It is possible to add new comments to existing Tickets. For example when you have new information or an additional question regarding the same ticket.
Once a ticket is created it will receive the status New. The ticket will go through a series of statuses before the issue will be closed.
In case the status is set to Waiting for Customer action is required from the person who reported the issue or one of his colleagues. Just add a comment and if required attach requested data.

Email notifications will be send by the system to the reporter. These notifications contain a link to the ticket and a description of the last taken action on the ticket. For example the last added comment.
The first notification received by the reporter is a e-mail with a notification on the ticket creations including the content of the ticket and a link.
Notifications will also be send when comments are added or edited, tickets are closed, reopened or when a QPS support Team member started working on the Ticket.
Set some rules in your email system on these notifications to automatically move them to a separate folder to keep a nice overview on all the notifications received.
Notify other people
A ticket is created by employee A. He also wants employee B and C to be informed on this ticket. All work for the same company.
Option 1: employee B and C also have a login to the QPS Support Ticket System. The reporter of the ticket (Employee A) simple forwards the email notification to employee B and C. They log in into the system and set a watch on this issue. After a Watch is set they also will receive email notifications of this ticket. They also have the option to add comments or attachments to the ticket.
Option 2: employee B and C do not have access. They could request a login. If they are not entitled for a login due to company policies the other employees could be kept up to date by the reporter. The reporter could forward all the notification emails to employee B and C.
A ticket is created by employee A. He also wants a person from another company to be informed on this ticket.
As only people working for the same company have access to the tickets created with a security level set for this company, the other person will not have access to this issue. It does not matter if he has access to the QPS Support Ticket System or not.
In this case the only option is forward the email notifications to this person.
Notifications will be send to the reporter of the Ticket. If you want to be notified on Tickets of which you are not the reporter, you could set a so called watch on these tickets. Watchers will be notified as well.
To set an watch on a Ticket, open the ticket and click on the little envelope at the right side of the screen.
