The Return Repair Ticket process allows you to perform warranty or rework repairs for your customer. You will be able to create a new ticket for the customer to replace any services or parts used in the original repair, and waive charges for any items covered under your service warranty/guarantee.
This article addresses how to perform a Return Repair (rework) ticket with a deductible.

1. Setup the catalog item
1a. OPTIONAL: You may choose to create a new Item Type to associate with the Catalog Item, if you don't already have an Item Type that would suit this purpose.
1b. Create the catalog item for the deductible. Set the price to the amount you wish to charge for the deductible
