Can Dynamics 365 Work as a Ticket Management System?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Service offers help desk ticketing capabilities like support for complex branching processes, configurable queues, email automation, rule-based ticket routing, ticket reassigning and escalation. And, despite its name, this Dynamics 365 product can work well not only as a customer support ticketing system, but also as a help desk app for employees.

The ticketing capabilities of Dynamics 365 are regularly updated within release waves. In 2022-2023, the newest features such as percentage-based routing, preferred agent routing, longest idle routing, and AI-powered conversation summary will further streamline ticket management processes.
