Outlook Foms in Remedy

Posted on 2006-05-03

I have a "template" that was given to me to allow a user to fill out and submit to our Remedy system. This is what I've been given without any other information. Stuff is definately missing.

Has anyone set up a form in outlook to be filled out and submitted to an AR Remedy system? Thanks!

    Hi Ponthecomputer,

    I don't know what this is, but it doesn't look like any Outlook form I've ever seen.

    first time I've ever heard of Remedy being used this way <grin>.

    I am more accustom to Remedy using the email system as a vehicle to notify the customer about the status of an issue.  If the above is suppose to be an example of an input form; I would think that this is mis-represented.    The form looks more like the skeleton of something else.  Only thing; if its not an issue, would be to send the form back with some sort of question like, "how do I describe the problem?"
    Besides with any helpdesk program; you need helpdesk people to take and triage the problem, which to me means you are not creating and routing a ticket, especially something as vague as this.

    I'm new to Remedy and found that your comments back up what I discovered. There is a form built into remedy available to users online ad that's what they should use if they want users to initiate their own tickets which is not a great idea. I think that there was some sort of hope that they could take some sort of remedy template and use it as an outlook form. Anyway, thanks again. -Paresh
