In HelpDesk, teams are groups of agents. Teams are useful when you have different customer-facing departments in your company (e.g. Sales, Support, etc.).
An agent needs to be assigned to at least one team.
How to create teams
- Open the Agents tab.
- Go to Teams, and click +Add in the upper right corner.
- Choose Create a team.
- Enter you team’s name, and add agents. Click Save changes.
We’ve also covered it in a quick video:
If you want to edit a team, choose the team from the list, and click the edit icon.
- edit the Team’s Name
- add new Agents
- set the Team as Default Team
- delete the Team
What is a Default Team
Every message from a customer is automatically assigned to the Default Team. Then, you can choose the Team that should take care of the ticket.
When you create a HelpDesk account, your Default Team is called Support Heroes. You can change its name or set another Team as default at any time.
