Which information should I include on the ticket? And why is the support agent asking for my website access details?
- You need to create an account in the ticket system to create a request for an investigation;
- Video embed (if applicable).
Our support agents are doing their best to investigate the issue as quickly and thoroughly as possible. But to ensure the agent has enough information to check the case, the following details may be requested by the agent.
Could you please share the website login credentials, so I check the issue from the backend?
The agent may need to access the website’s backend to take a candid look at the settings. In this case, the agent can ask to create a new user on the website https://www.theedigital.com/blog/add-new-user-wordpress. Please, ensure the user role has admin rights so the agent can investigate the issue in depth.
The page link with the issue is also needed.
Some websites have many pages, so it is hard to find the issue on a website without a direction. We appreciate a link to the page that contains the problem.
For instance, the indexer in the filter from the JetSmartFilters plugin stopped indexing the items, and the counter is showing zeros.
The link to a page can be copied and pasted to the ticket’s details.
Additionally, I need your permission to manage plugins and switch themes to check the conflict.
The user can confirm the permission. Here is an example: ‘Yes, I confirm my permission for you to deactivate the plugins and switch theme, just do not break the website…’.
Sure, we do not want to break anything on the website, which is why the following steps are a must!
Please, make sure to create a backup.
The backup ensures that your website can be restored if an error occurs. Therefore, it is a mandatory step to proceed with the support services.
If you do not want to provide live website access, please, share the staging site so we do not touch the live one 🙂
The previous steps involve deactivating plugins and switching the theme, and these are not the actions that are likely to happen on the live site. To keep the live website stable and working, we always ask for a staging copy of the website where the agent can perform all needed tests.
So the complete request to the support ticket system can look like this:
I have an issue with the Advanced Slider widget. It is not showing the images on mobile devices. The widget is on this page https://domain.com/croco-page. Just enter using a mobile device to see the issue.
Here are also the access details:
This is a staging website, so feel free to do the tests to find a solution. And I made a backup anyway 🙂
I look forward to your reply!
