Things to remember:

  • We have set up 3 contacts in the Admin Console which you can find under:Admin Console --> Search --> Contacts
  • The 3 demo contacts are: Al Alt, Bill Mott and Bob Ford which you can impersonate by clicking on this demo icon
  • The demo instance is not connected to your PSA, it has its limitations - like you will not receive any email notifications and can't set up 'PSA side of things'
  • All data is immediately deleted after your trial of 7 days

Want to create your own Approval system? 

You can create your own approval request using your demo instance. 

Giving a user Approval Permissions

The next step is to select an approver for the company you want to enable approvals for. You can do this by selecting the user under the Contacts tab, and giving them the "Approvals" under the permission tab.

Setting up an Approval Request Type

In order to create a request type that needs approval, you just need to make a request type as usual in your Admin Console. The only difference between an approval ticket and a normal request type is that the approval ticket will have the status the ticket should come in under as "Approval Required" or whichever status you have set to be equivalent to this. 

DeskDirector Portal and Tech are two big pillars of customer service. You will be able to access all of the above with your demo instances. To know more about how DeskDirector fits your MSP business book a call
