Change Template


    Change Template lets you custom create change templates for the most common and frequently requested changes. Each template can possess different fields, field values and workflow, thus customizing or pre-defining change forms so as to suit the changes that may arise in your organization.

    The change template enables the Change Requester to initiate a change quickly with all the necessary fields pre-filled, thereby increasing the productivity of your help desk team.
