Support Departments

Support departments help you categorize tickets. The first step in the user ticket submission process is to choose a department. You can assign different staff to different departments with different people handling the different areas. Sales, Support, and Billing are common departments.

You can access this feature at Configuration () > System Settings > Support Departments.

For more information, see Support Tickets.

Creating Departments

To set up a new support department, click Add New Department and configure the desired department settings.

For steps to create a support department, see Add a Support Department.

Custom Fields

After you create a department, you can create custom fields to display during ticket submission.

To do this:

  1. Click the Edit icon for the desired department.
  2. Choose the Custom Fields tab.
  3. Enter the requested field information and choose a field type.
  4. Check the appropriate checkboxes to show or hide the field or require a response.
  5. Click Save Changes.
For more information, see Custom Fields.

Email Piping and Importing

You can automatically send user emails into the ticket system as tickets and ticket replies. To do this, you will need to either pipe or import the email into WHMCS (email piping and email importing). Email piping and email importing use separate configurations and are distinct methods of importing email replies.

  • We recommend using email piping if you use cPanel & WHM and only import email replies from one domain.
  • We recommend using email importing if you use other control panels or if you want to import email from multiple domains.
