On the top navigation, you’ll notice that we’re in the “Mailbox” area and all your messages from your customers are shown here.

My Tickets

We start from the My Tickets tab which is the first option at the left navigation panel. Here one can check the tickets assigned to them specifically.

To-do List

It’s a list of the new tickets that have yet to be handled by an agent.


It includes tickets that have been received and acknowledged by the agents, but the query has yet to be settled. It’s a list of questions for which we are still waiting for further response from the customers.


A resolved ticket implies that it is in the next-to-last stage of its lifecycle where the customer’s concern has been addressed by the agent and is waiting for the customer to acknowledge and close it. When a customer responds to you or sends another email, the ticket will be reopened in the resolved status OR it will be Closed automatically by eDesk after a specified set of hours.


The search bar and the filter options are at the top of the mailbox on the right corner side of the agent’s eDesk account.

The Search box is used to find a ticket based on relevant keywords from customers’ details or order details as required.

An agent must first hover the mouse over the filter icon to generate a new filter or to view the existing ones.

Quick Filters

Tagging tickets enables us to categorize the tickets as per different criteria like a marketplace, query type, team, etc. and one of the best ways to organize the ticket queue.
