I have setup SLA for "Time to resolution". When the status is WORK IN PROGRESS, it will start counting the time.
Then when we are waiting for the reply from customer, we put the status as WAITING FOR CUSTOMER, which will stop counting the time.
Problem is from here: I have added a condition to start counting for time when there are a comment from customer. I have added a comment as customer but the counting do not start.
Is there any place I need to configure? I'm not sure if I need to (and I suppose I need to?) configure somewhere so that status will also become WORK IN PROGRESS.
Hi @Riki YAMASHITA,
We have noticed in testing that results may be inconsistent when you have multiple roles in your service desk project. When you are both an agent and a customer in your service desk, the evaluation of the condition that you are posting as a customer does not trigger the rule correctly.
If that is what you are seeing during testing, don't worry. Test again with an account that is exclusively defined as a customer. It should work correctly then.
I suspect that is what is happening in the case you are describing.
I had same feeling as you have mentioned so I’m using an user that does not have any role. I’m saying “no role” is because when I add customer from “Customer” “Add customer” button, this customer do not appear in the list of “Project settings” “User”. So I assume it has “no role” or probably only “Service Desk Customer”.
Don’t we have to do anything in the workflow?
The user's role should be Service Desk Customer.
You don't need to do anything in your workflow, but you would normally have to set up an automation rule to automatically transition your ticket from Waiting for Customer to In progress when a customer comments.
Legacy automation had a built-in automation rule for that, called Transition on Comment. You can find an example on how to trigger the rule in the template library over here (you'll need to change the action to transition issue instead of sending email, though).
I used Transition on Comment in Automation as you have suggested and status has become In progress from Waiting for Customer, thanks! But I still can't still start SLA.
The condition to change the status is "When user is customer" and "When status is Waiting for customer". System understand that the user I'm using is "Customer", but SLA don't seem to recognize this user as "Customer". Any idea?
As soon as you have your automation is in place and automatically changes the status of your ticket, you can start and pause your SLA timer just from the status transitions.
e.g.: start when ticket is created, stop when ticket is resolved and pause when the ticket is in status waiting for customer.
