Creating New Tickets:

The system auto-populates fields from 'Freshdesk fields'. If you do not see your field, refresh the page and try again.

To fetch the existing ticket status using Freshdesk integration, you first need to collect the ticket number from the visitor using a 'Collect Input' action block and save it in a variable.

On the right panel, choose the variable which contains the ticket number.

While fetching the status of the ticket number entered, WotNot will receive the following fields which you can choose to save in WotNot variables to be rendered on the chatbot as a message.

// Some code
cc_emails/fwd_emails/reply_cc_emails/ticket_cc_emails: [""]
