Thursday, December 1, 2016 2:52 PM

Whenever customers call in with a problem that requires a trouble ticket to be opened for them, the Post-to-Folder account in FocalScope allows agents to directly create new tickets in selected FocalScope folders. When tickets are directly posted to a folder, they are not sent out of FocalScope. The Post-to-Folder account is disabled by default, and this article will detail how to enable and use the Post-to-Folder feature.
