Launch Preparation

Before your online helpdesk will operate efficiently and look smart, you will need to consider the following aspects that need to be setup.

  • Customisation and Branding - To make your helpdesk look like your helpdesk
  • Triggers - to enable the mail notifications that tell your clients and agents about changes on support requests. These fire only on a ticket update of some sort.
  • Automations - for time or value based automations, commonly used for ticket elevation, time based changes
  • Macros - these will be one of the most effective parts of your helpdesk, pre-written and formatted solutions to common issues, recurring comments etc.
  • Agent Setup - Automatic signatures, permissions (Managers etc)
  • Groups - The different departments or support networks in your business
  • Workflow - How will your support process work?  Which support portals will you focus on?
  • Knowledge Base - Who is responsible for generating Knowledge Base content?
This is not a complete list of what is needed for setting up your online helpdesk, but gives a basic outline to get you started.
