Two primary roles in Suptask

  • Requesters - Users who submit and request tickets 
  • Responders - Users who help respond and remediate tickets

The Requester role

Requesting users are invited in a channel where tickets can be submitted to request for help or solutions. The requesting user is the person who will be provided with the solution when the ticket is remediated. 

The Responder role

Responding users are answering and providing solutions on incoming tickets submitted by requested users. They often work within a responding team to cooperate finding solutions on tickets. Responding users are invited in to a responding channel. The responding channel is typically private to the team.
