Configuring Self Service
Self Service allows clients to create and resolve their own incidents and service requests, thus lowering the call volume to staff members. Self Service users can also submit a new service request, or they can use common service requests to create service requests for common issues. Additionally, they can access a database of knowledge articles and provide feedback about them.
