- To ensure prompt access to the phone helpdesk, the primary support plan holder must provide and maintain a list of up to 5 named users who can have access to the phone helpdesk.
- Users who call the helpdesk who are not on the list of 5 named users may be asked to wait until helpdesk eligibility can be verified.
- The primary support plan holder can update the case origination email lists or phone helpdesk user lists at any time by creating a support case containing the requested changes.
