How to Add Child Tickets to a Ticket


Child tickets are smaller sub-tickets added to the parent ticket. They are used to divide a ticket into a group of tickets, each of which can then be worked on by a different agent/team. This ensures that various aspects of a customer issue can be worked on at the same time.

Benefits of Child Tickets:

  • Reduces ticket response time substantially
  • Organizes a large task into a group of smaller efficient tasks
  • Gives each agent more visibility and accountability
  • Ensures better support to the customer



Imagine a marketing firm that receives a request for a new marketing strategy for an upcoming product from a customer. The various tasks that the firm must do include market research, background checks, legal verifications. A new parent ticket is then created and all the required tasks are divided among various teams/agents with the help of a child ticket. All teams then complete their part of the job.
