Start of your shift

- Verify that the channels #helpdesk, #webpage-help, #staff-help are unmuted
- Join/activate the helpdesk voice channel
- Log into Airmeet and go to the Arena and join the Help Desk Table
- In the #helpdesk Discord channel put "@everyone [your name] @[your team] on-duty, anything I should know" or the like. Please keep it professional and to the point.
NOTE: see the list below for your @[your team]
- Prioritize the incoming request (see below)
- Whenever possible, first try to send the person a link to the related webpage/wiki/knowledge base/FAQ that has their answer. IF they say that they are looking at the page/FAQ and are still lost, please offer to walk them through it.
- Check our Norwescon 43 Help Wiki Page and FAQ for instructions, if applicable/relevant
- Check Airmeet's Knowledge Base, if applicable/relevant
- IF after a reasonble atempt you are not able to address their issue please escalate their request (see section below regarding escalating).
After completing next request please use the filters below to choose the next request/person to help. Priority order for incoming requests:
- #staff-help Discord channel
- #webpage-help Discord Channel
NOTE: please finish the one you are working on before moving on the next. Please also do not stress over the number that may or may not be in the cue. The overall goal is customer service first, helping get sessions started and then everything else.
