Adding A New Support Case
In this training
In this training, we will cover
By the end you will understand the purpose and role of the case portal and create cases – regular and urgent. You will also understand how to review status on submitted cases and get information on your current status of support plans and entitlements.
Why use the Case Portal?
In the Crownpeak Community, you will find answers to frequently asked questions, a knowledgebase for each of the Crownpeak product lines, and discussion boards where users can share their best practices and solutions to common roadblocks. Start by searching for a solution to your issue within the community.
For more specific issues, or if you cannot find a solution in the Community, we have an integrated case portal in the Community. The case portal is a user portal that makes creating and monitoring support cases easy and efficient.
Support for Digital Experience Management (DXM), Digital Quality Management (DQM) and Digital Governance are integrated and streamlined here.
It provides access to open and resolved cases, submitted by you and your team.
The integration with Salesforce also provides Customer Success with a 360 view in order to serve you better, with access to all of our team’s activity as it happens.
Accessing Case Portal
The Support Case Portal is found in the Crownpeak Community, available at https://community.crownpeak.com/
You can also find a link to the Community at the top of crownpeak.com
In order to submit support cases you must be authorized through your organization, and also be a registered Crownpeak Community member.
Registration and Login
To request access to submit support cases, visit: https://www.crownpeak.com/about/support-portal and fill out the form.
First, you'll receive welcome and password email messages. Use the links to complete configuration.
Once complete, you are able to submit support cases within the Crownpeak Community.
You can also access the case portal on the right side of the screen from the Support link. (screen demo)
How to Create a Case
Create a case to:
From the Case Portal, click on Create Support Case button.
Enter the value for all of the required fields:
Subject Provide a brief title for your support case
Body This is where you can describe the issue in detail
Is set to medium by default and can be left as is.
Use high for Major function or features not working correctly, impairing Crownpeak’s ability to author, create template and push content for publication to endusers or website content is incorrect or rendering incorrectly
Use medium for Minor issues affecting usability of the product, but a workaround is provided with no impact to major feature/functionality or website changes or issues not deemed urgent or high
Use low for How-to questions and/or product enhancement requests
Please note, the response times differ based on your support plan
Urgent is reserved for cases when the platform is down, DXM live sites are down, DXM clients are unable to publish or access the platform, site notice is breaking the live site and users cannot access it.
Depending on your support plan, you should expect different response times.
Production environment down, public website down or a critical feature/function unavailable
Additional details are available in the Support Plan datasheet.
This field helps facilitate routing of the case (for example,] Hosting, CMS, Search, WCO, DQM).
Site URL (optional)
Listing the specific affected URL can help our support team pinpoint an issue.
The Client field is for reference purposes. Put any additional or relative info here.
If you have any supplementing files that would be helpful in your support case, you can attach them here, before submitting your support case.
Click on Save to submit the case.
Once the Case has been submitted, the person submitting the case will receive a confirmation email of the case creation.
The person submitting the case will also receive an email notification once a product support team member starts working on the case.
Understanding Resolved and Closed Cases
Once a Support team member finishes working on a case they would normally send a comment out to the case contact and change the status of the case to Resolved. Once a case is set to Resolved, the case contact will receive an email with the details and actions taken made on the case.
Support Plans and Entitlements
The Platform, Premier and Elite support plans entitle you to a certain number of support cases each month.
You can also purchase an Annual Absolute Services retainer for projects to support on-going maintenance and growth.
To track your entitlements and support hours, please contact your customer success manager to request an entitlement report.
