[Servicedesk] Working with external owners

We are working with Kace for several years now, particularly to catch tickets. We have numerous applications running which are managed by us locally but a lot of them also by external companies that we work closely with.

If i have a ticket that needs to be checked by a external party i simply change the status to "Assigned to 3rd party" in the ticket and keep the ownership of the ticket by myself. E-mail conversations are then done outside of the KBOX since the external party is not allowed to access our KBOX. This is time consuming and not efficient.

I am just wondering how you do this in your environments, if there are some more easy best practices it would make my job also easier.

Thanks and kind regards,

We only have one queue that an external user needs to access, and that is for our printer support company. We created a user in our directory for them (printersupport@college.edu) and they login to KACE with that user account. The user only has access to the printer support queue.
