Set up a Help desk to support your Google Workspace users.
Set up support channels
Consider the following tools to create multiple ways for users to get help:
- An internal page to store all troubleshooting information
- Google Meet and Google Chat for video and chat support
- Google Groups for users and support staff to share tips and best practices
- Google Forms to create a place for users to submit support requests (on a website or in an email)
- Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
- A station for in-person help (clearly post your hours of operation)
Tip: Use an internal ticket system to keep track of requests, support volumes, and time to resolution.
