Larger support operations can easily receive multiple support tickets related to the same problem, especially if its a new issue. Managing multiple tickets that are all about the same problem can easily become a problem itself. Imagine having to update 10, 100 or even 500 tickets just to give them all the same status update? Under this kind of a scenario this Issue Tracking add-on helps you to create a group of tickets and manage the group as a single entity.
Here are a couple of scenarios where you might want to manage certain tickets as a group:
You release a new version of your software and you start to get reports of an issue with a particular version of Windows. Soon, multiple tickets start to arrive with similar issues. With this add-on you can assign each ticket the same ISSUE NUMBER. You can then add comments to the issue which will automatically update the clients on all associated tickets including sending emails to agents and users.
Lets say you run a business that sells food and you’re faced with a contamination issue where you have to recall certain products. Each support ticket that comes in will be assigned an issue number and any comments made on the issue will automatically flow through to all the associated tickets. When an issue is closed all associated tickets are automatically closed.
