New ticket layout change

Hi

I am in the process of creating an electronic change request system in
RT. At the moment the layout is as follows:

| Create new ticket | Basics
| Requestor | Queue
| CC | Status
| Admin CC | Owner
| Subject |-------------------------------------------
| Describe Issue |Assets
| |-------------------------------------------
| |Custom Fields
| |CF1
| |cf2
| |cf3
| |cf4
| |cfr5
| |cf6
| |cf7
| |etc
How do I move the Custom field section to the left and across the whole
page for this one queue if possible?
How do I change the filed sizes for CF’s on a per field basis?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I have searched for the 2 queries. On the first found no answers.
The second there are multiple answers, but I could not get any of them
to work on a per field basis. Maybe just missing something.

for this one queue if possible?

JavaScript.

I’ve not rearranged the page with JS, but I’d imagine it could be
done. Good luck.

JavaScript.

I have done quite a bit of work with CFs via JS and there is some
overhead to pay to get initially setup due to the JS needing to use
the ‘id’ of the element. I’d be happy to write up what I’ve done, but
let me know if you’re serious about the undertaking - it’ll probably
take 10 or 20 minutes to write it up.

I suspect the JavaScript answer is probably the cleanest and most flexible way.

In our environment, I have a number of departments that have all asked for their own (small) customizations for the SelfService Create Ticket page.

First I copied the CreateTicketInQueue.html page into local/html/SelfService.
Then I made a simple change to it: An ‘if’ statement that checks for the presence of an HTML file in the same SelfService directory, matching the queue name.
If that HTML file is found, it will load that HTML file instead of the default ‘Create.html’ file.
For example, If I have a queue named “Helpdesk” and a local/html/SelfService/Helpdesk.html file is found, RT loads that one.

Then within each of the queue name HTML files I customize which fields are available (Sometimes), change how they appear on the page, add ‘help’ text for some fields, etc.
