Respond More Effectively To Service Requests


Help Desk Plus is simple, customizable, Sharepoint hosted help desk software, that ensures your organization can handle every issue properly. Combined with a custom forms designer, you can design forms for specific help requests (e.g. IT, HR, Finance).

Help Desk Plus Workflow

Help Desk Plus workflow contains five states: Opened, In Progress, Resolved, Reopened and Closed.
The below diagram shows Help Desk workflow in graph form.
Rounded rectangles represent states and arrows represent actions that can be performed in each state.

Workflow States Definitions

  • Opened - The request has been submitted by the user and awaits Technician action
  • In Progress - Technician (Assignee) actively working to resolve request
  • Resolved - Request has been resolved by Technician and awaits Requester action (Close or Re-open)
  • Closed - The request is considered as finished, the resolution is correct (can be reopened anytime)
  • Reopened - The request was resolved, but the resolution is incorrect.


When you enable integration module, requests are automatically exported to native SharePoint list, enabling to leverage the full potential of SharePoint. Sharepoint list can be integrated with many systems by using Power Automate (previously MS Flow), used as data source for Power BI (reporting services) or displayed on different site via Web Part.

1. Assign user roles: Technician and Administrator (section Administration->User Roles ). There is no need to assign regular User role, because this role is given by default -every user with access to the Sharepoint parent site (where the app is installed) also has access to this app as regular user.
2. Create or edit request categories (section Administration->Request Categories)
3. Create or edit request templates (section Administration->Request Templates)

Notices for group notification:

  • How can I extend my trial period?

    We cannot extend trial period remotely, because app is SharePoint-hosted and our company doesn't have access to the customer's SharePoint env., however you can uninstall an app and install it again to "reset" 14-day period. (this operation removes all app data and configuration).
