Change ticket owner?

edited February 2014 in General Discussions
Hi Guys,

again another question by me :D

Since we didn't use osTicket since the beginning of our company (how the hell was that possible anyway) we often get emails from previous customer to our own "private" company email addresses. The purpose from this emails should be for internal usage only from now on, so we want to communicate with our customers only from osTicket since a couple of weeks. 
I've told my colleagues to forward the email to osTicket, so that a new ticket gets created.

But here comes the tricky part:
Somehow it's not possible to change the ticket owner.
( is my company email, from which i've forwarded the customer request)
Let's say the user John Die exists, I assume that there should be a drop down list or something else. But nothing happens.

For now there's only the workaround to create a new ticket and close this one, but if the user already exists the problem reoccurs.
So therefore i can only create new tickets for user that don't exist in the system.

Maybe you can help me out.

best regards,

    Beside the error of changing the owner, following a simple suggestion to deal with the emails that will be send directly to your email account and not to osTicket:

    Just grant access to the ticket inbox and add then that shared inbox for you and your team members, so when you then receive a mail, just move the mail to the shared ticket inbox and the ticket will automatically be created under the name and email address of the original sender ;)

    Since we deal often with that issue, that's our way to get around this.
  • This is what I get when open my developer console in my browser and start typing in the textfield to seach a user:

    400 (Bad Request)

    kind regards
