Course Objectives

 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.

  • For DQM, Evidon and other DXM request types please choose DQM, Consent, CMS, or other applicable type.  ie. Monitoring - issues with scanning


Site URL (optional)

Listing the specific affected URL can help our support team pinpoint an issue.

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

Resolved 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.

  • If additional actions need to be completed that are not included in the initial case but is related to it, please open a new case and reference the old case number
  • If there is further questions related to the current case, or if the case is not complete please add a comment on the case feed. This will reopen the case.

Closed Cases

  • If the support team receives an acknowledgement from the user after the case has been resolved the support team member will close the case
  • For cases awaiting client feedback, the support team member assigned will attempt to contact the case owner. If no feedback is received, the case will be closed by the support team member after 7 days
  • Cases that are resolved will automatically close after 7 days if no feedback from case comments are received
  • The case contact will receive an email notification once a case is closed


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.
