Bulk actions allow you to run a set of ticket changes against one or more tickets. For example, you can use bulk actions to escalate all open, unassigned, urgent priority IT requests for laptop repairs. Using Bulk Actions, you can select and escalate all of these requests at the same time.

Bulk action can also be saved as a template to be used and shared with other users.

  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and locate the Bulk Action box.
  5. In Bulk Action, click [+].
