Canned Actions has two functions:
Auto-fills a predefined response with dynamic placeholders (Merge Fields).
Performs changes to ticket properties such as status, priority, assignee etc.
Note: Both the functions mentioned above are optional towards defining a Canned Action. For example, Canned Actions can be customized to do ticket property changes without inserting any message.
Go to Automate >> Canned Actions.
