create a automation rule (not Legacy) that will reopen a ticket from customer comments

Hello Team...I am trying to work on a global rule (not Legacy) that will reopen a closed or resolved ticket if the customer (not agents) comments. As we are trying to move all Legacy rules to new automation this one seems a bit difficult to manage with new automation rules. The options I see...appear to trigger on any comments not just from customer. Please advise

Ah...thank you. I will try this should work

Jack...what if changed this rule so that comments to customer from agents would put the state to "waiting for

customer" pausing the SLA clock until the customer do I keep internal comments from triggering this rule?
