This article describes the steps to auto set “Category” of Tickets created via email based on one of the following criteria

Auto assignment is happen based on the category and issue type selection in Ticket during the Ticket creation/update.

Go to Application Administration –> Categorization –> Edit Issue Type item and specify users in “Assigned Staff” field. Whenever a Ticket is created with that particular Issue Type then corresponding staff will be automatically get assigned for that Ticket.
Round Robin Assignment:
When we check “Enable Round Robin Assignment” for Issue Type, the Tickets which are created with particular Issue Type having multiple assigned staff then the Ticket gets assigned to each person in the Assigned Staff field in a circular order.
Note: Assignment doesn’t change even if we altered Category and Issue Type for an existing Ticket.
