Registered users can submit trouble tickets to the specialists of our Technical support. The Support center module is intended for the technical support automation. In this module you can use a wide range of features for managing your users' trouble tickets.

There are four user types that may submit tickets to the Support center:

  • Control panel administrator may use the support center to process problem reports of his resellers and users, or users of his resellers, and submit tickets to the control panel user accounts.
  • Reseller may use the support center to process trouble tickets posted by his users' tickets and submit tickets to his administrator.
  • User may use the support center to process trouble tickets sent by his FTP accounts and mailboxes owners. A user may submit new tickets to a reseller or a control panel administrator.
  • FTP accounts and Mailbox users may use the support center in order to post tickets for their users they belong to.

If a user has provided his e-mail address in the Control panel settings, all the tickets submitted to him by other accounts will be automatically sent to a specified e-mail address.

All trouble tickets are grouped by the subject. It helps to trace the history of answers. Once the problem is resolved, it should be placed to the archive.
