Multiple brands ticket numbering
Right now, we have one brand in our Zendesk instance - A. The ticket numbering is fairly normal, e.g. #76867, #76868, #76869, etc.
We are about to set up a new additional brand - B, and we will be migrating tickets from a different ticketing system.
I carried out a demo migration of roughly 20 tickets and I noticed that the ticket numbering continues for those migrated tickets - #76870, #76871, etc.
A new feature, that would be useful, would be to make it possible to somehow distinguish those migrated tickets for the new brand and also newly created tickets for the new brand by adding some kind of prefix/suffix to the ticket number.
E.g. brand A would have regular numbering, and brand be would have the prefix B- so the ticket id would look like #B76870, #B76871.
Thanks for taking the time to share this feedback, Mirek.
How often does this come up for you? Do you find that you need to migrate tickets with much frequency? How significant is the business impact?

I think that the migration is just an example of one use case, but this Feature Request is more related to setting up multiple brands and distinguishing between them, which I think can happen more often than the actual ticket migration.
As a user who has multiple brands, I would appreciate having an option to clearly distinguish between ticket IDs related to each brand.
We have a customer who would like to do the same thing - combine tickets from two different brands onto a third ZD instance, so would be interested to know if/when this could be a possibility
We have just implemented our system and our business partners are getting our ticket numbers confused with their own ticket numbering system. It would be great to have the ability to add a prefix to the ticket number so our tickets can be easily identified (as you can in NetSuite & Microsoft Dynamics). This is causing quite big issues and mistakes for us and generating rework.
I would also like a solution for this.
Multiple brands with the option to choose prefixes for tickets.
Bump! Would love prefixes or some way to separate Ticket #s per brand.
