4 1st level support refers to the initial level of Customer assistance provided. 1st level support is the necessary first step for efficiently handling of user inquiries and ensuring that straightforward issues are resolved promptly. It acts as a frontline support team to address common problems and help users navigate the software effectively. More complex or technical issues may be escalated to the 2nd level of support for specialized expertise and resolution. The responsibilities of 1st level support include:

  1. Help Desk Ticket Creation: Assessing and categorizing incoming requests to determine the nature and severity of the issue. Logging and documenting issues in a ticketing system for further analysis or escalation if necessary.
  2. User Assistance: Directing users to relevant documentation or knowledge base articles that may help them resolve their issues independently. Providing assistance to users with common problems, frequently asked questions, and basic troubleshooting steps.
  3. Communication: Keeping users informed about the status of their requests and providing updates on known issues or resolutions.
  4. Escalation: If the issue cannot be resolved at the 1st level, escalating the problem to higher levels of support, such as 2nd level support (development team).
