Managing Request and Request Categories

Incident IQ comes with a number of default request categories and requests for Human Resources. On the left side bar click Administration and Requests. 

These may not fit your particular district's needs. You can control what requests are active or inactive in your system by checking or unchecking the box to the left of each request. 

  • Checked box indicates active. 
  • Unchecked box indicated inactive.

To deactivate the entire request category, uncheck all the requests under that request category. Users will no longer see this option available for ticket submission. 


Also, you can add requests to any request category. Locate the search bar below each request category section. Search for the desired request from a defaulted list.
