Ticket Status Lifecycle Extension - Zoho Desk Knowledgebase

Ticket Status Lifecycle Extension for Zoho Desk

A ticket can go through various statuses once it gets created. For example, upon its creation, ticket status is Open. When an agent replies to the ticket, its status will change to Resolved. Similarly, if the customer responds to the same ticket, then the status becomes Open again. After that, when the ticket stays unresolved for a predetermined time, it takes status Escalated. Finally, once the issue is resolved and the requestor acknowledges the resolution, the status will be set as Closed. Tracking these updates on a ticket is essential as they signify the root cause of your support inefficiencies.

The Ticket Status Lifecycle extension allows you to see all status updates of a ticket laid out over a timeline view. It covers every aspect of a ticket's status across its life cycle. Additionally, the extension also shows you who effected the status change and the amount of time the ticket spent at each status.

Key Features
  1. Track the time spent by the ticket in each status to identify potential issues that cause delays in resolution.
  2. Filter the timeline to show only those statuses linked to the states that you select. For example, you can choose the "On hold" state to view status updates like Waiting on Customer, Pending Approval, etc.
  3. View the date and time of the status change and the name of the agent who updated the status.
