Add ticket statuses
To create a custom ticket status:
1. From Admin (on the sidebar), click Custom Fields.
The Custom Fields page appears.
2. From the Ticket tab, under Default Fields, click the edit icon alongside the Status field.
The Ticket Status Fields window appears.
3. Click Create status.
4. Enter the status name.
5. Select the status behavior.
Note: The selected behavior will affect the SLA attached to the ticket, as well as any reports and ticket automation rules associated with the ticket status type.
6. Click Apply.
The new status value is added and now appears as a 'Status' field option in all tickets.
Note: Once a custom ticket status is added, you cannot edit the Status Behavior, but you can edit the status name. If you need to change the behavior, delete the status (and remap the ticket's status behavior), and then create a new custom status.
