2-shift ServiceDesk and ticket routing


Maybe someone has a tip for us:

We want to assign incoming tickets to an agent group. 

Special feature is, we have two agent groups: 


1. internal IT (standard office hours)
2. External IT Service Desk (extended office hours)


How can we set this up so that, for example, from 06:00 PM to 10:00 PM all incoming tickets are assigned to extended support and the next business day from 08:00 - 05:00 PM the rest to inquiries?


sorry i can't find any option. :(

Thanks a lot and see you soon,

Hi! We do this by a workflow automator.

Event - when a ticket is raised

First Condition - match any

  • Condition -  Ticket Fields.Created during Non-Business Hours Default
  • Condition -  Ticket Fields.Created during Holidays Default

Second Condition - match any

  • Condition  - Ticket Fields.To Email is <email address>
  • Condition  - Ticket Fields.Group is HelpDesk

Action - Assign to Group After hours Support

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your suggestion, Ashley.


@mentos_blue Christian, as Ashley had mentioned configuring a workflow automator to route tickets between groups during non business hours would be the ideal approach. I have added a screenshot of a sample workflow automator which you can try at your end.


Let us know if this works for you.
