How to Merge Tickets

How to Create Your Own "GoTo" ticket button

You can create a browser "button" that will jump directly to a specific ticket in WebHelpdesk using a “bookmarklet” (a special sort of browser bookmark that contains Javascript).

Using Firefox, you can easily add this to your Bookmarks toolbar. (View -> Toolbars -> Bookmarks Toolbar if you don’t already have it enabled).

Right-click on a blank area of the toolbar, then choose “New Bookmark”. Name it whatever you’d like, then paste the following string in the Location field:

javascript:void(T=prompt('Enter%20ticket%20#:%20'));open('https://webhelpdesk.middlebury.edu/helpdesk/WebObjects/Helpdesk.woa/wa/TicketActions/view?ticket='+T,'_self');

Caveat: Due to browser security this won’t work in a new/blank tab; it’ll only work on a tab/window where there’s currently content being displayed.

Tested in Firefox and Chrome.
