A.3. Status

 < Day Day Up > 

A ticket's status describes its current work state. There are several choices for classifying each ticket:


New

The ticket has just been created and hasn't been touched yet.


Open

The ticket is being worked on.


Stalled

Due to circumstances beyond your control (waiting for the requestor to respond, waiting for the owner to return from Sri Lanka), the ticket isn't getting worked on right now. It will open again when someone adds a comment or reply.


Resolved

Hooray! Work on the ticket has been completed and is out of everyone's hair.


Rejected

The ticket is not the staff's problem and is not going to be resolved, but is, for some reason, worth recording in the system. For instance, if an employee asks approval for something ridiculous, you can reject the ticket, but it will stay in the database as evidence that the employee makes silly requests.


Deleted

The ticket never should have been in the system it was spam, it was a list of passwords, it was porn, use your imagination and is now being zapped for good.

It is not unusual for the status to change several times, from new to open to resolved, bouncing between open and stalled a few times.
