Snooze an Issue

12/4/2020 9:47 AM

The snooze Issue functionality allows support agents to temporarily remove an Issue from their inbox. Snoozed Issues do not need to be addressed immediately. For example, an agent may leave the Customer a voicemail and snooze the Issue to check in with the Customer at a later time. Snoozing Issues is also helpful for administrators who may want to check the snooze reasons for why an Issue is taking longer to resolve. 

Snoozed Issues still appear in Issues list and can be un-snoozed any time. They will re-appear in the agents' inboxes automatically after a specified wake time. 

NOTE: in order to be able to snooze an Issue, you must be assigned as its Owner User.
