What is the purpose of the priority colours in GGUS?
The priority colours in GGUS should help supporters getting an overview of the most important tickets. The priority colours have no impact on the metrics generated with the GGUS report generator or manually by the GGUS team.
Which colours are used?
Currently the following colours are used for open states:
- amber and
For terminal states GGUS uses
- light blue for status “unsolved” and
- blue for status “solved” and “verified”.
Which fields are affecting the priority colour algorithm?
The priority colour algorithm is affected by the status value and the priority of a ticket. The priority colour calculation for tickets in status "assigned" is based on different values than for tickets in any other open status.
Are office hours and weekends considered in the priority colour algorithm?
Office hours and weekends are taken into consideration when calculating the priority colour . The system assumes usual office hours from 07:00 to 15:00 o’clock UTC from Monday to Friday for all support units. Different time zones are considered as far as possible.
Is the priority colour calculated different for the various status values?
The priority colour calculation starts after a ticket gets assigned to any support unit. The support units should change the ticket status to "in progress" or any other open status after receiving the ticket. Thus the support unit has responded to the ticket (response time). After such a status change the priority is reset to "green" and the calculation of the priority colour starts again from scratch.
The priority colour for tickets dealing with middleware related problems is calculated according to the Quality of Support the PTs voted for. The priority colour changes after a dedicated amount of working hours as listed in the table below. The priority colour calculation is processed every 15 minutes.
|QoS Level||Ticket priority||Colour||Working hours||Colour||Working hours||Colour||Working hours|
What is the algorithm for tickets other than middleware?
