Introduction to Groups

Groups contain multiple users on whom Self-Help solutions can be run from admin dashboard. For example – Your organization has Self-Help offline and Self-Heal applications installed on end user machines. Few users have logged an incident to create PST file in Outlook.

Scenario 1 – Without Anakage Platform – Agents would call those users and help them to create PST files on phone, remote desktop connections or physical visits. Imagine time taken to service 10 users.

Scenario 2 – With Anakage Self-Help Platform – Agents would call users and ask them to use the solution from desktop application or portal. This would be efficient that Scenario 1.

Scenario 3 – With Anakage Self-Heal and Self-Help Platform – Agents would collect user name and host names of users who have created incident. He would create a group with these user names and Runs the solution from dashboard. Users whenever they are online would get notification on their desktop that they “With reference to their incident no XXXXX, please click here to fix their issue”.

Note – Solutions can be run from dashboard for individual users also. No need of always creating a group to run solutions.
