ODOO, formerly known as OpenERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), is a platform that companies can use to easily manage the basics of the company such as materials and warehouse management, human resources, finance, accounting, sales and many other enterprise features. Help Desk module is basically for providing customers support and address the typical issues and queries they have. The Odoo Help Desk Module generates tickets by emails, or from a website form or any third party applications. Odoo also provides these tickets to be assigned manually or randomly between the team members. The module also allows you to assign priority to tickets based on their urgency. In this blog we discuss the Odoo 13 helpdesk feature.

By default, Odoo Helpdesk comes with a team installed called “Support”.
Click on Ticket to create a new Ticket. One can also assign a ticket after creating a new team.
Once tickets have been created , your employees can start working on them. If you have selected a manual assignation method then your employees will need to assign themselves to tickets using the “Assign To Me” button on the top left of a ticket or by adding themselves to the “Assigned to” field.
