Creating a Service Request

Subscribe to updates

Creating a Service Request is similar to creating other activities in Handle (Creating a new Activity). Service Requests can be created from the main navigation bar, an account, or in other activities, such as an Opportunity.

The Service Request default form is shown below. It contains a number of standard fields and groups to link information with minimal data entry e.g. inventory or customer equipment records. If you have a Handle Platinum license this form can be customized. Contact CustomerTRAX to find out more.

It is important to note that every request has a “Status.” The status field indicates where it is at in the process. Many organizations choose to customize these options to match their terminology. Additionally it may be advantageous to lock down who has rights to move it from one step to the next.
