How to open a new fault notice and how to manage service requests
Creating a new service request
You can create a new service request in the Admin Portal either
- From the dashboard "Create new .." -> Create new service request (upper left corner)
- Manage Tasks -> Service Requests -> "+ New Service Request" (upper right corner)
- Directly from the Spot -> Service Requests -tab -> "New Service Request"
First, select the type of service request you are about to submit. Selecting the service request type determines in which queue the new notification will be opened (admin specifies in the service request settings). The title of the service request must be written. The priority is urgent by default, but can be changed. If other mandatory fields have been created on the form by the administrator, they must also be filled in.
|Service Request type||Service Request Type Specifies the type of service request and its settings|
|Title||Specifies the title of the service request that appears on the front page of the job queue: "What is the service request for?"|
|Priority||Priority specifies the urgency class of the service request (high, medium, low)|
|Description||A more detailed description of the service request (eg a more detailed description of the fault with a fault message)|
|Additional fields||If necessary, additional information related to the service request (can be customized by the administrator for each form)|
|Status||Specifies the status of the service request. The default mode is "Open" unless a responsibility role is specified. It is "Open" for as long as no responsibility role has been assigned to the service request. When either defined in the service request settings or configured by the work management, the service request changes to "In Progress". "Completed" when acknowledged as completed and completion comments are recorded in "Comment"-tab|
|Responsible Workers||Specifies the mobile role in whose queue the service request should appear and who should be able to process the service request.|
|Completion comments||Appears on the service request on both the mobile and the management portal for anyone who has the right to view the service request|
|Private comments||Appear only on the Admin Portal to those who have permission to view the service request|
|Files||Files (images, videos, etc) can be attached to a service request|
|Forward||Service Request can be forwarded from one queue to another|
We recommend opening service requests from within the system if possible. This allows the service request to be linked directly to the spot in question and the service history to be directed to the correct device.
If the service request is opened from a public form, someone must link the possible device and the service request with Spot within the system.
Processing a service request
The service request can be opened either directly from the spot, from the service request tab or from the kanban of the service requests or from the table view by clicking on the title of the service request.
The status, priority, or responsibility workers of an individual service request can be modified in the management portal.
A task can be created for a service request. Open the service request and go to the Tasks tab. "Create a new task". Note that the task associated with the service request must be acknowledged before the service request itself can be acknowledged.
Deleting of service request
Only admin * (technical administrator) can delete service requests from the system. However, the manager user can modify the status of the service request and set the status of the service request to "Canceled".
