Raising requests on behalf of customers

Let's say you're helping a customer resolve an issue over the phone, and you need to follow up with additional information. You can use the customer portal to quickly enter your customer's name, fill in the issue details, and submit the service desk request. 

If you don't need to create a request, but simply want to invite customers to your service desk so they know how to get help, you can skip ahead to Invite a new customer.

On this page:

Raise a customer request

  1. From your service desk project sidebar, select Raise a request
  2. Select the request type that matches your customer's need. 
  3. In the Raise this request on behalf of field, enter a new customer's email address, or search for an existing customer: 
     Raise this request on behalf of field, with the user Alana Grant selected.
  4. Fill in the request details. If the customer is in an organization, you can choose to share the request with that organization.
  5. Select Create. Your customer is emailed a link to the new request. New customers also receive an invitation to finish creating a service desk account.

Invite a new customer

  1. From your service desk project sidebar, select Customers.
  2. Select Add customers and enter your customer's email address. 
  3. If they belong to an organization, select it from the Add to organization dropdown.
  4. Select Add, and you're done!
