Hi Virginia. For us, it's very important the categorization; we run a process builder to assign correctly the technicians after categorization.
If RF can auto-categorization, please let me know
Virginia Leandro we are merely using templates for staff (entries via console) and common tickets via self service, which are also templates. Next to that, we have some queue auto-assignment config in place to get the ticket with the correct team asap. But since these auto-assignments largely rely on the selected category, it does not help to pick the correct category.
Nice topic -
1. We expose First level to end users
2. Dependent pick list would be ideal. If we can set Parent and child
3. This will help agents too
4. Todays challenge cant see whole path on ticket easily
example if I select Login error unsr SQL > Database
Database > SQL > Login on console we just see Login …
5. Ability to select dropdown or make it dynamic would be nice
Also please consider this if we plan to change the design
Overall we do have users /staff selecting wrong categories which also impacts auto assignments and result in unwanted emails (wrong queue). Training seem to be the option to reduce this.
We do not use them at all in self service, only for selection of Service Requests. We use Service all over, based on account/client link people only see what they need to see.
Leave Category only for displaying bundling SR's.
(With some customers we sync Service and category in the back-end with a trigger)
I'm seeing more and more customers that are requesting auto categorization based upon email incident creation. We are utilizing Process Builder or Workflow to accomplish this, would be nice to add this with the same functionality as auto assignment of staff/queue.
