What is a Ticket Follower?

A "follower" in a ticket will get email alerts about all changes related to that ticket. For example, comments made by other users, files added to a ticket, status changes, etc.

Who is added as a Follower when a ticket is created?

When a ticket is created, the person who created the ticket and the person to whom the ticket is assigned are automatically added as followers.

Adding yourself as a Follower from the Ticket List

If you want to follow a certain ticket or set of tickets, you can do so by going to the Ticket Tool of your space. Then, click on the star located next to ticket number. All of the tickets you are following will be marked with a yellow star. If you want to stop following a certain ticket, just click again on the star. Tickets that you don't follow are shown with a grey star.

Note: You cannot un-follow a ticket you are assigned to. You need first to be un-assigned. When you are assigned a ticket, the Follower star will be red.
