The Brisk Support Dashboard provides agents with access to the highest priority tickets through the ticket checkout process. The topmost section of the dashboard lists a summary of all queues and the number of open tickets awaiting agent responses in each queue. If agents are permitted to update multiple tickets simultaneously (see Account Settings), the workload summary will contain links to the tickets page with results automatically filtered by the selected queue. For agents not designated as administrators, below the workload summary will be the "Retrieve Ticket" button, which is used to check out the waiting ticket with the highest priority.
