    Replying to the Contact

    Sending a response to the contact is required when a new request is received. Also, when a support rep is ready to close a request, the same can be notified to the contact so that if the contact has any concerns about the same, he/she can raise the issue. The support rep can then address the issue and close the request after the contact is completely satisfied.
