We use TeamWork Desk for ticket management and there are several ticket statuses:
- Active is where a ticket has been received or is being worked on
- Waiting on Customer is where the ticket can’t proceed until the customer provides an answer to a question on the ticket
- Solved is where GrowCreate have resolved the issue, but the customer needs to confirm they are happy with the resolution
- Closed is where the customer has closed the original ticket they raised
