Escalation Rules

 

This page shows you a list of all escalation rules that exist for your Service Desk. Escalation rules allow you to automatically perform actions on service records when predefined criteria are met.

 

The screenshot below shows two examples of escalation rules: the first reopens service records that have been put in a follow up status when the follow up date arrives, and the second notifies an administrator and his/her manager when a service record passes the due date.

 

 

SysAid runs your escalation rules every five minutes during the operating times of the company to which the SR belongs. The escalation rules are run one by one, from top to bottom as they appear in this list. In order to change the order in which they're run, you can reorder the escalation rules using the up/down arrow buttons found at the far right of each row.
