These are Open, Answered, Customer-Reply, Awaiting Client Response & Closed. As the core system statuses, this means that tickets are set for them automatically by the system when various events occur. You can add additional statuses that you want and these will then appear in the admin ticket interface as options for you to assign tickets to when viewing or replying to them. The options you select allow you to determine how they are handled by the system.
- Status Color - A hexadecimal representation of the color to display that status in.
- Include in Active Tickets - Ticking this box includes the status in the tickets considered as open (or more precisely, not closed).
- Include in Awaiting Reply - Ticking this box includes the status in the tickets considered as awaiting a reply by staff.
* Departments are the categories of tickets and are user groups that inherit almost attributes & permission from XenForo's user group. Different staffs can be assigned to different departments so you can have the different areas handled by different customer if required. Example Sales departments, Support departments, Billing departments etc...
* Predefined Ticket Replies are useful if you get asked the same questions repeatedly via support tickets. With a predefined reply, this can be loaded into the reply form when replying to an user ticket and modified as required to answer the user's question.
