Often, you might want to bring in your specific help desk workflows into your problem statuses. For example, a problem might need specific inputs from your third party vendors. You might want to create a field called “Waiting for Vendor Response”. You can create these additional ticket statuses using custom statuses in Form Fields.
A quick guide to creating a custom ticket status in Freshservice:
Log in to your service desk as an administrator.
Go to Admin > Service management > Helpdesk settings > Field manager
Click on the Status field to add your custom statuses.
Hit the Add Item button at the bottom of the dialog box to add an empty textbox for a new problem status.
Type in a name for the status.
Click on the Done button to save the field.
Press the Save button in the Field Templates page to finalize your changes.
