    • Machine Translation Success
    • Human Translation Requested
    • Human Translation Returned
    • An Error Occurred with Language I/O
  • Ticket Field ID for Status Dropdown: Some customers prefer to use a dropdown to store the status described above

Add optional fields used for Language I/O Status, Machine count, and Human count. Status is a text field, and the other 2 are numeric. These fields may be added in Settings -> Manage -> Ticket Fields. Then take the "Field Id" for each added field for use in the settings in the next step. Permissions for each field should be "Agent only".
