Search Format - Take button

Hi everyone,

So I’m trying to build a search that I’ll put on a dashboard and on my RT At
a Glance.

I want to have the “Take” button in it just like the "10 newest unowned"
widget that is delivered with RT.

How do I do that in the query builder?

I know I can make the ticket id a link to take it… but I want a seperate
button as my users are used to that “Take” button…

Is it possible?

Thanks!
Mike.

Hey Mike,

           You need to do it using the Advanced Edit and add the following line,  if its is not the last part you will need to add a comma at the end.  The main problem is that it will not work well with tickets already owned, since you can not take an already taken ticket.

Mike,

I think you have to do that through the advanced view. If you look at
the default unowned ticket search in advanced view. To do this, click
on Edit, then click on the link next to “Edit the Predefined Search
Itself”, then click on the advanced link. The “Take” feature should be
implemented at the bottom of the format window. From there, you can
see how they define the location of the Take link and how it is
formatted. It looks to use a special location defined specifically for
the Take link: “loc(Take)

Much appreciated to both of you.

I didn’t think to click on that edit and steal it from there.

The search I was wanting to add it to was indeed a search of Owner = Nobody,
so Take will always work…

But thinking along those lines… could probably add a steal button to
searches that show tickets with owners…

loc(Steal)/TITLE:NBSP’

I haven’t tested the above, just took what Christopher wrote and adjusted
it.

Thanks folks!
