The only problem with this extension is the technical support that is almost non existent. Also, the documentation is not that good, but can be improved.
If you buy this extension, you are on your own if you face problems with it. This is the reason I give this extension 4 stars instead of 5.
Allowing "employees" from the same "company" to be able to share "tickets" submitted by their colleagues.
Helpdesk did it!!
This extension is huge yet easy to use once you read the docs and understand how you wish your helpdask to work.
There a lot of features, dynamic tickets, Departments, Custom Fields, Mail Notification, FAQs, knowledge base, as so much more.
Allow your "staff" to create tickets for your customers, assign the ticket to other staff, automatically change status based on the previous state, add attachments, view ticket logs, create new users, this list keeps going on an on for the feature that are available on the front end.
Set specific departments for users to add tickets to, even create a staff department that only staff can view. Just blown away by how powerful this is.
As for the extensions support, it works, they use this extension themselves, the developers respond timely and are proactive regarding feature requests and any minor issues I have found.
Do not be put of by the price, what you get in comparison to other solutions is a well designed, smart looking, feature packed professional helpdesk solution.
I have not been as excited by an extension since I started using K2 all them years ago.
However I will warn you, this component is not for the newbie or impatient type of user. This has a lot of features and it is a MONSTER to set up. If you only need basic ticket functions I would say go with some other generic system. But if you need robust ticket, department, and user management that includes automation, then THIS is your new baby.
For anyone needing a very professionally built ticketing system that is damn near enterprise level software I would highly recommend this extension.
Otherwise, it looks in a class of its own.
Sorry, the 5 days of traveling for JandBeyond with strikes of air controls in Portigal screwed up our timings but we are catching all up already. Probably you already were answered.
It is very comprehensive and has a lot of options to configure. Got stumped a couple of times. But submitted a ticket to developer and he responded quickly.
Encountered a couple of bugs and these have been fixed in the next release.
So glad I found this product.
The documentation needs work, but maQMA states clearly that they are continually working on it. I can only imagine that they've had such a huge devotion spent to development rather than documentation. I would rather have a great component and try to figure it out myself than one that doesn't work but overly documented.
The support team is great! They responded to me within 2 hours to a "low level" question.
This component is HIGHLY recommended. I've spent more for components that do far less. There is another help desk component out there for twice as much that doesn't nearly do as much. I've researched them all thoroughly before I purchased it too.
Setting up the system can be quite detailed but that depends on the level and type of support you wish to offer.
Support from the Developers is excellent. Well done and highly recommended.
A couple of bugs I found, but the developers solved them immediately and posted me update files.
EXCELLENT JOB GUYS - keep up the great work.
Furthermore the component itself can be useful for many different scopes.
the support is quick, simple, friendly and efficent.
An excellent experience at all.
The developer responded immediately to my inquiries, assisted my integration, and included some of my needs in subsequent updates to the system. The Helpdesk itself is robust, solid, and straight-forward. This extension gets the highest rating.
It's ability to manage not only helpdesk tickets but clients and SLA's as well takes to the top for Helpdesk extensions.
Not only does this component provide everything you need in a ticketing / kb / download system, the support is second to none. Each time I submitted an enquiry I received a response in under 24 hours.
Integration with Virtuemart, and activity governed contracts has allowed us to manage our requests and ensure our company remains profitable.
One of my favourite Joomla extensions and I have seen / used a lot of Joomla extenions !!
Great work guys!
I have installed hundreds of components over the years...am a bit of a joomla fan to say the least.
I wanted a helpdesk and other ones that seemed great caused issues for me. I found this helpdesk which i'd never noticed before. I bit the bullet and bought it. Installed it...and oh my gosh..this is so intuitive, SO SO feature rich (2hrs into playing and i still discover major features! Not to mention the amount of modules, translations, plugins, and links to different 3rd party components...stunning!). I hit some errors upon initial installation. I wrote on the support forums (which seemed a bit empty and worried me)...within a couple of hours, i had the developer personally replying. He then went on to skype chat with me and look at my site personally. The next day i woke up to see he'd been working at night to fix things. He contacted me as soon as he came to work...came back..sorted everything for me. Shared his screen with me and gave me a few explanations to things i'd not understood and introduced me to his other products.
I have no idea whether to go on more about this EXCELLENT helpdesk component, that's beautiful to look at..and am sure can handle much more than my needs if necessary, or whether to go on more about this developer. If only all developers worked like this and cared so much about their work. THere's a reason the official joomla site uses this component. I know i said one word and this came to more. So what? You get the idea...don't think twice...don't try the other helpdesk components - that simple! (And no i'm in no way affiliated with this...i'm just outstanded by the level of support, and the quality of this component)
Congratulations and keep up with the good work.
Got this extension a few days ago and is the MOST powerful helpdesk component without any doubts, feature rich as no other.
Just subscribed their club so excited I am with it =)
Thanks, glad to hear you like it :)
Feedback is welcome to extend the component even more. Currently we're working on a mobile interface and integration with Community Builder.
