Requesting a Status on a Case
STEP 1: To Request Status on an existing Helpdesk case, from the Helpdesk Resource page, you will see the “Request Case Status” field. It will be populated with one of the following statuses:
• Status Requested – This button is displayed when a user has already requested status for a particular case, but status has not been given. The button has no action associated and will be disabled.
• View Status – This button is displayed when status has been provided for a particular case. If the status is Add Note or Escalate Case, the text of the status can be viewed quickly by selecting this button.
• Request Status – This button displays for all cases that are assigned to end-users and reside in a user’s My Cases queue. When this button is selected, a status request will be initiated; a confirmation message will appear.
• Not Applicable – This button will appear when a case is unassigned. No action is associated with this button and it will remain disabled.
To receive a status update, select the “Request Status” button.
A pop up will appear asking you to confirm you would like to request status for this case. Select “OK”.
STEP 2: When your request has been processed, you can select the “View Status” to see the details related to your case.
