With the Service Queue, you can organize spontaneous customer support on the team. Support requests are collected in the service queue and depicted using a service case. Each service case represents the inquiry of a customer who needs help. After they are created, individual service cases can be worked on individually by colleagues from your team.
The service queue is part of the TeamViewer (Classic) Management Console. To access the Management Console, go to https://login.teamviewer.com and log in with your TeamViewer account. Next, click on the Service queue in the sidebar.
This article applies to all TeamViewer (Classic) customers with a Premium, Corporate or Tensor license.
What is a service case?
The service case represents a customer’s support request. New service cases are created each time a customer needs help via TeamViewer (Classic). A service case can be compared with a ticket in a ticket system and is represented by a unique session code.
How to create a service case
If a customer needs help, a service case can be created in several ways.
- You can create a service case manually.
- Your customers can open your custom QuickSupport module, which automatically creates a service case.
- Your customers can click the SOS button on their desktops.
The most convenient way to leverage service cases is via creating a custom TeamViewer QuickSupport module that will be linked from your customer’s desktop once it is first launched. If your customer clicks on the shortcut on their desktop (call SOS button), a new service case will automatically be created.
- To create a custom QuickSupport module with an SOS button, go to https://login.teamviewer.com ➜ Design & Deploy Custom modules ➜ Add QuickSupport.
How to manage a service case
All service cases are collected within the service queue, which can be seen as the ticket system for service cases.
To get a service case solved, you can assign them to users of your company profile. Additionally, you can directly connect to your customer without entering a TeamViewer ID and password by using the service code linked to each service case. Therefore, a created service case also appears in your Computers & Contacts list.

How to check the status of a service case
A service case can have the following statuses:
- New: A service case was created. Neither the assignee nor the customer has connected to the session.
- Pending: One of the connection partners has connected to the session.
- In progress: Both connection partners have connected to a remote session. This is the case if the assignee starts the session and the customer connects to it or if the customer starts the connection and the assignee requests a remote session.
- Closed: The session was closed by the assignee or the case creator (see above).
- Expired: The case was not closed within 24 hours.
