On our RT instance, we have three custom fields that work well in unison
The first is
Component which helps to categorize support issues
Then we have a pair called
Answer. If a ticket can be summarized into a question and answer a few lines long, staff are encouraged to fill out the question and answer section of the ticket (I have question and answer grouped as ‘Q and A’ using CustomFieldGroupings ).
I then have a saved search for all tickets where
Question is not NULL, ordered by
Component. This is an excellent way to find quick answers in the ticketing system.
Does anyone else have interesting, creative and useful custom fields?
