Tracking the original agent

    Josh Padnick What plan are you on and how many agents? I'm also curious to know what group and/or role settings you have setup for Tier 1 and Tier 2 etc? Do they have the ability to create their own macros and views? 

    You could definitely achieve this through a macro with a tag, the tag would work like your custom ticket field. I would suggest you have a standard escalation macro and then another macro for each agent to tag with a unique identifier. 

    However, if you are in a medium sided organisation with 10+ agents in each tier this could become a nightmare to maintain and I'd probably recommend against it. 

    Edit: If you used a dropdown of the agents names that would possibly work for your macro (original thought process), again it's going to require maintaining. 

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your input! We're on Zendesk Suite Professional, at least for now. And tags and a custom dropdown field were exactly what I was thinking is a possibility, though just as you said, if the number of agents becomes high, that gets pretty clunky and hard to maintain.

    That may be our best bet, but curious if there's a more scalable option here?

    Josh Padnick just looking at the screenshots on this market place application, it seems to log the agents, status and time spent - https://www.zendesk.com/marketplace/apps/support/35111/time-tracking/

    I'm not 100% sure on the functionality as I am yet to test but might be what your looking for?

    Thanks, Jarrad.

    Thanks, Jarrad! We had a single field to propagate from org to ticket with only 6 possible values, so I wound up just defining 6 separate triggers.
