Creating Custom Ticket Fields


Use custom Ticket Fields to gather important information about your customers' support requests. You can add various custom field types to the contact form on your Help Center and Widgets. Agents can easily view and edit field responses in the side panel of each ticket. 
The more you know about your customers' issues, the better your replies will be!
