Delete a Ticket

Everyone can delete their own Tickets as long as they are not Locked. Locked Tickets have been approved/reconciled for invoicing and cannot be changed. You need the Ticket Delete Permission to delete others’ Tickets.

To delete a ticket:

  1. Find the Ticket you want to delete.
  2. Click the More button from the menu at the top of the Ticket View page. In the dropdown menu, select Delete Ticket.

    Delete Ticket

  3.  A window will pop up asking you if you are sure you want to delete the ticket. Select Continue to confirm the delete.



Alternative Options to Deleting (Close & Merge)

If you want to still be able to access the work completed on the Ticket, but want to remove the Ticket from your reporting, you may want to change the Ticket to a Closed Status or Merge it with another Ticket.

Close the Ticket

Close a Ticket by clicking on the Closed Status at the top of the Ticket View page. 

You may need to set up a progression that moves the Ticket from an open/active status to a closed status. Learn how to set up Progressions.

Note: Closed Tickets are automatically hidden from search results.

Merge the Ticket

This is ideal for handling duplicate or similar Tickets from the same client.

Note: Merged Tickets cannot be separated. The activities from the merged Tickets will be retained, but everything else will be deleted. 

To merge tickets:

  1. View the Ticket you want to keep.
  2. Click the More button at the top of the Ticket View page. In the dropdown, select Merge in a Ticket.

    Merge in a Ticket

  3.  A list will appear of all Tickets associated with the same Company. Check the box next to each of the Tickets you want to merge with this Ticket.

  4. Click the Merge Tickets button.
