Notification when a light agent replies on a closed ticket
Today we are facing some issue with our Light Agents replies (internal staff).
They raise a ticket to our Customer Support, we take action then close the ticket.
If they reply to the ticket, as a Light Agent can't update ticket status, it does not trigger any ticket change so we don't know they have replied.
Is there any way a Light Agent reply on a closed ticket could trigger the ticket to be switch to Open (or New follow up if ticket is solved for > 3 days).
Hi Delphine Pougnard, you can manage it whit a macro that write a predefined internal comment and a trigger that evaluate this comment to change the ticket status
Thanks Ricardo for your comment.
Could you show how you would manage this ?
I can't picture how this would work.
Any trigger that checks for a word in the ticket will do. Your agent can then add that word as a ticket comment so the trigger will perform the action you choose. Something like:
Good morning Diogo,
Still confused with this sorry, how can I predict which word to set in the trigger ?
Also I would not want any ticket to be reopened, only those from light agents where a note has been added after ticket was closed or solved.
Does that make sense ?
Hi Delphine Pougnard, just to be clear, do you mean "closed" as in Closed status, or Solved (i.e. still editable and can be reopened)? I'm assuming both scenarios.
1. Solved tickets and reopens
Regarding Solved tickets that do not reopen when Light Agents reply (i.e. add an internal note), can you please try the following trigger?
- Ticket is updated
- Current user is agent
- Comment is Private
- Assignee is not (current user)
- Status is Solved
- Status Not changed from Solved
- Status: Open
Alternatively, if you have few Light Agents, you can instead add multiple "Current user is [name]" conditions under ANY conditions.
2. Follow-ups to Closed tickets
For Light Agent replies that create a follow-up ticket (after replying to a Closed ticket), you can try user tags.
- Add the same tag to all your users who are Light Agents. For example, role_lightagent
- This tag will be added to all tickets created by them, including follow-up tickets (i.e. when they reply to a ticket that was Closed)
- In this scenario, it shouldn't be necessary to create a trigger, as the status a new follow-up ticket will be New/Open (please do correct me if I'm wrong)
Please let us know if this makes sense!
Crystal clear. I have created the trigger and I will see how it goes.
"Alternatively, if you have few Light Agents, you can instead add multiple "Current user is [name]" conditions under ANY conditions." This seems incorrect. Light agents do not populate in the "Current user is" conditions dropdown
