My organization currently has several teams, each with their own service desk intake. I would like to create a "wrapper" on top of the individual teams to serve as a single starting point for any internal customer/team.
The goal is to start out at this top layer, customer answers some questions, based on questions, they are routed automatically to the downstream team and their existing service desk. At that point, the customer would answer the set of questions for that team's intake.
Is this possible? If so, can someone please share the documentation? I've not had any luck so far.
Hi @Kristen Mann and welcome to the community!
This is possible, but there will be a few "devil in the details" you'd need to sort out. Here's how I'd approach it at a high level:
based on questions, they are routed automatically to the downstream team and their existing service desk
Customers would create a request on the intake project, but I would have customer notifications turned off as this step only serves as a temporary placeholder. Based upon the details captured in that request, you could leverage automation to auto-generate the actual request in the appropriate project, copy relevant data, and close out the intake request. The customer would only see the automatically generated request.
At that point, the customer would answer the set of questions for that team's intake.
Since you're on server, you'll want the Proforma marketplace app. You could again leverage automation so that when the issue is first created from the intake project, it attaches a form and prompts the customer to provide extra information.
Some of those "devlish details":
So, yes... It's possible, but it may not be practical depending upon your solution needs.
Hi @Mark Segall and thank you for the warm welcome!
I greatly appreciate the thoughtful and detailed response above. It has given me a lot to think about and if the original idea is something we should stick with or if we take an alternate route.
Have a great day!
