Organization-Internal Support CoordinatorsPermanent link for this heading

The support coordinator team is given access to all support requests in the corresponding context and can perform the same actions as the initiators of the support requests. The support coordinator team can thus assist in the support process in a supportive manner.

The support coordinator teams can be defined at the following levels: organization, app configuration, app room, or Teamroom. The corresponding team is selected based on the context in which the support request is created.

Note: A dashboard is available to help the support coordinator team manage support requests. In the "Research" area, the desired support requests can be determined. Activation of this functionality can be requested free of charge from Fabasoft Cloud Support (cloudsupport@fabasoft.com: new window). Subsequently, an organization administrator can authorize the appropriate members in the service desk configuration (accessible via the service desk operations dashboard).
