Ticket Pool explained
In the Ticket Pool of MyDispatch you will see the list of tickets that require appointments to be scheduled:
The hold tab will contain tickets in other statuses, awaiting some action or suspended for some reason.
In hold tab you can find tickets in statuses like: Blokade, Blockade, Diagnose, OnHold, Suspend, OnHold_Parts, Pending Customer, Pending Enduser, Pending Parts, Pending Partner, Pending Yield, Parts Qualification, Clarification, Pending warehouse.
Tickets in these statuses cannot be assigned to the engineer, as for some reason they are awaiting additional action, before being scheduled.
A tool-tip with rich details like SLA is visible, when hovering over LSDT / Appointment date in Ticket Pool and Ticket Hold:
PARTS QUALIFICATION STATE is highlighted in the tool-tip and the state blinks in the Overview for a better differentiation. Be reminded that this is a special state.
It is possible to search for tickets by typing in text or numbers in the filter field. The search will be made only for tickets in a selected dispatch group and the results will be showing up while typing.
If you decide to search for a ticket with a CNI number, then the search will cover the calendar area also.
You will find three different row colors in the Ticket Pool. They highlight, if a ticket is close to the LSDT or has even breached it:
- Dark grey = in SLA, with appointment
- Light grey = SLA ends on chosen date
- White = SLA is in future
Additionally the letter color can be either black or red:
- Red letters = Appointment or LSDT lays in the past
- Black letters = Appointment or LSDT is on chosen date or in future
Tickets with short SLA are highlighted in red in the Ticket Pool. This works for tickets with SLA type: SBD_4H, 4BH, SBD_4H_9x5 and SBD_4H_24x7:
