What do you mean by decision tree for a help desk?  Can you give me an example of what you're looking for?

The one I have developed roughly so far would indicate:
1 is issue new or existing?  iow have others reported it as well?  If yes this routes the help desk technician (hdt)  to a specific set of procedures, if No then ask question 2:-
2 is the issue hardware or software?  Answer would lead hdt to a set of further questions for each?
3 If Hardware - is the issue with laptop, desktop, blackberry etc?  If Sofware - is the issue with GP, Office, email, etc?
4.  If Outlook then....
If Word then ....
If Excel then ....

Thats the sort of thing I am looking for.

Got it. This would be hard to get something that fits into your model since each orginization is a bit different from each other.
