How do Insert records in TableB based on a Batch insert of Records from TableA on a Trigger?

I'm somewhat new to the use of Triggers in MS SQL. My initial creation only gives me 1 new record in the second table(SMI_STATUS) , regardless of the number of records inserted into
the firts table that fires the trigger (TicketPoolHist).

I've looked at several examples on the web, realizing that I need to do a "set" approach, but I can't seem to put it together. Any suggestions?

Currrent Trigger , which only works on the last record in the Inserted table is shown below.
CREATE TRIGGER [STLog1] ON [dbo].[TicketPoolHist] 
AFTER INSERT,UPDATE 
AS
 
declare @Datestamp as datetime,
@TableName as Char(20),
@TableUID as Integer,
@Status as Char(1)
 
Select
@TableUID = Identity_Column
 
From Inserted
 
INSERT INTO smi_Status(DateStamp,TABLENAME,TABLEUID,STATUS) VALUES (Current_TimeStamp,'TicketPoolHist',@TableUID,1)
