Auto-assign Rule for teamsUpdated a month ago

Auto assignment behavior controls if tickets are automatically assigned to a team based on certain conditions - like when a new ticket is created via Chat -> assign to the Support team. 

This can be especially useful if you have specific teams dedicated to handling a specific group of tickets, like separate teams for handling Email and Chat.

In our example, we'll be creating a team that handles Chat tickets, but the principle is the same regardless of what kind of team you'd like to make.


You don't want any auto-assignment

When you create a team and are prompted to create a Rule to go along with it, simply click Create Rule Later.
