Integration of Linked Ticket App with Zendesk

The Linked Ticket app enables us to create a child ticket from an existing one and links them together. This app is useful when you have to see two separate conversations on the same issue. It is also useful for users when they want to start a conversation differently on the same issue. It will also display both parent and child tickets on a single interface.
