Automatic internal comments

Rob G I'm New Here Dec 22, 2020

If you @ a co-worker on a service desk can that comment automatically switch over to being an internal comment to help lessen the risk that you'll accidentally respond to a customer

Hello Rob,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

When adding a comment on a Service Management ticket, agents must select first if they want to post an internal or external comment. It's not possible to switch the option automatically based on a value.

In this case, if agents are not using the new issue view, it's recommended to enable that, so they will make sure to select "Add internal comment" first and then add the comment. 

They need to go to Profile picture > Personal settings and enable Jira Labs.

Also, if they use the shortcut "M" to add the comment, the internal one will be selected by default.
