A new ticket is always assigned to a role, not to a specific person. With this action, a role member says that they take over this ticket, which means that they accept responsibility for the ticket. The ticket status is set to In Progress. This informs other members of this role that somebody is already working on this ticket.
If you select only one ticket on a search page and click Edit, the selected ticket will be opened directly for further handling, after the status is set to In Progress.
