Tags can be defined as labels that are attached to help desk tickets. They are primarily used to organize and categorize tickets, but can also offer a preview of the ticket’s contents at a glance. Generally, tags are considered as one of the key features of help desk software because they can help you differentiate between different customer segments and support topics in a quick and easy way.
You can assign a “Twitter” tag to every ticket that’s from Twitter to make it easier to find inside your help desk. Alternatively, you can create an “urgent” tag as well to help you filter out urgent tickets from Twitter.
The system can automatically assign a dedicated department tag such as “marketing” or “IT support” based on the department the ticket is assigned to. Assigning tags in this manner can clearly showcase who’s responsible for solving each ticket.

Tags can bring organization and clarity to your help desk. Having an organized help desk can benefit you in many ways, mainly by improving agent efficiency which also improves response times, the quality of your customer service, customer satisfaction, and eventually sales and MRR (monthly recurring revenue).
Adding tags to tickets ensures that your agents can find them quickly. This improves agent efficiency and productivity and enables them to focus on solving tickets instead of wasting time looking for them.
The less time agents have to spend figuring out what tickets to solve and where to find them, the faster they can answer pending tickets. This of course improves response times and the quality of your customer service which then impacts customer satisfaction and retention.
The better service you provide, the happier your customers are. If you continuously provide exceptional service, they will have no reason to churn. They’ll keep coming back and become loyal customers to your business. This, in turn, will improve your sales and MRR as lifetime customer value increases alongside customer loyalty.
