Learn how to succeed in your role as a service desk agent.
What are queues?
Customer requests are organized into queues. Queues let you quickly view, triage and assign requests as they come in. They also provide high level information on an issue; usually a summary, status and customer name. Queues are normally sorted by a Service Level Agreement or goal for your team's service interactions. A clock on the issue indicates the time until your team's next target is due.
You can use the preconfigured queues in your service desk or you can create your own custom queues. Custom queues allow you to choose the name for the queue, determine what requests are filtered into the queue, and what columns appear in the queue. For example, you may have a time to first response goal. Your queue prioritizes requests to the top of your list that are closest to expiring on that goal. This way you can focus on the most important requests first.
You can create up to 50 queues per project. If you run out, see if you can combine queues, or remove ones you don't use anymore.
