    @... Do you have an update on when this will be released? We are Zendesk Partners and are currently rolling out a large enterprise project here in APAC and this feature is a big show stopper as it causes a bad experience for anyone with a ticket inside the organization. 

    This org, needs tickets to be put on hold, whilst the works are carried out and they require the end-user to know the ticket is on-hold during this period of time.

    We are also facing this issue. 
    Would be very helpful if this feature will be available soon.

    @... @... - have you been able to find a solution for this?  We've implemented some custom JS code on our Help Centre to handle this use case, perhaps custom code would be an option for you as well?

    Hi Ron,

    I think every case would be unique, but in general you can leverage the Zendesk REST API Requests endpoint here.  You can GET all of the signed in user's tickets and statuses.  Then you can manipulate the UI via Javascript based on the status and your own use case.  Happy to discuss in further detail if you can share more specifics about your use case.

    Hi all

    I'm excited to tell you that we are now working on a feature that will let you show on hold statuses to your users in the customer portal.

    Expect more news latest in december.

    Have there been any updates to this? Clients can now select "Open" "Awaiting your reply" and "Solved" But I still don't see an option for "On-hold"?

    Any update on when this feature will be incorporated? The last note said we would have an update in December of last year.

    Hi, I completely agree with all the posts above. Like Jodie we have been using the Zendesk system for a couple of years now, and I had no idea our customers weren't seeing the same ticket status that we see for On Hold tickets.  Having them display as "Open" gives customers the impression that we are "sitting on our hands" on certain tickets. Please get this changed as soon as possible!

    Any updates on this? We really want our end users to see the same status as the agents. Not sure why anyone would have ever created the status' to be different, it doesn't make any sense. Lets fix this please.

    Agree with everyone above...please get this out there.  Is there an ETA yet?  Last word from Zendesk appears to be from February 2022.

    Hello everyone. The ability to show any status to your end users through the help center will be enabled through custom ticket statuses. If you would like to know more, we have a closed EAP on the way for this feature. I can enable it in a production or sandbox environment after you sign up through this sheet.  CTS Closed EAP Signup

    There are certain criteria for this EAP

    • Participants must be on the new Agent Workspace
    • Participants must know and accept that not all features will work with custom statuses during the EAP
    • Participants may be willing to provide feedback on their experience

    I was able to remedy this with custom JavaScript.  The requests API has the correct hold status, so I used a JSON call to grab that status and then used it to manipulate the requests page so that it displays correctly.  If anyone is interested, here's how I did it.  Back up your original code before making any changes.

    Add this the document_head.hbs file:  <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>

    See the attached screenshot for the requests_page.hbs changes.
