Submitting tickets

Users submit a ticket either by sending a mail directly to the helpdesk mail address, or through the helpdesk form.

Responding to ticket

When a ticket is submitted to helpdesk, the following series of steps happens:

  • When the ticket is submitted, the user is automatically informed of its creation by the system.
  • The ticket is routed into the appropriate queue by the first line of support.
    • The first line of support also sets the ticket state to open.
    • The first line of support sends the acknowledgement of the ticket to the user who submitted it, and sets the ticket state to open (using the web interface). E.g.
      Dear <NAME_OF_THE_USER>,
      Thank you for contacting us.
      Your message has been received and someone from the support team
      will get back to you shortly.
