Use to: Identify high business impact areas Search knowledge base for common problems resolutions Identify what equipment, locations s are causing most problems Search for similar problems Analyse Top 10 areas taking up staff resource Identify problem trends improvements Define known errors Report on volume statistics Relate incidents changes Known Error Database Identifying known errors, FAQs, solutions or workarounds can be difficult time consuming. This generally works well if a request is correctly identified categorised. However in reality, users will simply report same symptom in different ways. Innovative functionality enables you to not only quickly find known errors, but also match against known as definitions, e.g. , MAIL, OUTLOOK, MS OUTLOOK, EXCHANGE or NOTES.
