Currently it could take multiple internal comments before we come to a resolution of a reply for a customer.
Is there a way to notify the customer that a team is currently investigating a ticket without manually sending a comment that the team are looking into it?
Customers will be able to see a change in status as a ticket moves from "Open" or "Waiting for Support" to "In Progress", to show it is being investigated.
If this isn't sufficient, you could create an Automation rule to add an auto-comment!
For example, when an issue transitions from "Waiting for Support" I might want to add a comment stating it is being investigated with an SLA - so I might:
cool this is something I was after as you have explained above. My only issue now is I tried to add a "in progress" workflow but is something I am not very familiar with so I could not get it to flow correctly from the comment to "in progress" to eventually resolve the ticket.
Is there somewhere where I can learn about workflows and getting the right one in place?
Documentation to the topic "workflows" can be found here, sure:
But what Stephen implemented is an Automation rule. If you want to learn about them this would be the more feasible documentation:
Daniel has linked to some great documentation above - you can check out an overview of workflows here also: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-service-management-cloud/docs/overview-of-jira-cloud-workflows/
The ticket status is what comes with the ticket workflow. You can set whatever statuses you want in the workflow, Jira is good in setting workflows. Usually at the end of the workflow, when the ticket goes to status like Closed or Done, it is good to set Resolution field, where you mark what is the resolution - "Done", "Declined", "Fixed" or whatever actually happened. So the two are different, the customer on the portal will see the current status the ticket is in, so the status is the best way to present to the customer what is actually going on with the ticket right now.
