From here, meeting times can be selected and reviewed, and a request for a meeting sent to the requestor.
Once sent, requestors can review selected times on tickets as well as emails, accept one of the times suggested, or decline the times if they do not fit their current schedule.

Once expanded, you can click on the Request a Support Session to begin selecting times you wish to meet with the requestor.
This will open the Scheduled Support Request pop-up window. Towards the top of the window, you can begin by selecting an estimated duration for the meeting if needed. Additionally, you can open your personal calendar directly from this pop up window to review available timeslots using the View Personal Calendar button as well.
Next, you can choose meeting times directly on the calendar within the window. Once selected, all meeting times will appear on the right side of the window.
Finally, at the bottom of the page you can specify the specific location the meeting should occur as well as any necessary additional notes. Once complete, click on Send Request.
Once sent, the requestor will see the suggested times displayed on the left side of the ticket. From here, the requestor can select from one of the specified times, or decline the request entirely if none of the times match their current schedule.
Once a meeting time has been accepted or declined, the agent will get an update letting them know which time, if any, was selected.
Please note, one a meeting has been selected both the agent and admin can request a new meeting time, or cancel the meeting request entirely, if needed at any time.
