Improved ticket filtering functionality for Agents
We are pleased to announce our latest release which includes the addition of our new List Builder.
We have been working hard to continuously improve the power and functionality of filtering tickets in Deskpro. This feature gives Agents the ability to create Lists of queries, simplifying the process of creating ticket lists. An advanced builder is also available in the filter header.
List Builder (SC 72315 & SC 72181)
The list builder lets agents easily create custom ticket lists for their own, or global, use, it operates using simple query filters so that there is no need to use code to create search filters. Agents can then go back to these filters as needed to generate lists of tickets that match the specific criteria.
The list builder uses intuitive ‘is/is-not’ filter options which enable agents to quickly create highly specific ticket lists based on a number of query fields that will be saved on their lists tab. To access this feature, go to the primary drop-down on the navigation panel in the ticketing interface, from here you will be able to generate new list queries.
This feature enables agents to make full use of the filtering functionality that already exists in Deskpro in a more simple manner, for both personal and global ticket lists.
See above the intuitive drop-down ‘is/is-not’ filter that agents can use to create ticket lists, they can either select from the options or search for the specific query they want.
