Service requests have an elaborate workflow: they can move through several phases each of which may have several statuses. On the left side of each service request there is a section that shows its current phase and status. The letter in the round icon on the top of the section shows the service request phase, while the color of the icon, as well as the color of the section background shows the service request status which name is displayed at the bottom. So what do service request phases and statuses mean?

To accept or reject a service request

  • Point to the appropriate service request, and click the green icon with a check mark to accept it or click the red icon with a cross mark to reject it.

If you accept service request, it automatically moves to the next phase and status depending on the phases settings of the given service request type (for example, to the Estimating phase with the On Hold status).
