Isode Support System
Isode uses the TOPdesk (system to record, track and deliver answers to support incidents. As an Isode support customer, you will have access to the TOPdesk self-service portal, enabling you to submit, update and track your own incidents, search the knowledge base (which includes answers to your previous incidents and, optionally, incidents submitted by other parts of your organisation) and receive news about product updates and product releases. The portal is accessible via a browser and a mobile (Android and IOS) app. You can additionally submit and update incidents, and interact with Isode support, via email and (if you have a Silver or Gold support contract) telephone. All of these interactions will also be recorded in TOPdesk.
The more information we have on your support issue, the quicker we can help you resolve it. With this in mind customers using our support services are expected to:
- Perform initial diagnosis to isolate the incident area
- Gather supporting data, trace information or dump files
- Determine and report recent environment changes
- Provide a description of the incident, including business impact
- Make reasonable attempts to analyze the problem, using Isode manuals and other documentation.
