In Fluent Support, you can easily Filter, Sort, and Search through your tickets, which makes it easier for you to find any tickets, and arrange the tickets in any order that is convenient for you.
- From the dashboard, if you navigate to the Tickets option, you will see quite a few options for filtering and sorting your tickets. Given below is the list of all these options explained in detail –
The ticket status is the ticket’s current state, which indicates whether a ticket is resolved or not. These are all the available statuses – Open, Active, New, Closed, and All.
The Status is automatically updated, so for example, if an agent closes a ticket, then the status will be marked as Closed. Similarly, a new ticket will have the status New.
Custom Ticket Status #
Fluent Support has brought a new feature where you can add new statuses to the dashboard using Fluent Support’s Filterhook feature. Having a custom ticket status is crucial for most support teams. You can sort tickets based on the custom status, making prioritizing much easier.
Go to the functions.php & add the (below) code to create the Custom Ticket Status.
$statuses[‘unread’] = [‘Unread’];
Then, the custom ticket status was created (See the below screenshot). You can also customize the ticket status text according to your requirements.
This filter allows you to filter the tickets based on your business inboxes. So, if you have multiple business inboxes, then you can filter those from here.
This option lets you filter the tickets based on the type of products. Click on the dropdown to choose your preferred product, and you will get a list of tickets that are assigned to that particular product.
Support Staff #
Using the Support Staff option, you can filter the tickets depending on the support agent. That means only those tickets will show which are assigned to a particular agent.
This option allows you to filter the tickets based on the priority set by the admin/support agent. There are three levels of priority available: Normal, Medium & Critical. Remember that the tickets will be filtered here by the priority level set by the Admin.
Priority (Customer) #
This option allows you to filter the tickets based on the priority set by the customer. There are three levels of priority available: Normal, Medium & Critical. The tickets will be filtered here by the priority level set by the Customer.
This option allows you to filter the ticket based on the tags. Click on the dropdown to select your preferred tag. As a result, a list of tickets will appear with the particular tag assigned.
In the Search box, you can easily search for a ticket by typing a relevant keyword & then clicking the search icon. In the case of searching, you have to use some parameters before the search term in order to search accordingly.
