  4. Enter the category name in the Title column.
  5. Select the name of the employee responsible for requests in this category from the drop-down list in the Responsible column. You can assign more than one responsible person if necessary. These person(s) will be assigned to be responsible for all new HelpDesk requests in this category by default. This can be changed when a request is being processed. If you do not assign a default responsible person, new HelpDesk requests in this category will be created without a responsible employee by default.

Another way of editing a request category is to either click on the category name or select Edit Item from the list item menu or on the Items tab.
This will open the HR HelpDesk category details form in the edit view where you can make all the necessary modifications. To create a new category, you can click New Item on the Items tab.
