula

    I hope this helps :)

    Thank you so much! I had tried ID and name before, but not value. I am still quite new to zendesk, so I'm only starting to understand its quirks.

    Hi there,

     

    I was wondering if we are able to build a custom metric for when a checkbox goes from False to True - I've tried a bunch of different methods but it doesn't seem to want to work. I also checked our ticket_fields.json and there are no "Value" sections like above.

    IF ([Changes - Field name] = "Needs RS Assistance"
    AND [Changes - Previous value] = FALSE
    AND [Changes - New value] = TRUE )
    THEN [Update ID]
    ENDIF

    This seems to be returning a "Blank" instead of 0 currently.

    We also want to record the date of each switch.

    Nevermind! Just figured it out, unchecked value is 0, checked is 1!
