To assign priority, labels, status, and inbox to tickets:

 

Your Help Desk inbox displays all the categories at the top. These categories become active when you select one or more tickets, as highlighted in the screenshot below. You can then assign different categories to the selected tickets.

 

 

1. How to assign or change the ticket priority

 

Tickets can be of low, normal, or high priority, depending on how critical a ticket is. ‘Normal’ is the default priority. To assign or change the priority of a ticket, select your desired priority from the ‘Priority’ dropdown menu.

 

Note: A ‘High’ priority ticket is indicated by a red flag, as highlighted in the screenshot below.

2. How to add or remove labels from tickets

 

Note: Labels are like tags that you can use to differentiate tickets. You can have labels depending on the nature of the issue, what it’s about, and so on. For example, you can create labels such as ‘Billing’ and ‘Bug’ and assign them to a ticket about an error message related to billing. The labels appear along with the ticket preview, as shown in the screenshot below, for instant identification of the ticket’s nature without the need to open it.

Status indicates the stage of a ticket from open to close. A ticket can have one of the following statuses: New, Open, Closed, Pending, Hold, Sent, and Overdue. However, you can only ‘Close’ the tickets from the ‘Status’ dropdown.

 

Note: The ‘Status’ dropdown is unavailable in case you have ‘Custom Fields’ enabled.
