Using service desk queues

Customer requests become issues that you can view and work on in queues. Jira Service Desk comes with default queues that your administrator can update to automatically triage issues for your team. As an agent, you can see how many issues are in each queue, and switch between queues to work on the right issues at the right time.

You can easily navigate to your service desk queues at any time by selecting Queues from your project sidebar.
