How can I make sure a ticket won't be assigned to an agent that is offshift?

@Emilio Hopp Welcome to the Atlassian Community.   I believe this is similar to the questions that was asked here:

Unfortianlty there is nothing that exists at this time to meet this requirement.

Thanks for your answer

Hi @Emilio Hopp

  • Please refer to this video on how to create an automation rule to auto assign tickets:
  • After you create the rule, you can update the "Defined User List" to only include assignees that are in the shift.  If they are off-shift, the project admin can update the list.
  • It's not ideal, but it's an option.  

I hope this helps.

Our work-around for this was to set up a group email address that outside tickets were assigned to. Rule is to work for the oldest to the newest. It has worked for us, but we are not a huge corporation like Amazon.
