Multiple customers per ticket


I’m quite new with Zammad. We are evaluating it in the context of the IT helpdesk of our laboratory, to replace GLPI, currently used. One very useful feature in GLPI that doens’t seem to exist in Zammad is the possibility to add several customers in the ticket. The typical use case is a problem affecting several persons : one report the problem with we want to avoid every person affected by the same problem (and knowing the others, as they are all internal users) opens a new similar ticket. GLPI supports the concept of multiple customers : one opens the ticket and we (the operators) adds the other ones that get then notified on every action on the ticket.

Any plan to implement such a feature? Or any suggestion on how to implement this workflow with existing features?




Answering to myself, I realize that my post duplicates Add observers to tickets which is closed I think. Not easy to identify the related posts.

Answering again to myself… Even if the feature doesn’t exist in Zammad yet, I managed to find a workaround that may be useful for others: to involve somebody else than the initial customer, it is possible to answer the customer request using the “Reply” button rather than a note in the web discussion. The added recipient will receive the answer by email and if they answer the email (coming from the email address associated with the group), their answers will be added to the ticket.

I’m using Zammad 5.4.0, not sure if it was working before…
