    For example, Resolved. 
  4. Configure or select a status option highlighted below.

    Choose option 1 to automatically close tickets after a specific point in time.  

    Choose option 2 to close tickets based on the client response in the ticket email. When the client clicks Yes in the email, the ticket is automatically set to Closed status. When the client clicks No in the email, the ticket is set to Open status and is returned to the ticket queue.

    Choose options 1 and 2 to ensure tickets are closed based on a point in time or the customer response. When you choose both the options, Web Help Desk closes the ticket automatically after the selected point in time without client's response.

  5. Click Save.
