Automation Rules add comment and prevent from switching status

I've got an automated comment that gets added to a ticket after 6 days "Hi there, we haven't heard from you in a while. If you would like to keep this request open or if you have additional information, just reply. If not, issue will be closed in 2 days."

The issue is that when I add the comment it switches the status from Waiting on Customer to Waiting on Support.  I have to manual update the status so it will get auto closed in 2 days.  I can't figure out how to add a comment and prevent it from switching status.


Any suggestions?  Thanks All

Hi @Ann_Marie_Kjerland 

That is a popular automation. 

Here is my default automation rule and I know it works and it doesn't put the request back into Waiting for Support, instead it Resolves the request. 

I have another rule that sets the status to Closed after 2 days.

Thanks for the tip I'll try that
