    Reminder: The Stand-alone Incident and Task Consoles are no longer supported

     

    The Incident Console and Task Console were intended as precursors to the Remedyforce Console. You may recall we introduced the Remedyforce Console in Winter 15 and a new and improved Remedyforce Console in the Winter 17 Release.  BMC announced with the Summer 17 release that we will no longer support the stand-alone consoles for incidents and tasks. If you are still using the stand-alone consoles, we recommend that you migrate to the Remedyforce Console immediately and encourage you to contact your Business Relationship Manager if you need assistance.
