Create a Scheduled Ticket


Scheduled tickets can be configured within an Enterprise Service Management (ESM) Ticketing Application so that routine work items can have tickets automatically created. This allows individuals to easily track common work, such as routine maintenance activities.

It should be noted that scheduled tickets cannot be viewed until after they have been created. However, ticket schedules can be viewed and modified as needed.
In order to create a scheduled ticket, at lest one ticket template must exist within the Ticketing Application. Read the Create a Ticket Template KB article for further details.
