Hi, for today’s video I’m going to show you how both you and your clients can manage support tickets by using your customer portal.

There are a couple of setup steps you need to do on the contact record.

First of all make sure the portal user box is ticked and secondly check that the helpdesk component is also enabled.

When they are good to go, they can log into their account on your customer portal.

From here they have the option to view current open tickets, or closed tickets, or to raise a new ticket with you.

When your client submits a new ticket it will automatically appear in your Helpdesk.

When you progress the ticket and have added your notes, tick the “show on portal” box to make the notes visible to your client.

From a client’s perspective they can see the notes you’ve added.

Using the “add attachment” option your client can also upload documents to the ticket.

Once you have resolved the ticket your client can review the history as well as retrieve any documents shared by finding the relevant tickets on the closed ticket sub tab.

Thank you for watching.
