​Used for instant support, this module does not require installation or administrator rights. ​

The Quick Support module will streamline processes for IT Support staff and create efficiency and increased response time to clients.

With Quick Support, Administrators can manage service requests more efficiently by having the ability to assign open service requests to specific support staff.

You will have the option to asssign the open service case to another support member or to a different group.
