About Ticketing Queues

Ticket queues are perfect for large teams working on tickets. Ticket queues prevent multiple people from working on the same ticket at the same time. They also manage assignment of tickets so that they only go to owners who are ready to work on a ticket.

Qtip: Only Brand Administrators can create and edit ticket queues.

Ticket Assignment

Once queues have been set up, you can navigate between ticket queues by choosing one from the Ticket Queue dropdown on the upper-left.

Once inside the desired queue, you can click Assign me ticket from queue to automatically get a ticket from this queue.

Qtip: When a queue is selected, the tickets list will be filtered to show only tickets that have been taken from that queue. Not all the tickets waiting in the queue will be visible, since you need to use the assignment button to claim them.
Qtip: The Ticket Assignment Order during the set-up determines what order these tickets are assigned.

Tickets included in the queue

Tickets that match the following criteria are included in queues and can thus be assigned to people accessing those queues:

  • Tickets that match the conditions set
  • Tickets that do not have an individual owner assigned to them. Teams assigned to tickets are not considered individual owners.

Once a ticket is assigned to an individual, it is no longer in the queue.

Setting up Ticket Queues

  1. Go to Tickets.
    The global navigation is expanded and Tickets is selected
  2. Click Tools.
    Manage Queues under the far-right Tools dropdown
  3. Select Manage queues.
  4. Click Add Ticket Queues.
    Add Ticket Queue button in green
  5. Give your ticket queue a name.
    Ticket Queues window
  6. Decide what order tickets are assigned in. For example, when someone requests a ticket to work on, should they automatically get the oldest one? Or the highest priority?
  7. Click Add Conditions to determine which tickets are added to a queue.
    Qtip: You should add a condition related to ticket status – otherwise, closed tickets are included in assignment by default! For more on setting conditions, see the Conditions section below.
  8. Select Enable queue for all users to turn this queue on for all users, regardless of whether they are Brand Administrators. Brand Administrators can always see all queues.

  9. Click Save to save your queue.


Conditions are important in determining when tickets are added to a certain queue. This section will go over the different components involved in building complex conditions.

Types of Conditions

Conditions can be based on any of the following:

  • Project: The project the ticket was generated in.
  • Status: The status of the ticket.
    Qtip: It is advised you add a status-based condition. For example, you probably only want to assign tickets if their status is open – not resolved or closed!
  • Priority: The priority of the ticket.
  • Team: The team assigned to the ticket. If the person viewing the queue does not belong to this team, they will not see these tickets.

Adding and Deleting Conditions

After you add the initial condition, you can add conditions by clicking the plus sign ( + ) and remove conditions by clicking the minus sign ( ).

Conditions in a ticket queue

Conditions are joined by conjunctions and and or. In the example above, a ticket must be from the Bio 100 Registration project and have a Status of Open to appear in the Biology Department queue.

Adding Logic Sets

Logic sets add another layer of organization to your conditions. They are sets of multiple conditions joined by and or or. In the example below, there are two logic sets: the content above the or, and the content below the or.


Click Add Logic Set to add another logic set.

Example: In the image above, the logic determines that a ticket will be part of the Biology Department queue if it is from the Bio 100 Registration project and has a Status of Open – OR, if it doesn’t meet both of those conditions, it must be both from the project Major/Correlate Evaluation and be assigned to the Team biology Department.

Ticket Reporting

Ticket queues function with ticket reporting in CX Dashboards. You are able to report on the name of the queue and the time the ticket was taken from the queue.
