Adding a TextIt Ticketing Service

TextIt makes it easy to escalate contacts from automated flows with human agents, which means your team can assign, respond to, and close tickets, all without ever leaving your workspace. You can quickly see tickets that need your attention or tickets that have yet to be assigned in the unassigned folder.

Adding agents

Let's start by adding agents to handle the ticket. First, go to your workspace settings page by clicking the settings icon at the bottom left.
Then click on Users .

On this page you can invite your agents by entering their email address and assign the role of "agent" from the drop-down menu and 'Save changes'.

Opening a ticket in a flow

You can start a ticket at any point in your flow using the 'open a ticket with a human agent' action from the drop-down.

Pick a topic or category. To create a new topic or category, simply type the name in the bar and it will be created automatically.
Assign an agent to the ticket. See the section above on how to add new agents to your workspace.
Add any information you want your agents to see while interacting with the contact. You can reference any result from the flow using @results.

Viewing and handling tickets

Click the tickets tab in your workspace to view all tickets. The all folder is for all tickets while the unassigned folder is for tickets that are yet to be assigned.
Once you choose a folder, toggle open or closed using the drop-down menu to view resolved or unresolved tickets. You can also view tickets in a particular category or topic, in this example, under "GeneraL" or "Pets". General is a default category.

Opening and closing tickets

Once the ticket has been resolved, you can mark the tickets as resolved by clicking the checkmark on the open ticket at the top right.

If you need to reopen a ticket, all closed tickets have a button to reopen them.

Contact details

Need more information about the contact? Click on the 'fields' tab at the top next to the 'chat' tab. On this page, you'll see featured fields at the top. If you wish to view all fields, check the 'Show All' box.

Assigning tickets to teammates

Aside from assigning tickets from the flow, you can always assign tickets directly from the Tickets tab. Select the unassigned ticket and click on the 'Assign' button at the top:

Starting a flow after a ticket is closed

It is essential to follow up with your contacts once an agent has resolved an open ticket. You can start the contact in a flow immediately after closing a ticket. Navigate to the "Triggers" tab, click 'New Trigger', then scroll down to find start a flow after a ticket is closed and choose your flow.
