Powerful workflow using sub-tickets.



Efficient and precise escalation of tickets to other parties and escalations. Escalator helps agents manage complex tickets by giving them an easy way to link, split or escalate tickets. It's been designed to be easy to use, while supporting a wide range of workflows, processes and business rules.

Core Features

  • Easily link related tickets.
  • Split tickets into smaller, distinct tasks via sub-tickets.
  • Quickly escalate tickets to other agents, groups or even third parties.
  • Save time, reduce mistakes or limit access to sensitve customer data by pre-configuring escalations.
  • Easily include/exclude comments and attachments when escalating, so only relevant information is included on sub-tickets.
  • Monitor the status of linked tickets from within the app.

Escalator works by creating sub-tickets (or linking to existing tickets). This allows agents to break down complicated issues into smaller, simpler, more manageable tasks. Sub-tickets can then be assigned to other agents, groups, or third parties.

Use sub-tickets to involve other departments within your organization, to bring in specialized knowledge or to simply help spread the workload. Create or link as many sub-tickets as needed.

Linking tickets

Effortlessly link recent viewed tickets, bookmarked tickets, search for a specific ticket or enter the ticket id.

Splitting tickets

Split (or 'fork') tickets on the fly by creating new ad hoc sub-tickets. When splitting a ticket, the agent can decide whether to copy over all ticket data, or just create an empty linked ticket.

Escalate tickets

Escalate tickets to other agents, groups or third parties. Escalations can pre-configured, so agents can create and populate sub-tickets with just a few clicks. When esclalating a ticket, agents can easily select which comments and attachments to copy over to the new sub-ticket.

With pre-configured escalations, admins can choose which fields and ticket data is copied to the sub-ticket. Light agents or 3rd party escalations can be set as the requester, to facilitate notifications and make interaction with your team simpler. You can insert placeholders into the subject, set core fields (status, priority, ticket type, etc), custom fields and a whole lot more.
