Ability to update categories etc

It would be really useful if we were able to update the categories available and for the change to reflect in all previous tickets.

For example, a ticket is categorised as


3rd party system


ABC product name changes to XYZ 

Currently, if I change the category in the field templates, it removes the 3rd level "ABC" from any existing tickets and does not apply the "XYZ"

At the very least it should retain the "ABC" for reporting.

I am presuming that this is actually quite a big change as it requires the underlying data to be relational whereas it is currently just free text

I have the same request

I've been working in restructuring my categories as well and I am having the same issue. 

Hi Freshservice Team, as this initial post is 6 years old - do you have any information for us about whether this issue is resolved?
