Tip: How to set a reminder on a ticket


  • Ludmila Buza


    The solution found by us is an automation with condition: Hours until due Date (calendar is) 4.

    If you look in the Events of a ticket, you will see that the date has a time too. Ours is 10UTC (and local is 12PM). I want the reminders at 8AM, hence the 4 hours before.

    (first automation was 8 hour since, because I thought the day started at 12AM midnight and needed the +8 hours)

    Tested and working.

    I wish I read the more recent comment on this thread first before I read https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/231659207?page=1#comment_4404674864282.

    But yes you have to make sure to use a tag that matches both the condition and action as shown in the screenshot above. I'm glad did not have to add the custom field as that sounds like a nightmare and in my case could impact both customers and my agents.

    How exactly do I blank out the date of the custom ticket field once the reminder date is reached if we can not add an action on the automation to "set to a specific date" to a blank field? So many people have said they get an error, but not seeing a solution.
