A ticket is a record of a customer issue or request. Ticket List and Ticketing are components of the Ticket feature that display a table of tickets and enable you to create, modify, and track tickets, regardless of the communication channel from which the tickets originate. You can create a ticket any time, including when interacting with a customer.

Depending on the configuration of the Ticket List and Ticketing components, you can:

  • Update multiple tickets together.
  • Delete, export, and import tickets.
  • Play an audio recording.
  • Call a function through a function button. For example, you can create, update, or delete a ticket in an external application, such as Salesforce, or return data from an external application and display that data in a field on the LiveVox platform.

Based on the web widget configuration, a ticket can be created automatically when a customer using the web widget submits a ticket. 
In addition to the listed options, you can Manually Link Interactions to Contacts or Tickets and Create Manual Alerts.

The Ticketing component additionally enables you to:

  • View the Ticket Dashboard. For more information, see Tickets Dashboard.
