Configuring Self Service

Self Service enables users to create and resolve their own tickets, which in turn might lower the call volume to technicians. The users in Self Service can create a new ticket or view a list of tickets submitted by them. Additionally, they can browse available solutions and provide feedback about them.

The following video (10:50) presentation provides information about customizing Self Service.

    Looks like we need to add that to our documentation above. Here is a kbase article to help you out.

    How do you set default impact and urgency for incidents entered through self-service?

      Hi, Matt. Track-It! does not consider impact and urgency when defining priorities. However, you can use two custom lookup fields on the Ticket form for impact and urgency, and then create a business rule to calculate the priority based on the values in those fields. For more information, see Configuring values for a Help Desk lookup field and Configuring business rules.

      To request that impact and urgency be considered when defining priorities, you can submit this as an idea that other members can vote on. To submit an idea, click Ideas on the BMC Communities webpage for Track-It!:
