I don't want customers to escalate tickets

My customers see the "Escalate" button on their tickets, how can I disable that and in which logic do customers scalate tickets themselves?


Help me disable that for customers, thanks.

Hi Sammaël,

You can remove the option by doing the following:

  1. Go to the Project Settings
  2. Edit the Workflow with the Escalation
  3. Click on the transition from waiting on support to escalate or vice versa and you should see a checkbox on the right that says show in customer portal:

  4. Uncheck the box and save the workflow and your portal should now be missing the Escalate button:

Thank you for your response.


On my project, is unchecked and still customers can see it, what am I forgetting?
