Sometimes you know the ID or number of the ticket you need to work on, but finding it in the list of outstanding tickets can be time consuming. Especially, if there are a number of tickets outstanding in your queue.
With KBS, you can enter the post ID, or the number (if using sequential numbering) into the search field on the tickets list page prefixed with the
# character, and if a match is found, it will be displayed for you.
KB Support has a number of built-in messages that are displayed to customers during various activities taking place on the front end of your website – for example, when a ticket is submitted. We’ll refer to these messages as notices.
These front end notices can be changed if you want to do so with a small amount of code by hooking into the
WordPress locks posts whenever they are accessed in order to prevent multiple users from accessing and modifying the post at the same time.
This can be a hindrance to a support organisation and therefore, sometimes, it is necessary to enable multiple people to access and work on a ticket at the same time.
Enabling the sequential ticket numbers option ensures that all KBS tickets are in sequential order.
By default, the WordPress post ID will be used as ticket ID’s but this results in gaps within the number sequence due to the way in which WordPress works. For example, your first ticket may be assigned an ID of 100 but the next ticket may be 103. With sequential ticket numbers enabled you will ensure that an ID of 101 is assigned to the next ticket.
