If it is not found in the dashboard, you can search for the module in the Odoo AppStore and install it in your database. The Helpdesk module includes Overview, Tickets, Reporting, and Configuration menus. Let’s take a look at each of these menus in detail.

Overview

As the name indicates, the Overview menu in the Helpdesk module will give a brief overview of almost all operations in the module. The user can manage assigned tickets and helpdesk teams on this platform. As you can see in the image below, the dashboard displays the number of open and closed tickets along with the details of average open hours and the number of SLAs that failed.

The My Performance tab will show the total number of closed tickets, customer rating, and success rate. The Daily Target of the user can be also viewed in this window. The user can easily access the helpdesk team from the dashboard itself. The assigned tickets and helpdesk team can be easily managed and monitored with the help of this Overview dashboard. Using the Tickets button given in the tab of each helpdesk team, the user will get a detailed view of the tickets assigned for that particular team. If you want to adjust the configuration options available for a helpdesk team, the Settings option given in the three dots on the top right corner of the respective tab can be used. The Filters and Group By options will assist you in sorting and filtering processes.

Tickets

The customer support system in the Helpdesk module works based on the support tickets. When customers submit their support requests, Odoo automatically converts the requests into helpdesk tickets in the module. Later, the assigned helpdesk team will take necessary action on the tickets to solve the issues reported by your customers. The Tickets menu in the Helpdesk module shows all tickets and tickets assigned for the user of the system separately.
