Requests

On this page you can see requests in ALVAO Service Desk. It is the default page for members of service resolution teams.

Options:

  • Command Panel - The panel displays commands for working with requests, depending on the status and number of requests selected. These commands can also be found in the local menu under the right mouse button. 
    • New request - create a new request, usually based on a call from the requester.
    • Reply to Requester - send a message to the Requester of the request. To maintain a single conversation thread with the requester, the message is sent in response to the last message from or to the requester (i.e., the requester is one of the recipients of the message sent or received) within the selected request.
    • Note - write a new note in the log of the selected request. You can select other event types from the drop-down menu of this command:
      • Phone Call - record the contents of a phone call with a requester, supplier, colleague, etc.

      • Other - minutes of other means of communication.

    • Assign - assign the selected requests to a specific solver or to the entire solver group.
    • Assign to me - quickly accept selected requests for solution. The command has the same effect as selecting yourself in the Assign.

    Note:
    Additional commands defined by the system administrator can be displayed in the command bar, see custom commands.
