If a ticket is linked to a Service Level Agreement, there are specific times (escalation times) when it should be assigned to a responsible person (= reaction time) and closed (= solution time).
The reaction time and the solution time are calculated automatically by the system according to priority and respective regional working times or holidays - this information is summarized in the service time profile. A service time profile defines service times, location, and time zone in which a service level is provided.
Before the escalation times are reached, the system automatically sends notification emails to the person who is responsible for the ticket or the members of the role (you can define this notification period yourself).
To Create a Service Time Profile
- Go to Matrix42 Software Asset and Service Management > Service Desk application.
- In the navigation area, click Configurations > Service time profiles.
- On the toolbar, click Add Service Time Profile.
- Enter detailed information about the service time profile.
- For each day, add the corresponding times to enable or disable them as working times.
- Click Done at the bottom to save and close.
