Helpdesk Workflows

Helpdesk Workflows

By configuring the helpdesk workflows you can specify what tasks will be available to helpdesk operators on the Helpdesk site, and configure options for each available task. You can also create custom activities and custom workflows. For more information, see Custom Workflows and Custom Activities.

The following helpdesk built-in workflows are available:

  • Verify User Identity
  • Assign Passcode
  • Reset Password
  • Unlock Account
  • Unlock Q&A Profile
