Stop the clock

Is there a way that cireson can create a stop the clock management pack? Case Dimensions have created a SCSM console app that can stop the clock.

    Could you please explain more what you are looking for. Are you talking about when a ticket is being worked on or as far as SLO go?

    Yep, I was refering to pausing the SLO. An example of a scenario can be when we have to escalate to a third party and hence we need to stop the clock/pause SLO.

    We have the same requirement, but not for when assigning to vendors, but when we are waiting on users.
    can I suggest that your SLO build in the time that it takes a vendor to resolve the job.. 
    e.g try and match up YouR vendor SLAs to your Custer SLAs (while building in a little fat) this is the ITIL approach anyways.

    ON A side note, I can see how this feature would be useful for waiting on users..

    totally agree, if users are not available, I would also like to stop the clock as it is not fair on ICT SLOs breaching when its the customer that is not available.

    I was told this was on Cireson's map 2 years ago and not heard anything since. We too would like the ability to pause SLAs on certain criteria e.g. Incident moves to "pending" state. We are currently achieving this using a crude workaround.

    More information can be found here: http://blog.scsmsolutions.com/2013/02/sla-in-scsm-2012-part-3-hidden-features/

    That shows a way of doing it, but as the article mentions this is not supported by Microsoft. We've looked at implementing this, but have had a lot of pushback. It's possible we will still integrate something in the future, but we've put this on hold for now.

    Any chance that this is on the table again for consideration?

    We've been successful using this for Incidents for many years. Now Leadership wants to implement the same thing for Service Requests. Think this should be easily adaptable?
