How to use SLA Goals as Escalations

If the time to resolve the ticket is approaching a breach of the SLA, an immediate reaction is essential. 

With SLA time goals set, you can stimulate escalation up the management hierarchy to reduce the risk of unfinished issues. 

This feature helps you to

  • Create an escalation path for customers to acquire the assistance they expect.

  • Automatically inform leads and managers when SLAs are about to be exceeded or already breached.

  • Convenience customers that you consider SLA breaches seriously by reporting them to higher management.

How to set it up?

You can define up to the four-time limits for each SLA configuration and choose the following automated action for exceeded issues:

  • Notification in a comment - when an assignment's target date or deadline is exceeded, the assignee will be notified and can reassign the ticket.

  • Changing assignee - the ticket will be reassigned if it has not moved to the Pause or Stop condition.

  • Changing priority - your tickets under the particular SLA will change priority as soon as they reach the limit time.

  • Changing status - once the limit has been reached, the system will change the status for related issues automatically.

  1. Click a “SLA Configuration” button on the right corner of the add-on.

  2. Select the configuration on the left side or create a new one.

  3. Scroll down to SLA time goals setting.

Also, you can turn on the Custom Fields feature to monitor your SLAs on the one Issue or list layout.  It displays the Target date and Status of the SLA goals you have selected to sync with Custom fields.

Make sure that your organization keeps moving punctually by defining an escalation. By notifying management parties about an elapsed goal, you can meet the time boundaries that you agree on with customers.
