BMS enables users to set up separate workflows, and notifications for tickets that are created during specific hours. When a customer emails your support during non-business hours, can specify the ticket flow using the Time Sensitive option in workflows.
This feature allows you to send your customers specific notifications and assign specific SLAs based on the time of ticket creation.
