Separate new email when received from closed ticketSOLVE
Jun 9, 2020 11:57 AM
Many of our clients have a tendancy to go to their last support ticket email string and use it to send in a new support request after their original request has already been resolved and closed. Our agents will reply and since this email is associated with an already created ticket - even though it is a new issue - we are not getting an accurate reflection of the number of support tickets are receiving.
We have been able to setup a workflow that would create a new ticket based on the ticket status combined with the last client reply being greater than a set timeframe. That addresses the ticket creation but the email with the new issue still gets associated to the old ticket. We need to be able to "split" the latest email received from the previously processed email string and associate it to the new ticket.
Any suggestions, ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the mention @PamCotton
It is working as expected, but not as required by everyone facing this problem. You're right Pam, the only workaround (that I know about) is to manually log the reply to a new ticket.
At present, there's no way to split a ticket. You can merge tickets, but not split them - so you are currently reliant on your support agents using a process rather a function of HubSpot.
There is an idea here in the forum for ticket-splitting. Please add your vote 🙂
While you are voting, this one is also worth your vote because it potentially offers another workaround to this problem: If you could calculate the time a ticket remains in a certain state (i.e. Closed) then a report would quickly show which old tickets were being recycled by customers and your support agents.
