Using Odoo to setup a help desk

In this video we show you two different methods to setup a help desk within Odoo. The first method uses the basic 'HelpDesk' module which extends the CRM application. This basic help desk ticket system provides you an easy way to track issues by partners (customers, suppliers, employees, etc), manage their priority, set who is responsible for resolution and have visibility of the overall status of the issue.

Odoo's Issue Tracking and integration with projects

The second help desk ticket option we cover takes a different approach. instead of integrating with the CRM system, the Issues and Tracking module ties in with the Project Manager. This allows you to assign help tickets to projects and assign tasks to track completion.

The real value of this help desk is in the integration with Odoo

The built in Odoo help desk applications are easy to use, straight forward, and very simple. There are certainly dedicated help desk software applications with far more features. The beauty however of Odoo's help desk integration is consolidation of your information.
