What is Microsoft Dynamics 365 ticketing system

As the website of Microsoft Dynamics 365 suggests, it is a whole set of business applications designed to help you meet your customers’ needs. The multifunctional ticketing system of the platform can help you do the help desk-related work effectively, while the high functionality of Microsoft Dynamics 365 can assist you in delivering operational excellence during your normal workflow.

In simple words, Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a platform that is worth to be considered when choosing an appropriate help desk or ticketing system.

What data is eligible for Microsoft Dynamics 365 help desk migration

You can import the following list of records to Microsoft Dynamics 365:

  • Tickets (Note that a description of your Ticket will migrate to the first Comment)
  • Contacts (A Contact from your source platform can migrate exclusively to a Contact field in Microsoft Dynamics 365)
  • Organizations
  • Attachments
  • Public and Private Notes (“Created At” Dates of your Comments can migrate, but won’t be displayed in Microsoft Dynamics 365)
  • Inline Images
  • “Created At” Dates
  • Knowledge Base Articles (All your Knowledge Base Articles will migrate to Drafts in Microsoft Dynamics 365. Thus, not all of their Statuses will be displayed. Also, Categories and Folders of your Articles won’t migrate from your source platform)
  • Comment Authors
Note: Despite the fact that Agents (Staff) do not migrate in an automated way, our technical representatives can map their fields for you in a manual way.

Apart from the possibility to migrate the records that are mentioned above to Microsoft Dynamics 365, you can also order a customized data migration so that our data masterminds will adjust your data migration according to your personal needs. Simply contact us and tell us what personal wishes or specific requests you have.
