Auto Triage, powered by Freddy, auto-classifies incoming tickets to save agents’ time and effort. Auto Triage learns from existing ticket data to provide ticket field value suggestions to agents for new tickets.
By default, Freshdesk enables Auto Triage for the ticket field Priority. You will also see Auto Triage enabled by default for ticket Type and Group fields for accounts with a minimum of 2000 tickets. Additionally, you can also request Auto Triage for any other ticket fields.
Once Auto Triage is set up and enabled, you will start seeing suggestions for the enabled ticket fields on all tickets.
In this article, we’ll discuss how to set up and manage Auto Triage suggestions for ticket fields. For details on how to use the suggestions, see Using Auto Triage suggestions.
