Once Im finally in the page works a treat. Even after closing and reopening the IE...

7 Replies and 4536 Views Spinning Helpmaster Pro Logo  4536  7 Started by  Lisa I hope someone can help me.&160; We have just started using the Web module and have found that for certain things it works quite well, but for other things it looks like Helpmaster breaks.&160; I am able to search for jobs, open them and action them.&160; However whenever there is a multi-page list of jobs and I attempt to navigate to the next page, I get a spinning Helpmaster Pro logo and nothing else.&160; This also occurs in the Helpdesk explorer, on first opening the explorer, it shows ...

1 Replies and 3047 Views Bump a job via the self-service portal  3047  1 Started by  Rod Weir Here&39;s an interesting idea that was sent through to our tech support recently. Hey, when in the Self Service portal, can you “bump” a job. Ie lets say you have ten jobs in the list, and 3 of them are getting pretty urgent, can you bump/nudge them , ie to get our attention. Some of our big sites might have say 50 jobs, and depending on what’s happening, they will want to bring certain ones to our attention.  A bit like sending an email asking” what happening...

1 Replies and 4935 Views What will your clients be able to see?  4935  1 Started by  Renee Weir It's all well and good to give your client's a self-service option, but what if you don't want them playing around with their job, or seeing all of the information associated with them.&160; How flexible is the web interface&160; At the lowest level, you can configure the web interface so your client's can only view their jobs.&160; This keeps them informed, without giving them authority to change things. At the highest level, they can see both their jobs, and those of everyone else linked...
