You can create a single type of credit which will group together the 3, it depends on the management of each case.

When a ticket is created, you can choose whether or not to deduct the corresponding credits.

In our example, we have chosen to deduct each action.

  • If we are doing a follow-up, we can deduct the credit assigned by default:

add credit on ticket
  • The same for a task:

add credit on task
  • And for a solution :

add credit on solution

In the Credit section of the ticket you can see a summary of credits spent and remaining
