I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1) How viable would be to have also some our clients connect to spicework to place ticket-request?

Easy. This it the entire function of Spiceworks.

2) If ok to have clients connect, any security issue as to a client can have access to our system?

Yes. This is the entire function of Spiceworks.

Be sure to wrap your Spiceworks instance in an SSL cert, as having people login with cleartext passwords will allow their accounts to be easily hacked or their credentials scraped + then used against them on other sites (if they use common user/pass combos).

3) Can spicework used to assign task to a group of users?

This isn't really how Spiceworks is setup. Typically tickets are per person, rather than collection of people.

Open a ticket with Spiceworks dev to ask this question.

4) Finally, can we also include inventory of our tech in the help desk?

Not really Spiceworks type function.

Open a ticket with Spiceworks dev to ask this question, as they might have some way for you to accomplish this.
