    Use Cases

    OTRS offers a standard opportunity to watch the ticket. But how to set one or several watchers for the ticket, if you need it? Now you must send a link for the request to the agent, so that he clicks the "Watch" button. How to understand which agent is monitoring the ticket? In standard OTRS this is not possible.

    Our module can significantly improve the efficiency of the “Watch” functionality.


    Key features

    • Set by the watcher any agent on the rights basis in the current queue
    • Displaying all the watchers on the ticket


    User's Manual

    Set and unset of yourself as a watcher of the ticket

    If the agent group is set in the Ticket :: WatcherGroup setting, then the “Watch” button is displayed in the agent menu, and when it is clicked, the agent becomes the ticket watcher (Figure 3.1). If the agent group is not set in this setting, but is set in one of the settings Ticket :: WatcherManage, it will be able to set watchers, but will not be able to watch the ticket itself.

    Figure 3.1. Setting yourself as a ticket watcher


    After the agent has become a watcher of the ticket, he, along with the other watchers of the ticket, is displayed in the “Watchers” block (Figure 3.2). To remove yourself from the list of watchers, you must click the “Unwatch” menu button.

    Figure 3.2. Removing yourself from the list of ticket watchers

    3.2. Set and unset of other agents as watchers of the ticket

     To set (or remove) an agent-watcher, you must click on the gear icon in the “Watchers” block (Figure 3.3). Then a window with a list of all agents will be opened. You need to tick the checkboxes in front of those agents that you need to add to the list of watchers and click the “Send” button (Figure 3.4).
