How to Manage or Categorize Tickets in Bulk


ProProfs Help Desk allows you to categorize multiple tickets based on their severity, stage, and nature with the help of predefined sections within your inbox. This allows you and your agents to handle more important tickets first. You can also move multiple tickets between inboxes so that the right agent can work on them instantly. Tickets can be categorized according to priority, labels, status, and inboxes.


For example, a company that provides IT support services can use this feature to prioritize important tickets and resolve them faster.


Benefits of managing tickets in bulk:


  • Faster resolution of customer issues: By categorizing tickets, companies can quickly identify and prioritize critical issues that require immediate attention.
  • Improved customer experience: Companies can improve customer satisfaction and loyalty by providing timely customer support through effective ticket management.
  • Better allocation of resources: By categorizing tickets, companies can allocate their resources more effectively and efficiently.
