[Vtigercrm-developers] questions about support tickets ?

I have worked with systems at hosting companies in the past ( I have worked
for a few over the years), and the best way to attack the problem your
trying to solve that I have seen was to have asset based ticketing so that
if an asset has a modification or problem, its quickly seen on all customer
accounts that also use that asset.

 Unfortunately, vtiger does not support true assets to customer
relationships or asset based ticketing although several community members
have asked about it for over 2 years (or maybe longer .. I don't know).

This functionality is in the major commercial ticketing products out there
as I have used many including remedy and Siebel which handle it nicely.

I work in an it company and our main business is hosting and vpn support 
.. for example "I made changes to our mail server and would like to 
attach the ticket to all the accounts / contacts / users it will impact, 
so that if there is an issue and I'm not available someone else will be 
able to pickup the ticket and run with it. No matter who brings up the 
Hope that makes sense ..
