[rt-users] Due date default time

Hi Kenn,


Thanks for the prompt reply. I obviously did not word my question
properly. We set the 'Due Date' manually, as there is no set SLA on
requests. It is the time (24hr) that the request is due that we want to
set to a default.


Regards, Jim

There are a couple ways. You can do it by setting the basics when you
configure a Queue. There is an option in "Basics that allows you to
specifiy the numbers of days when a ticket should be due. IT displays
"Requests should be due in ____ days." Filling this out would do it for
every ticket in a specific Queue. We also have another way as an
alternative. We have a CF defined as "Need-By Date" and we have a scrip
that puts that date into the Due date as the default when it is filled
out. Of course, the ticket owner is able to change whenever they want,
but it gives them an idea what the customer wants.

Hope this helps.
