Linking Tickets

When tickets about related issues arise, they can be linked to each other for easier reference. For example this could be useful if you have multiple customer complaints about the same shipment. Merged and split tickets are automatically linked.

Link types

There are different types of links between tickets as you might have already seen in Merging Tickets or Splitting Tickets: parent/child links and normal links. The first pair is used for split and merged tickets. The normal link is useful when there is no logical hierarchy between tickets.

However, if you have a main issue and want to create sub tasks, you could link to the main one as a parent of the sub tickets.

How to link

Make sure to have the ticket side panel open. Under the “Tags” section you can find the “Links” section:

Ticket pane: Links

Click the ➕ Add Link button to access the link dialog.

You can enter the ticket number of the ticket you want to link to (see 1). Alternatively, you can choose from the list below (see 2).

If the customer has an existing ticket, it will show up under “Recent customer tickets”. You can see your last viewed tickets under “Recently viewed tickets” anyway.

Additionally, you can choose the link type from the drop down menu. You can link to one or more tickets for each type.

After entering a ticket number or choosing one of the offered tickets from the list, click on the submit button and the tickets will be linked.
