8.1 Introduction

This is to help give you an idea how end users will interact with the support software. This will help you to decide how to optimally integrate the software into your own website.

 

8.2 Registering (Creating a 'new' user account)

Inside the Main Administrator Control Panel >> Home >> Integration you will find the link to add the register function to your website. This link will look something like the example below.

http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/support_desk/register.cgi

The example above is fictional and will not work on your site. Make sure you use the link exactly as it appears under the Main Administrator Control Panel >> Home >> Integration

When end users click this link it will take them to the registration page where they can register/create a support account so that end users can obtain support.

Once all the information has been entered, the end user clicks the 'Register' button at the bottom of the screen. Once this has been done the end user will be given the option to continue on to the login screen where he/she will need to enter his/her username and password to log into the End User Control Panel to be able to post a support ticket.

 

8.3 End-User Log-in

You may find the link where end users may login to their Support Desk's or Control Panels from theMain Administrator Control Panel >> Home >> Integration. You may place this link anywhere on your web site's pages so that End Users may use it to log into the Support Control Panel to receive support. The link to the login screen will look something like this:

http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/support_desk/login.cgi

 

8.4 The ActivDesk Customer Control Panel.

The Customer Control Panel allows customers to view tickets they have posted in the past or post new Support Tickets. This Control Panel also gives them the option to edit their details as well as giving them access to the Knowledge Base.

 

8.5 Lost or Forgot your Password.

If the user has lost their password they can simply request it again. When the user clicks on the Forgot Password link they will be take to a screen where they can simply enter their email address. The corresponding username and password will then be sent to that specific email address.
