How do I Create Tickets in the End-user Portal?

    As an end-user, you can submit tickets in the Portal.

    Remember: When an admin or an agent signs in to the End-user Portal, they are treated as end-users and can manage only those tickets that either they have created or were submitted on their behalf.
    1. Sign in to the End-user Portal at https://helpdesk.me/tickets.
    2. Click Add new ticket.

      The Ticket details page appears.

    3. Fill in the details of your ticket.
      • Add a Subject that best describes your issue and gives an immediate idea about your problem to an agent.
      • Add a Summary that is as detailed as possible. This helps an agent better understand your issue.
      • Make sure the correct Helpdesk service is selected. The ticket will be channeled to the agents of the selected helpdesk service.
      • You can also Attach Files to describe your issue. See below for supported file types.
      • Select a Priority for your ticket, unless you want to use the default ticket priority, which is Medium.
      • Optionally, add a Due date by when your issue should be resolved.
    4. Save your ticket.
    Results: You will receive an email notification about creating a ticket with all the details that you have entered.
    Note: You can only add comments to existing tickets as described in How do I Add Comments to a Ticket in the End-user Portal?
