The Dashboard

The first screen that appears in front of the user when he or she creates an account is the dashboard. It gives a direct access to areas such as get started (support section), views, reporting, and admin panel. All these options are present on the left panel and can be accessed by a single click. The dashboard also allows you to add new items. This can be done by clicking on the “+Add” button on the top left corner.


Organizing Tickets

The views option present in the left panel of the tool can be helpful. These allow the user to manage their tickets. It gives a list of unsolved tickets, unassigned tickets, recently updated tickets, new tickets in the group, pending tickets, and much more. These can be managed by simply clicking on the options from the left panel. The window also shows you a list of unsolved tickets with details such as Subject, Requester, Requested, Type, and Priority.  


Responding to a Ticket

The view section displays a list of unresolved tickets that can be resolved easily. This can be done by simply clicking on the link which will open an option to send a public reply or an internal note. You can type the response in this section to the customer for engagement.
