Agents can communicate with customer users via email, phone or SMS, and agents can communicate with other agents via notes. Additionally, it is possible to start processes, which can affect both agents and customer users.
The communication for all of these is managed by using tickets. This means, **OTRS** will convert any type of communications into tickets, and it will add the related messages as articles to the ticket.
Create Ticket
Use this screen to add a new ticket to the system. The ticket create screen is available from the main menu and from the action menu, as well as from the customer and customer user cards.
When agents start the communication, they can create *email tickets*, *phone tickets*, *process tickets* or *SMS tickets*. All communications result in a ticket, and the first message is added to the ticket as an article.
Email Ticket
Email ticket is used to send an email to the customer user or to other recipients when the ticket is created.
Phone Ticket
