At Coda, we manage IT supports primarily through Slack.
To do this, we have a simple integration set up through Zapier (although any integration platform with a connection to Coda should be able to do this). This page outlines how to set up Zapier to create Tickets in your IT Doc.
To set this up, you’ll need a Slack account, a Zapier account, and a doc that includes a a table with the necessary fields (e.g. the ticketing table in this doc).
