Work Packages are tickets that have been grouped together by your specified selection. For example, you could create a work package to group tickets together for large projects such as computer lab refreshes. 

Creating a New Work Package

To create a new work package go to any ticket view on the left navigation bar. Next, you can directly check the boxes of individual tickets or use a filter to generate a list with common criteria such as model type. After selecting the desired tickets, click Other at the top of the menu and select Add to Work Package.

This will open up a new pop-up window. From there, you can add the list to a preexisting work package or create a new work package. Once you have selected an existing work package or created a new one, click Update to complete the process.

Accessing / Deleting a Work Package

To view and alter your existing work packages, begin by clicking on Ticket > Work Packages on the left navigation bar.

From here, you can delete work packages at any time in the Work Packages menu by clicking the delete button on the far left of each group. This will not delete the tickets themselves, just the package group.
