You can configure various sites (branches) to a region in the ServiceDesk Plus - MSP application.  



    Note: The administrator has the privilege to Add/Edit/Delete a site across Accounts. The Account Admin can Add/Edit/Delete a site which belongs to his Account(s). The Site Admin can only View/Edit/Delete the sites to which he is associated from the Site List page.

    10. Enable any of the following related settings,

      • Refer Default Settings: On enabling refer default settings, the default settings are not copied to site and hence there is not separate site based configurations (excluding departments). Instead the configurations made under the default settings are referred to the site. Any modifications made under the default settings such as, adding a new holiday or group to the existing list will get applied to the sites with refer default settings enabled.  

        Say, for an organization with various sites having similar site specific configurations, enable refer default settings instead of copying the default configurations to every site. Any additional holiday or group added under default settings will automatically get applied to all the sites with this option enabled.    

      • Copy Default Settings:Copy default settings help you to maintain separate site specific configurations for every site, and if there is any slight modifications made under default settings then, the same gets pushed to the sites provided the previous states of default setting and site configuration is the same. Any minor changes made in the site based configurations of a site is exclusively for the particular site.

        Say, the escalation rules set in a SLA for one site is different from another site. In this case, enable copy default settings radio button and modify the changes in the escalation rules.  

      • Custom Settings: Custom default settings help you to organize, configure and maintain separate site specific configurations of a site. The default settings do not have any influence over the default settings.  

        Consider an organization with branches across the globe having different operational hours and holidays, and thus with different SLAs. In this case, site specific configurations needs to be configured separately for every site by enabling the radio button corresponding to the options in
