Customizing ticket fields

Cayzu allows you to customize your ticket fields to suit your needs. By default, we include a bunch of fields like Email Address, Full Name, Product, Type, Priority, Subject and Description. We allow you to add custom fields to capture specific information that is important to your business and customers.  Adding custom fields allows you to ask the right questions from the beginning effectively reducing cycle times.    

What are the default fields in Cayzu?
Each Cayzu account comes with a set of default fields that are required for your help desk to function correctly and serve as an important role for your agents to resolve issues. For this reason, the default fields cannot be removed from your ticket form.


Default Field: Email Address
Why it's important: The system uses this field to look up the user to associate the ticket with or create a new account.


Default Field: Full Name
Why it's important: If the email address is not found, the system will auto-create the account and use the full name as the contacts name.


Default Field: Product
Why it's important: This is to define what product the customer is having problems with.


Default Field: Type
Why it's important: This helps the customer define what the ticket is about, complaint, issue, question, etc.


Default Field: Priority
Why it's important: If the customer feels the issue is off high importance, they can change the priority of a ticket.


Default Field: Subject
Why it's important: Allows the customer to specify what the ticket is about.


Default Field: Description
Why it's important: Allows the customer to elaborate on the problem they are having.
