Registered users can submit trouble tickets to the specialists of our Technical support. You can select a category associated with the problem. While creating or editing a category, you may assign a department that will be in charge for your issues.

In this module you can use a wide range of features for managing your customers' tickets. The provider can see a list of trouble tickets from his users, respond them, submit new tickets and so on. You can also configure rules to define how tickets are handled when submitted.
