Submitting a new ticket
First you will need to click on the ‘New support ticket’ located on the right-hand side of the Portal Home page.
You will be taken to the new ticket form which will ask you for information required to create a new ticket.
Completing this as accurately as possible will assist the engineers in responding and diagnosing the issue as quickly as possible.
It is our aim to work on all tickets as quickly as possible. However, at times of high volume, we will prioritise tickets based on their Urgency and Impact (for details of these please refer to your Service Level Agreements). Please refrain from putting all tickets as Urgent as this will not allow us to prioritise and will increase resolution times as we need to assess the ticket further to apply the appropriate Priority for the ticket.
From the home page navigate to the ‘Tickets’. From this page, you will be presented with a list of all your tickets registered in the portal. These can be filtered by choosing the dropdown triangle to the right of the ticket object, as highlighted in the picture below.
It is also possible to sort these tickets by choosing from the dropdown triangle as highlighted in this picture. Possible options are Date Created, Last Modified and Status.
It is also possible to export your tickets from the portal and create a Comma-delimited file(CSV) or an excel spreadsheet containing the tickets that you have filtered on your view in the Portal.
To export your ticket fields to a CSV file:
- Log into your support portal.
- Go to the Tickets tab.
- From the Tickets list, filter all the tickets you want to export using the dropdown menu’s (explained previously).
- Click on ‘Export’ on the top right hand side of the portal.
- A separate dialog box will appear where you will be able to choose the fields you want to include in the CSV file. Use the filters to determine the range and parameters to download.
- Click on the Export button and the report will be generated and sent to your email address (listed under your profile settings). Make sure you check your spam folder as well if you don't receive the email.
