Notifications, Escalations & Alarms

Notifications for your End-users, your Technicians, Primary Technicians, Account Managers, Project Leaders, as well as Escalations, alarms and Event Handling are real-time aspects of NetHelpDesk.

We understand that you won't live in our product, and will need to interact with it when not logged in. Our Notifications, Escalations and Alarms functionality will help you and your team work more effectively and efficiently, whilst giving you maximum data very quickly.

You choose the ticket data you want to go out with the notification, based on $variable strings.

Here is an example of the Technician Notification E-mail Template, populated with $variable strings to populate information many of our customer find useful:

When a significant event, such as when a new request is created, or a call approaches being overdue, or when a call is re-assigned, NetHelpDesk can optionally inform anyone you define. This can be just the technician dealing with the request, or his section or every technician:

Listed below are some of the notifications, escalations and alarms in NHD as standard.

You can be notified about tickets that are:

  Assigned to You, or  
  Assigned to your Section (Team), or  
  Assigned to All  

...and be notified about the following things:

  New Requests as they are created.  
  Actions Added to calls as they happen.  
  Reassigned from one login to another.  
  SLA 1st Level Warning (percentage of time reached)  
  SLA 2nd Level Warning (percentage of time reached)  
  New Requests (Priority 1) for important calls.  
  New Request (Out of Hours)  
  Time Taken Beyond Estimate of time when call created.  
  Software Usage Alarm  
  Re-order Level Alarm  
  Contract Expiry Alarm  

When there is a change of service status escalation events are generated, based on the criteria you determine, and sets the call with the defaults you use. .

The range of methods for notification include:

  Pop-Up Window  
  Windows Tray Icon  
  Web Message via Portal  
  SMS (Text Message)  

A 'tool tray' icon program that sits in your tool tray waiting for escalation messages is available with NHD as standard. Escalation messages are queued until received by the technician they are destined for.

Escalation messages are generated by a separate program that runs on a server.

Our product has developed over many years based on Customer feedback, so if there is another way you feel would help you in this area, feel free to speak with us about your ideas. We can usually add in new features quickly, and usually free of charge.

Just contact our team to discuss your requirements. If there are any features you would like to see added to our help desk software, just let us know. See our #ChallengeNHD Twitter campaign for more information.
