I have WHD set up to assign tickets to techs based on location. This works well until I have a specific request type that needs to be assigned to a specific tech. I have tried many things none of which worked - I set up a new group and put that request type in the group and checked the box to assign to the group manager (made the tech the group manager), I also tried to leave Tech Group blank and hope it assigned it to the Lead Tech. Nothing has worked. I would like to stay away from creating a rule. Thank you for your help!
Try creating an action rule to move the ticket to the appropriate tech, with the time with criteria at ticket creation.
