How to create an automated ticket
Here’s how to do it:
- Navigate to Settings > Automation > Scheduled Process > + Add Scheduled Process
- Configure your automated ticket’s details, including frequency (hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly), subject, request type, and owner.
- To streamline the process of automatic activity generation, you can use the form builder’s “Default Value” field. By adding a description in this field, you can ensure that all activities are created with consistent and informative content.
- To ensure the correct assignment of this automatic activity, within the workflow builder, make sure to designate the assignee in the initial stage as either an individual user or a group.
- Save your settings to activate automated ticket generation, and the system will generate tickets according to your schedule.
Note: Hourly tickets are generated precisely every hour. Weekly tickets are created every Monday at 9:00. Monthly tickets are generated on the last day of each month, and daily tickets are created each morning at 9:00.
