Open Tickets Age: See your open tickets at-a-glance

Hi everyone! For this week’s Gauges and Gadgets, we’ll be focusing on “Open Tickets Age”! See our gadget from last week.

Platform: ConnectWise On-premise.

Open Tickets Age
This gadget is a graphic bar chart that shows you the number of open tickets by status, location, business unit, board per whatever time you set the parameters to. For example if you set a parameter to “Over 3 weeks” it shows the open tickets that are older than that age for the previously set parameters (board, business unit, location etc)

Double click on a bar in the graphic chart to do a drilldown and see a sortable grid of the open tickets by the selected age bar. By clicking on the ticket number you will be directed to the ticket within ConnectWise.

Adjust this gadget to your liking by setting the parameters of the “Open Tickets Age”:
