The Help Desk module basically works based on a ticket system. Customer's queries will be registered as tickets and the company can take required action on each ticket within a specified time. In Odoo, tickets can be registered in the Helpdesk module automatically with the help of various platforms. A customer can submit queries through Email, Live Chat, phone calls, and website forms. The Helpdesk module ensures direct conversion of recorded queries into tickets and assigns them to different helpdesk teams. It is also possible to register tickets directly in the Helpdesk module. With the help of SLA policies, Odoo helps the customer to get a response from the company on time. If the queries demand any kind of maintenance or repair request, you can directly create quotations from the ticket itself in this module.
