Support services are a way to give people easy access to help desks and other key contacts in your office. Most commonly you'll use support services to enable issue reporting within Robin's apps.
Support services are available for organizations starting at the Pro plan.
Adding service addresses
Administrators can manage available support services via Settings > Support. You will see a list of active support addresses. We recommend making these map to your existing internal help desks for things like Facilities, Tech Support, and Catering.
If your help desk requires a whitelist, make sure to allow incoming messages from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Services listed here will be available options to anyone reporting an issue within the web dashboard, or assigned to handle room display reports. Don't worry about assigning them to specific locations yet, this is just the organization-wide pool.
You can add a new support service via Add Address. Keep in mind you may need to refresh your page after adding new accounts before they start to appear throughout the web dashboard.
Assign support services for each location
Once you have a support service, you can assign it to be the primary point of contact for all issues in a location. When set, the services will receive issues reported from the room display and other apps.
You can assign a default service for each of your office locations via Settings > Issue Reporting. If one address handles multiple locations, you can assign the same service as many times as you'd like.
Pick the service from the dropdown, and then it will save automatically.

The selected group will then receive an email like this:
