    Article Summary

    This tab shows you a list of operating times for your service desk. Operating times are the hours that your service desk is in operation. Due dates, escalation rules, and automatic emails are all affected by your operating times.

    Example: A service record that receives an automatic due time of 6 hours is submitted at 16:00. Your service desk is open from 8:00 - 18:00. Therefore, the due date of the service record is 12:00 the next day -- six operating hours after it was submitted.

    List of different operating times

    There are three types of operating times that can apply to a service record:

    Default operating times

    There is only one set of default operating times. These operating times apply to all service records that are not associated with any other set of operating times.

    Agreement operating times

    These operating times apply to all service records attached to a certain SLA (SLA/SLM module only).

    Company operating times

    These operating times apply to all service records originating from within a specific company.
